Wrongful Death Cases
The loss of a loved one is traumatic and can have devastating financial consequences for a family.
Under Florida law, certain family members may recover damages when they have lost a loved one as a result of negligence, neglect, or abuse. Florida’s law, however, restricts such claims to a limited timeframe — a timeframe that is much shorter than what is allowed for most other types of claims. Therefore, it is important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible if you suspect negligence in causing the wrongful death of a family member. Nursing home negligence lawyer James Keim fights to hold nursing homes and assisted living facilities accountable for the wrongful deaths they cause.

Drowning & Aquatic Injuries
Statistically, there are on average over 2,000 accidental drowning deaths in the United States each year. Many of these unfortunate tragedies are the result of negligence.
In cases of near-drowning and the deprivation of oxygen for a prolonged period of time, the victim is often left with brain damage and paralysis, leading to years of rehabilitation and assistance with their activities of daily living.
