You Have the Right to File a Wrongful Death Claim
In Florida, when an individual’s death is caused by the negligent or harmful acts of another, the surviving members of the estate have the right to file a wrongful death claim. A personal representative of the deceased’s estate must initiate this lawsuit on behalf of the qualifying relatives.
Family members who are eligible to file a wrongful death claim include:
- Any relatives who depended on the deceased for support
Depending on the relationship of the family member to the wrongful death victim and the circumstances of the case, there are several damages that can be awarded.
Compensable damages include:
- Medical and funeral expenses
- Mental and emotional suffering
- Lost wages, earning, and benefits
- Loss of companionship and protection
- Loss of future income
