MEYERS & STANLEY Prosecute Wrongful Death Cases for Floridians

Negligent individuals and organizations must be held responsible when they cause a person's death. Al & Steve are fierce advocates for Floridians who have lost loved ones in tragic accidents or due to the reckless actions of another. We vigorously pursue the maximum compensation possible — not only to help the family move forward, but also to make sure that those responsible for their loss are held accountable. Justice requires that the responsible party pays for the enormous economic losses that the death causes to survivors in the future.


The legally appointed personal representative of the deceased's estate brings a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of “survivors” when the death was a direct result of negligent, reckless, or intentional actions. However, all “survivors” of the decedent have valid claims that are part of the wrongful death lawsuit. We represent any or all survivors and personal representatives of those killed by the negligent and reckless conduct of others. Al and Steve build and prove strong wrongful death cases arising from:

  • Auto accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Defective products
  • Lack of proper security
  • Medical malpractice
  • Birth injuries
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect
  • Slips and falls on various properties
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Assaults
  • Murder/homicide on commercial properties
  • Aviation accidents
  • Construction accidents

Our 30+ years of experience and thorough understanding of Florida wrongful death laws enables us to skillfully navigate your case from start to finish.

meyers & stanley obtain full recovery in death cases

Prompt action is absolutely critical to obtaining adequate damages after the death of a family member. Steve and Al are well acquainted with the courtroom tactics the opposition uses to attempt to limit their financial responsibility. We marshal the evidence promptly and carefully anticipate the legal counter-attacks that are sure to follow. We will demonstrate that you deserve compensation for:

  • Medical costs
  • Funeral expenses
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of love, affection and companionship
  • Loss of protection and guidance
  • Benefits lost due to the victim’s death, including medical insurance
  • Loss of services
  • Anticipated net accumulations

The damages awarded in a wrongful death lawsuit depend upon your relationship with the deceased. To prove important factors related to your individual damages, we frequently retain private investigators and other experts to establish liability and the magnitude of your emotion and financial losses. We also obtain testimonials from knowledgeable witnesses, collect and preserve forensic evidence, and take numerous other strategic measures to prevail.

Meyers & Stanley aggressively seek comprehensive settlements before litigation to protect the family from undue upset and emotional turmoil. However, if the other side fails to offer the recovery you deserve, Al and Steve will be fierce advocates in litigation.


Meyers & Stanley provide experienced, diligent representation for Floridians dealing with the devastation of a loved one’s wrongful death. If you have lost a family member due to someone’s negligent or reckless actions, we will see the justice and recovery you deserve.
