Under Florida law, a wrongful death claim may be raised in circumstances where the negligent actions of another result in the death of a family member. Wrongful death lawsuits may arise as a result of
- Car or truck accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Nursing Home Negligence
- Defective or unsafe products
- Drunk driving
- Intentional violent acts such as murder
Under the Florida Wrongful Death Act, wrongful death lawsuits may be brought by certain close relatives of a person who was injured and died as a result of a wrongful act. Those individuals entitled to bring a wrongful death lawsuit are called “survivors” and include the spouse, children and parents of the deceased, as well as any other blood relatives who depended on the deceased for support or services.Compensation for Loss
The Florida Wrongful Death Act also comprehensively governs the compensation that survivors can receive for the loss of their loved ones. All survivors are allowed to recover the value of lost support and services from the date of the deceased’s injury to his or her death, plus future loss of support and services. The actual evaluation and determination of total loss is a complicated process and it is best to consult an attorney experienced in wrongful death lawsuits. Economists are frequently consulted on these matters to reach an accurate and fair monetary figure.
Additionally, a surviving spouse may is also entitled to compensation for the loss of companionship and protection and mental pain and suffering that resulted from the loss of the deceased. Similarly, children of the deceased are entitled to compensation for lost parental companionship, instruction and guidance, and for mental pain and suffering.Seeking Compensation For Your Loss
