Wrongful Death

Our caring team at Zappitell Law Firm realizes that there is nothing more heartbreaking than having your loving family member tragically taken away from you. During your time of grief, we would like to help you recognize how you can find the peace and the justice you seek by pursuing a wrongful death claim.

We Can Help You Understand Your Legal Rights During This Challenging Time

Since 1991, founder David J. Zappitell and the rest of our team at Zappitell Law Firm have assisted surviving spouses, children and other family members grieving the preventable death of their loved ones in Florida and throughout the United States.

While it may be difficult to concentrate on anything other than the heartache you are feeling, our firm is here to help you understand that you do have legal rights when your loved one’s death resulted from another party’s careless or negligent acts.

We believe in holding the responsible parties accountable for the fatal injuries they have caused your loved one. The Florida Wrongful Death Act protects the rights of the deceased (Florida Statutes 768.16 – 768.26). When you work with our firm, our team will work closely with you to explain what Florida law offers surviving family members, including financial compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Funeral expenses
  • Mental pain and suffering for surviving loved ones 

Our team is aware that no amount of compensation can ever replace your loved one, but it can help to alleviate the financial burdens associated with your family member’s accidental death. We understand that your decision is difficult, but we want you to know that our lawyers will never pressure you into pursuing a wrongful death claim if you are unsure about your choice. You can expect the patience and the respect you deserve when you work with the Zappitell Law Firm. We care about your best interests and your well-being. If you decide to pursue a wrongful death claim, we will work to build a thorough case on your loved one’s behalf.
