Wrongful Death

South Florida Wrongful Death Claim Lawyer

After losing a child, spouse, or other loved one in a fatal accident, Karikas & Kasaris, P.A., in St. Petersburg, Florida, can help you recover the damages and justice to which you are entitled. Many personal injury lawyers will tell you that they will listen carefully to all of your concerns. However, you need more than just a sympathetic ear during these difficult times. At the personal injury law firm of Karikas & Kasaris, P.A., we place your well-being as our highest priority. Although we will go to every possible length to help you receive damages, we understand that no amount of money could ever replace your loved one.

We do more than listen. We fight for your family's future.

After you have had time to absorb the loss of your family member, we will be ready to work for you. Contact us to discuss your family's circumstances. Whether the wrongful death accident occurred in a car accident, or at work, we have the legal experience and professional skills to help you get the compensation your family needs during this difficult time.

Family estate survival actions

In addition to a wrongful death lawsuit filed by a spouse or surviving family member, the estate of the deceased person may also have a legitimate claim for damages based on future losses. The laws regarding "survival actions" in Florida are complex and not every wrongful death claim will meet the requirements. We have the experience and knowledge to help you determine what your legal options are.

What a wrongful death is really worth

Nobody can place a value on the life of another person. The best our laws can do is determine the immediate and future amount of lost earnings and the subjective value of emotional distress and accompanying loss. Karikas & Kasaris, P.A., works with professional actuaries, pension valuation consultants, and other independent consultants to help you fight for the full and fair amount of money to which you are entitled. We do more than just listen and care, we fight to protect your rights and interests.

We handle all wrongful death cases on contingency, meaning you do not pay any fees or costs unless you receive money in a settlement or by jury award.

Contact our offices to schedule a free consultation. In most cases, you have two years from the date of the fatal accident or death to file a wrongful death claim. Please call 727.323.4533.
