helps families of wrongful death victims.


Shorstein, Lasnetski, & Gihon helps families victimized by a wrongful death.

Wrongful death cases arise when a person dies due to the negligence or misconduct of another and the decedent leaves relatives or dependents who are entitled to damages as a result. The untimely death of a family member may be caused by an auto accident, a truck accident, a defective product, an airplane crash, exposure to hazardous conditions, criminal activity or other causes. The attorneys at Shorstein, Lasnetski & Gihon understand that the death of a family member takes a significant emotional toll and can also bring serious financial problems. We use our experience and skills in handling wrongful death litigation to deal with the many and often complex legal aspects of our clients’ cases so the families can focus on the healing process.


What is the Wrongful Death Law in Florida?

You can find Florida's Wrongful Death statutes in Florida Statutes Sections 768.16 - 768.26.  Florida Statute 768.19 provides statutory authorization for a wrongful death lawsuit, despite the fact that the aggrieved person is deceased.  Florida Statute 768.20 provides that the personal representative of the person who died shall bring the suit on behalf of the person's survivors and estate.  This statute also provides that the estate of a person can be sued if that person negligently caused the death of another person.
