Florida Highway Patrol responded to the scene of the wrongful death accident that occurred at approximately 2:54 a.m. The Tampa Bay wrongful death attorneys at The Frank Santini Law Firm regrettably express our thoughts and prayers to the friends and family of the victim. The Frank Santini Law Firm is available 24/7 to support family and friends as they try to understand the cause of this Tampa Bay motorcycle accident.
A wrongful death lawsuit in Hillsborough County or Pinellas County is filed by what the courts’ call the “personal representative” of the accident victim. If the deceased does not have a will, the court will have to assign a representative, which is typically next of kin like a spouse, a sibling, a parent, or adult children. In wrongful death cases, the lawsuit is designed to help the victim’s “beneficiaries.” In Tampa Bay and throughout Florida, the beneficiaries are typically the surviving spouse, parents or children. It seems almost cliché to state that dealing with a wrongful death accident is a difficult time, and, unfortunately, words often fall short. But, for individuals dealing with wrongful death accidents and serious personal injuries the Tampa Bay personal injury attorneys at The Frank Santini Law Firm can help. Don’t hesitate to call our Tampa Bay wrongful death lawyers for a free consultation.
