Ormond Beach Wrongful Death Attorney

Securing Compensation for Families of Fatal Accident Victims

When a loved one is tragically taken from you, you have the option to secure legal help to bring you justice. It may be possible to file a wrongful death suit against any party who acted negligently in such a way that it caused your loved one's death. While this can be a very difficult time, at Vukelja Law, we understand how to guide you through. Our main priority is to help you secure fair compensation and deserved justice.

Our Ormond Beach personal injury attorney can file a wrongful death claim on your behalf, taking the legal burden off of your shoulders so that you can focus on your family and loved ones. When faced with such a trying time, you need to know that your legal team is experienced and competent enough to handle your case. At our firm, you will not have to think twice about why you obtained our services—we have recovered millions of dollars for our clients over the years.

Who can file a wrongful death claim?


In the state of Florida, you have two years to file a wrongful death claim to bring justice for the loss of your loved one. This is established by the state's statute of limitations. After this time, no court will likely hear your case. That is why you need to meet with a legal advocate as soon as possible to discuss your case.

You may be eligible to file a wrongful death suit if:

  • You are an immediate family member or a dependent of the decedent;
  • Someone else's negligent behavior was the cause of the death; and
  • That person owed your loved one a standard of care.

By filing a lawsuit, you and your loved ones can not only gain peace of mind knowing justice has been served, but can also obtain financial compensation to pay for all related expenses and losses.

What type of compensation can be recovered?

Nothing can fully compensate for a lost life, of course, but such a claim can still help you cover financial and emotional damages to a certain extent.

Wrongful death damages can include:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of income or support
  • Medical bills accrued before the victim's death
  • Loss of consortium
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages

Vukelja Law has the experience and can help you file a solid claim for the loss of your family member or loved one. We offer compassionate legal counsel and support balanced by aggressive courtroom action and negotiations.
