Our Williston Wrongful Death Lawyers Offer Legal Support

If you suspect your loved one’s death was caused by another’s negligence, our firm will investigate the accident to uncover evidence of liability. We look at police and medical reports, speak with eyewitnesses, and bring in expert analysts to uncover who is financially responsible.

We help you file a claim with the liable party(s) insurance company and enter into negotiations for the full and fair compensation settlement you and your family are due. If negotiations falter, we prepare for trial and represent your family’s interests in court.

Here are some things we want you to know about partnering with our Levy County lawyers:

You Have a Limited Window to Seek Damages

Florida has a two-year statute of limitations for wrongful death lawsuits, meaning you have two years from the date of your loved one’s passing to file a lawsuit. If you don’t act within this period, you could lose the right to compensation––even if you have stacks of evidence and thousands of dollars in damages.

When you partner with us, you don’t have to worry about tracking deadlines or crossing off days on your calendar. We handle your case’s time-sensitive aspects, including the statute of limitations.

Only Certain Parties Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

In addition to the statute of limitations, Florida law notes that only a personal representative of the decedent’s estate can seek compensation. Once they resolve the case, they distribute the proceeds to the decedent’s beneficiaries, which may include their spouse, parents, and children.

Even if you’re unsure whether you’re the personal representative, we want to hear from you. We can clear up any misunderstanding about the state’s wrongful death laws and advise you of your options.

Meldon Law CARES About Your Williston Wrongful Death Case

Our law firm was established by Attorney Jeffrey Meldon more than 50 years ago. Even after being in the field for decades, he retains a zeal for advocating for grieving families.

We serve our clients with compassion and integrity, taking on their fights like they are our own. At the end of the day, our story is always the same: we won’t back down.

Our Clients Say Positive Things About Our Firm Time and Time Again

Our Wrongful Death Lawyers in Williston Seek These Damages

Compensation in a wrongful death case can’t turn back the clock and undo what happened. Yet, it can offer your family financial resources in rebuilding their lives and moving forward. We shoot for the highest possible settlement during negotiations––and not a penny less. As noted, if we feel as though the insurer isn’t cooperating or negotiating in good faith, we can file a lawsuit.

Financial recovery may comprise:

  • Loss of future financial and emotional support
  • Loss of companionship
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of parental companionship, guidance, and instruction
  • Medical expenses related to the injury prior to death
  • Funeral expenses

You could recover other losses not listed here, depending on your situation. We use receipts and bills to learn the value of your economic losses. We evaluate your loved one’s passing, role in your life, and earning capacity when calculating the cost of your pain and suffering.

Check Out Our Previous Case Results

To our clients, we’re more than lawyers. We’re part of their support systems. In addition to pursuing full compensation for their losses, we lend our support, advocacy, and listening skills. Since we first opened in 1971, we’ve recovered millions for grieving families.

We know you’re in a delicate state, so we won’t discuss the intimate details of these cases here. But we do want to share that:

  • Recently, we recovered $250,000 and $110,000 for two fatal medical malpractice cases. Here, we consulted with healthcare providers and other experts to prove negligence.
  • We recovered $250,000 for a fatal drowning. We gathered compelling evidence showing that a SCUBA instructor’s negligence led to the incident.

These are just a fraction of the settlements we’ve recovered during our years of service. Our team doesn’t stop fighting until we secure the best possible outcome.
