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 with ease.

The 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 the deceased

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.
