Fatal Auto Accidents

When a family loses someone as a result of another’s carelessness, they have to cope with a sudden tragedy.

We understand what you are going through. You are dealing with shock, grief, a life significantly changed, and perhaps financial worries.

Let us handle the legal worries. We want to hear about your situation, and give you answers to your questions. We will work hard to make your path easier now and into the future. Contact a Tampa fatal car accidents attorney.

You have a right to hold the negligent parties financially responsible. Of course, you want an investigation. You want to know what happened. We will do a thorough investigation in order to prove fault by any and all that are responsible.

No amount of money can compensate you for losing a loved one, but your worries and difficulties can be eased with a full financial recovery. It shouldn’t have happened. Personal injury lawsuits deter future negligence, and others from being harmed or killed.

Your Rights

Car accidents are by far the most common cause of wrongful death in Florida. Motor vehicle–related injuries are the leading cause of death among people ages 1-34, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Florida has a “Wrongful Death Act” stating what your rights are now. Spouses, children and parents may have a right to claim damages.

We want to advise you that even in cases of wrongful death, there is a limited time, a “statute of limitations,” in which you can commence a wrongful death action. Contact a Clearwater wrongful death lawyer for more information.

We handle these cases on a contingent fee basis. You will not owe attorney fees unless and until we obtain a settlement or jury verdict for you. Call a Tampa fatal car accidents attorney at the Law Offices of Michael R. Herron, P.A., at 813.258.4878 for a free initial consultation.
