What is Wrongful Death?

Wrongful death occurs when an individual’s death is caused by another person’s negligence or intentional act. This type of lawsuit can be filed by a surviving family member or representative of the estate on behalf of the deceased. In Florida, the statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death claim is two years from the date of the deceased person’s death.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

In Florida, a wrongful death lawsuit can be brought by the deceased person’s surviving spouse, children, parents, or any other dependents. If there is no surviving spouse, children, or parents, the personal representative of the decedent’s estate can file the claim. If the death is a result of medical malpractice or medical negligence, there are different laws that apply that narrow who may recover.

What Damages Can be Recovered?

We fight to recover compensation for: –

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Medical expenses prior to the deceased person’s passing
  • Loss of income or support
  • Loss of companionship and guidance
  • Pain and suffering of the surviving family members

The compensation recovered from a wrongful death lawsuit can help ease the financial burden that often accompanies the loss of a loved one, including funeral expenses and the loss of financial support.
