The Most Common Types of Wrongful Death Cases

What is a Wrongful Death Claim?

A wrongful death claim is a legal action filed against a defendant by the survivors of an individual killed as a result of a negligent, reckless, or intentional conduct of another person, company, or entity.

Damages that surviving family members may receive in wrongful death cases include:

  • The value of support and services the deceased person had provided to the surviving family member
  • Loss of companionship, guidance, and protection provided by the deceased person
  • Mental and emotional pain due to the loss of a child
  • Medical or funeral expenses any surviving family member has paid for the deceased person

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

Wrongful death claims allow the estate or those close to a deceased person to file a lawsuit against the party who is legally liable for the death. Personal representative claims on behalf of individual survivors can include the spouse, children, parents, or estate depending upon the particular circumstances of each situation. 

It is crucial to hire a lawyer as soon as possible because the Florida wrongful death statute of limitations limits the time in which you can file a lawsuit. Because of the complexities of a death case, these cases should be handled by an experienced Florida wrongful death attorney who is familiar with the Florida Wrongful Death Statute.
