Nothing will ever be able to compensate for the harm a family member experienced due to someone else’s negligence or bad conduct. Your life has changed significantly, and it’s possible that it won’t ever be the same again. It’s critical to hold the culprit accountable. Although it could be difficult to move forward after a loss, Florida only offers you a short window of time to bring a claim against the responsible party. You lose all rights once that period has passed. You don’t have to go through this by yourself.
