IF YOUR FAMILY HAS LOST A LOVED ONE DUE TO NEGLIGENCE, YOU MAY BE ELIGIBLE TO FILE A WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIM ON BEHALF OF YOUR LOVED ONE. UNDER CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES, A DOMESTIC LIFE PARTNER MAY ALSO BE ELIGIBLE TO FILE A WRONGFUL DEATH ACTION ON BEHALF OF A LOVED ONE.
When it happens, the devastation of such a sudden and unexpected loss is overwhelming. Survivors of victims of wrongful death are entitled to recover money for their pain and suffering, loss of support and services, lost wages, medical expenses and funeral expenses.
Wrongful death cases are among the most difficult lawsuits because they involve the most tragic of events that cause the most harm to the survivors left behind. For this reason, it is important that you hire a lawyer that is experienced, compassionate, dedicated, and will fight for your family as if they are fighting for themselves

My husband and I cannot say enough about Mr. Thomas Rogers and his associates at Wites Law Firm. Not only were they Professional but they listened and clarified every step that was had to be done on our behalf.
The outcome was remarkable but most of all he and his staff made us feel not only part of the process but did so at a pace that we could understand and make decisions on our own without feeling any pressure. This was the best experience we have had dealing with an attorney in South Florida and would highly recommend Mr. Rogers and his associates to anyone who is in need of help with an insurance claim. Many thanks for their caring and thoughtfulness towards us as clients.Manta Ray Inn
I want to take the opportunity to compliment Marc Wites and his staff on the considerate and professional service he extended to us in negotiating our insurance claim. We were faced with the frustrating experience of dealing with our insurance company in the wake of Hurricane Irma.
Their inconsiderate and stingy offer led us to engage the Wites Law Firm to help us gain the funds to enable us to actually make the repairs our property needed. They did so in close communication with us, negotiating with the insurance company’s attorney in a most professional manner. We would not hesitate to call on Marc again if the need arose and we encourage anyone in need to do so as well.Daniel & Loretta Forer

No. We handle wrongful death cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not have to pay us any attorney’s fees or costs unless we obtain a recovery for you.
Yes. At Wites Law Firm we do not just settle cases. If we cannot obtain a fair and reasonable settlement for you without filing a lawsuit, we will file a lawsuit for you and your family. We will fight your case in court for as long as necessary to obtain the justice that you deserve. If your case goes to trial we will try your case; we will not refer you or your case to another law firm to file a lawsuit or to go to trial.

The Wrongful Death Act sets forth the types of damages that each survivor may recover. For example, a surviving spouse may recover damages for mental pain and suffering, loss of support and services, medical and funeral expenses, and the present value of the deceased’s future earnings (which is often referred to as “net accumulations”). All survivors may recover damages for loss of support and services. This can include monetary support and services (such as a household task) that the survivors will have to pay for in the future as a result of the deceased’s death. A minor child (which is defined by the Act as someone under the age of 25) can recover damages for lost parental companionship, instruction and guidance (which is similar to pain and suffering), but an adult child (i.e., someone over the age of 25) can only recover such damages if the deceased does not have a surviving spouse. Child survivors of all ages can recover loss of support and services. The deceased’s estate can also recover damages such as medical and funeral expenses.
