Hello, did you lose someone to injuries from an accident? Respectfully, we provide the means for you to hold
the person or corporation responsible for your loss. My name is John Kevin Griffin, I am a Florida lawyer licensed to
practice law in Federal and State Courts. Our legal team negotiates the recovery of money damages from
the insurance company of the negligent person or corporation that caused the injury.
We will answer your questions.
Wrongful Death and Accidental Death
A wrongful death is an accidental death that occurs when the negligent conduct of a person or
corporation causes another person to experience personal injury which leads to premature death.
If you suspect the premature death of your loved one was caused by negligence please contact us.
We will thoroughly investigate and prepare your claim.
The Value of a Life is Inestimable
The law allows money damages be paid to the next of kin for their pain suffering mental anguish
and loss. The money damages also include payment of funeral expense, medical bills, ambulance, and
loss of financial support and services. We negotiate on the premise that a jury if necessary will calculate
money damages. Whatever money damages a jury awards the next of kin can never be enough. The value of a life is
inestimable. To accomplish the judicial requirement that a family receives money damages owed for pain and suffering the court
instructs the jury to write down on the verdict form a dollar amount to cover it. Money is the only substitute for the damages
suffered in these cases.
Whatever Amount the Insurance Company Pays is Not Enough
It's because of this second type of damages or subjective damages and for this reason alone we urge
the family not to hastily enter into early and likely inadequate insurance settlement.
We ask of you to allow us to fully investigate and develop your case so we can present you with the adequate information
to make an informed decision whether to accept or reject an insurance offer to settle the case.
Caution Against Haste Allow Preparation and Investigation
No attorney can tell you with any degree of reliability the value of a wrongful death case before he or she has
adequately and fully developed the case. We fully investigate to determine insurance coverage and the negligent cause of
the premature death. After we are fully satisfied with the investigation we present our finding to you so you have
the opportunity to make an informed decision as to any settlement offer.
Prudent to Wait to Settle Most of the Time but Not Always
The only wrongful death cases that should quickly settle are those where liability issues exist or insurance
coverage is limited.

Don't wait call Mr. Griffin
The time limit in Florida to bring legal action for a Wrongful Death is 2 years.
If you don't bring a claim in court within 2 years of the date of your loved one's death you are barred forever
from recovering money damages for your loss.
Once a law suit is filed the Florida Supreme Court estimates it should only take no longer than 18 months.
