What to Expect in a Florida Wrongful Death Lawsuit
Under Florida’s Wrongful Death Act, claimants can bring a wrongful death legal cause of action against an at-fault party within two years of the incident for damages including, but not limited to, medical expenditures, burial and funeral expenses, lost income and benefits, loss of household services, and lost companionship, support, and care; however, in cases where the victim’s injuries were not immediately fatal, surviving loved ones or beneficiaries of the victim’s estate can pursue a separate survivorship action, or personal injury claim, on behalf of the deceased had he or she survived the incident of negligence.
Claimants can recover damages both as a surviving family member and as a beneficiary of the estate, though the type and amount of pecuniary damages available are more significant for family members.
