Florida Wrongful Death Law Offers Hope for Bereaved Families
In cases of death caused by negligence or other wrongful actions, Florida law allows the personal representative of the estate to file a wrongful death claim against the responsible party on behalf of the estate and for the benefit of surviving family members. Beneficiaries of a wrongful death settlement can include a surviving spouse, children or parents, as well as siblings or other blood relatives who were at least partially dependent on the deceased for financial support. A wrongful death settlement or judgment can be awarded to help with the many financial and emotional losses experienced by the family, including:
- Final medical expenses
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Services and support the deceased would have provided
- Future earnings of the deceased
- Companionship and protection of a spouse
- Parental guidance
- Parents who lost a child can also receive compensation for their mental and emotional pain and suffering.
