Hollywood is one of the principal cities in South Florida and is the twelfth largest city in the state. Located in Broward County, Hollywood has a population of nearly 141,000 within its 27 square miles of area and boasts nearly 6 miles of Atlantic coastline. Such a large and bustling area is the site of a number of wrongful death accidents every year.

If you have lost a loved one unexpectedly, taking legal action may not be an immediate priority for you as you deal with grief and funeral arrangements. Unfortunately, many families of the victims of wrongful death accidents face significant financial difficulties on top of the emotional trauma of their loss, so it is important for survivors to contact a wrongful death attorney as soon as possible to protect their rights and maximize the compensation they may need to stay afloat without the support of the deceased.


A wrongful death is the death of an individual that results from the negligence or misconduct of another person, a business, or an organization. Wrongful death accidents or incidents may include such cases as slip and fall accidents that result in fatality, deadly automobile or motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice, defective safety equipment, or even murder. Any of these situations can be the basis of a civil action to receive financial compensation from those responsible for the wrongful death.

According to the Florida Wrongful Death Act, the surviving family members (spouse, child, parent, or any related dependent) of someone killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another person may pursue compensation for their financial and emotional losses. There is a Florida statute of limitations for claiming damages from Wrongful death accidents, so it is very important to pursue legal action quickly following an unexpected death in the family.
