What is wrongful death?

Florida law allows you to file a lawsuit for wrongful death under certain circumstances. A wrongful death lawsuit can be based on:

  • A wrongful act — A wrongful act typically refers to an action that most people would regard as criminal behavior. Assaults, shootings, reckless behavior and drunken driving may qualify as wrongful acts.
  • Negligence — Negligence occurs when a person has a duty to follow a standard of care, and their failure to live up to that duty results in the injury or death of another person. A duty can apply to countless scenarios, ranging from a mechanic’s duty to customers to a doctor’s responsibility for a patient’s well-being, a failure of which can lead to a medical malpractice action.
  • Breach of contract or warranty —̶ Florida law allows a wrongful death suit to be brought for a loss resulting from a breach of contract or warranty. This primarily applies to instances in which a defective product resulted in a fatal accident.

If your loved one died as a result of an accident, a defective product or another person’s criminal acts, you may be able recover for your loss through a civil lawsuit.

Helping families after a fatal accident

Under Florida law, the personal representative of an estate can bring an action for wrongful death following the passing of a family member in a car accident. Family members may recover for:

  • Lost support and services, including the decedent’s probable net income
  • Medical or funeral expenses
  • Loss of companionship and protection
  • Mental pain and suffering

Florida’s statute of limitations is important

A statute of limitations is an important deadline for lawsuits. If you wait too long to file a lawsuit, you can be barred from pursuing the case in court and recovering damages. In Florida, different claims have different limitations; the statute requires that a lawsuit for wrongful death be filed within two years of the victim’s passing. If you recently lost a loved one, it is important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible to preserve your legal rights.
