Orlando Wrongful Death Lawyers

Orlando Wrongful Death Attorneys

The death of a loved one is always a painful event, and when that death was preventable grief is compounded by anger. Nothing can ever truly make things right, but you do have the opportunity to hold the party that caused your loved one’s death financially responsible for the losses they have caused you and your family. You may be entitled to compensation for the contributions that your loved one would have made both monetarily and personally, as well as your own suffering. Our Orlando wrongful death attorneys of Colling Gilbert Wright & Carter are here to help you and your family get the compensation you deserve.

You Can Afford a Wrongful Death Attorney

The loss of a loved one is often accompanied by heavy financial burdens. If concern about the cost of hiring a lawyer is holding you back from taking legal action, rest assured. You initial consultation is free and from there we work on a contingency basis which means that you pay no attorney’s fee unless we recover monetary compensation on your behalf.

Why You Must Act Quickly

There is a time limit for filing your lawsuit called the statute of limitations. In most wrongful death cases the statute of limitations is two years, but there are some exceptions and you may have more or less time depending on the nature of your case.

When a Wrongful Death Lawsuit May be Appropriate

A wrongful death lawsuit is very different to a criminal murder case. It is not necessary to prove or even raise the issue of intent in most cases. You must merely prove that someone else’s negligence caused your loved one’s death. You may be entitled to compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit if your loved one died as a result of:

  • Someone else’s negligence, including medical malpractice and auto accidents
  • Intentional wrongdoing without the intent to cause harm
  • Intentional harm to your loved one
  • A defective product

If you have lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing in Orlando or anywhere in Florida, please call the Orlando wrongful death lawyers of Colling Gilbert Wright & Carter or submit an online questionnaire. The initial consultation with our wrongful death attorneys is free, and if we agree to represent you, we will work for a contingent fee, which means we won’t get paid for our services unless you receive a settlement or an award. In Florida, a wrongful death lawsuit must be filed before the expiration of the statute of limitations. Please call right away to ensure that you do not waive your right to possible compensation.
