The Law Offices of Jason Turchin recently settled a wrongful death case for more than $4,000,000.00 on behalf of the family of a young man who was struck and killed by a hit and run driver. The young man was on the street when, according to witnesses, he was struck by a vehicle and thrown through the air. He was in a coma and taken off life-support a few days later.
Florida’s complex Florida wrongful death law sets forth when a victim’s family may have a claim, who may bring the claim, and what damages each family member may be entitled to recover.
