How to File a Wrongful Death Claim
A wrongful death lawsuit can be filed when an individual dies as the result
of the negligence or wrongful act of another. This type of lawsuit allows
the surviving close family members of the deceased to collect monetary
damages for their loved one's untimely death. Though the process can be
difficult to navigate, a wrongful death lawyer can walk you through it
Florida Wrongful Death Act enables the statutory survivors of the deceased individual to seek compensation
for their loss. Compensation may include funeral and burial expenses,
hospital bills, lost wages the deceased would have made had they lived,
and a sum of money to cover emotional pain suffered by the remaining family members.
The survivors of the deceased who are considered eligible includes:
- The spouse
- Children (biological, adopted, and step)
- Parents, and/or
- Any other relatives who were financially and/or emotionally dependent on
However, there is a statute of limitations for wrongful death suits, meaning
you only have a limited amount of time to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit,
so it is best to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. The Florida statute
of limitations for wrongful death is two years from the date of death.
