If you are considering filing a wrongful death lawsuit, you will need to open a probate. The personal representative of the estate will be responsible for selecting the personal injury law firm to handle the wrongful death case and later on to collect and distribute any compensation received from the responsible party. Hiring an experienced Florida probate attorney upfront can help ensure maximum success of your case, often at no additional cost to the client.
Our firm will assist you in selecting the appropriate personal injury lawyer and firm, and will act as supervisor and liaison to that firm to ensure prompt action and unfettered access. We will monitor the status of the case and keep you up to date on what is happening with your case from beginning to end. In many cases, we will be able to provide these services to you and your family at no additional cost.
When the case is resolved, we can craft a plan for distribution of the compensation. If minor children are the beneficiaries, it may be best to put the money into a trust fund until they are older or make use of annuities to provide a long-term income stream. Similarly, if the beneficiary is disabled, he or she will lose eligibility for government benefits if the money is paid in one lump sum. Mr. Kitroser will sit down with you to discuss all the estate planning aspects of the case so you can make informed decisions about how to manage the compensation settlement or award.
