The Florida Wrongful Death Act is contained in sections 768.16 – 768.26, Florida Statutes.

Laws in Florida, and in all states, govern the time frame in which a wrongful death lawsuit may be filed. In Florida, the statute of limitations for a wrongful death action is two years, however, that can change depending upon certain circumstances. Anyone with a potential case should consult an experienced wrongful death law firm to determine what law or laws apply to them.

Wrongful death generally means a lawsuit is filed when the wrongful conduct of a person or entity results in the death of another person. Like personal injury, this area of tort can involve every area of tort practice – from premise liability or auto accidents to dangerous products on the market.

I am a nice generous person that will treat you with respect. I am married and a father of two young children. When I am not spending time with my family I will be in my office working ON YOUR CASE. You are my client but you are also my employer – I WORK FOR YOU and will work as hard as possible to make you feel I will be your go to lawyer for the rest of your life.

What We Can Do For You

At The Benenati Law Firm, we understand that accidents can happen to anyone at any time and can change lives forever.

Common causes of wrongful death claims include:

  • Medical Malpractice
  • Car Accidents
  • Work-related Injuries
  • Maritime Accidents
  • Offshore Accidents
  • Criminal Attacks
  • Airplane or Train Accidents
  • Nursing Home Abuse
  • Defective Products
  • Construction Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Trucking Accidents

The death of a family member is especially upsetting when it is caused by the careless behavior of another individual. For many people who are mourning the death of a loved one, the thought of taking legal action is far from their mind. However, the unexpected passing of a loved one can often leave families with many expenses such as hospital bills, funeral, and burial costs. You may be able to receive compensation for these expenses along with other damages including compensation of lost wages and emotional distress.

If you have been affected by the wrongful death of a family member, do not neglect your legal rights. Your first step should be to consult with an experienced wrongful death attorney. One of our wrongful death lawyers will help determine, first, who is the personal representative authorized to bring a lawsuit on behalf of the estate of a deceased person against the persons or entities responsible for the victim’s death.

If you have lost a parent, spouse, or child in an accident or by wrongful act, you can file a wrongful death claim against the person(s) responsible.

The pain and suffering caused by a wrongful death is often unbearable and it can take several years for a family to recover from the tragedy.

We understand that when a loved one dies, a wrongful death claim is frequently the last thing on anyone’s mind.


It is not until much later that the family members have the time and ability to consider the possibility of a wrongful death claim. As a result, in some cases, the investigation does not begin until months or years later. Proving a wrongful death claim often requires reconstruction of the incident, the use of highly skilled expert witnesses, strong investigative techniques, and having the necessary skill and experience to stand up to the defendants. You should consult with an experienced wrongful death attorney immediately. Do not delay. Call us now at 407-777-7777 to tell us what happened or email us here today. We look forward to hearing from you.

Don’t Just Take Our Word For It

Robert and Joyce W.

“We were very impressed with professionalism no matter who we spoke to when we called the office. We were always treated with respect and kindness. The process was very smooth and there were no surprises. The whole procedure was explained beforehand and the process was exactly as explained. We were very embarrassed at having to file bankruptcy but Mr. Benenati and his staff always made us feel at ease and helped us to maintain our dignity through a very difficult time. We cannot thank them enough for helping us to get a fresh start!”
