Understanding the West Palm Beach Wrongful Death Claims Process

Much of the legal proceedings involved in a wrongful death lawsuit occur outside of the courtroom, where extensive documentation is meticulously researched and crafted to include the critical elements that determine whether a lawsuit is dismissed or significantly weakened.

Understanding the pre-trial process in a wrongful death lawsuit can ultimately benefit the claimant as most cases are resolved through negotiated settlements before trial.

There are several stages to the claims process:

  • Pre-trial investigation and research
  • Legal research
  • Pre-lawsuit negotiations with insurance companies
  • Wrongful death lawsuit commencement
  • Discovery process, including requests for admission, interrogatories, depositions, and requests for production of documents
  • Handling motions for summary judgement
  • Trial preparation

Initiating a Wrongful Death Claim in West Palm Beach

Under Florida’s Wrongful Death Act, there are two types of plaintiffs who can commence a wrongful death lawsuit: (1) the descendant’s estate and (2) his/her surviving family members.

While a plaintiff can be entitled to recover both as a beneficiary of the estate and a survivor, the types and amount of compensation available to survivors are usually much more significant than damages recoverable by the descendant’s estate. Survivor benefits essentially compensate the designated family members for their personal losses suffered because of the death of a loved one. The categories of damages that might be sought by survivors include, but are not limited to:

  • Mental pain and suffering
  • Lost protection and support
  • Lost services and support
  • Child’s loss of guidance, instruction, and companionship
  • Medical bills, funeral costs, and burial expenses (if paid for by a survivor)
