Navigating Wrongful Death Claims
Wrongful death is a civil action. This means that it is separate from criminal charges brought for intentional or unintentional acts that caused a death. Under Florida law, survivors such as the decedent's spouse, children, parents, and other blood relatives, that were partly or wholly dependent on the decedent for financial support may have a "right of action" for wrongful death.
The lawsuit must prove, however, that the acts or omissions by the defendant were the proximate cause of death. Common causes of wrongful death claims include but are not limited to:
Automobile & Motorcycle Accidents
Construction Site Accidents
And Even Criminal Acts
In a Wrongful Death lawsuit, you may be able to recover expenses for damages, such as:
Medical and Funeral Expenses
Loss of Income and Family Support
Loss of Companionship
Children’s Loss of Guidance or Supervision
Due to the statute of limitations to file suit for a wrongful death claim, which in Florida is two years from the date the cause of wrongful death is suspected or confirmed, it is important to Contact Us Immediately.
