At Charpentier Law Firm, P.A., we handle personal injury and wrongful death cases. Unlike personal injury claims, wrongful death cases are subject to statutory laws. If you have lost someone you love to wrongful death, our lawyers, serving Central Florida from our Melbourne, Titusville, and Cocoa offices, can help you.
We handle personal injury and wrongful death cases, and wrongful death cases. It’s important to know that wrongful death cases are different than personal injury cases from a legal standpoint. For the most part personal injury cases are governed by what we attorneys call a common law, wrongful death cases are governed by Statutory Law. In Florida, our state statue specifically sets forth the rights and the damages to which the survivals of the wrongful death claim victim are entitle. Another difference between personal injury cases and wrongful death cases is obvious. The traumatic losses of the loved one, a mother, a father, yes sometime even a child. We work with the family and the survivors not only in the legal sense, but in the personal sense to help get them through what is always the tiring time.
