What Is Wrongful Death?

“Wrongful death” refers to a situation where someone dies in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence. A person or an organization (such as a company) can be found negligent and held liable for someone’s death. For example, if a negligent driver causes a crash that kills a passenger in another car, the negligent driver may be liable for the passenger’s wrongful death.

A wrongful death accident does not have to immediately kill someone. If a victim suffers serious injuries that later result in death, their loved ones still may have a wrongful death claim against the negligent party. If you are not sure whether your family has a case, our Orlando wrongful death attorney can assess your situation and offer personalized advice.

When someone unexpectedly passes away, they leave behind many friends, family members, and other loved ones. Not just anyone has the right to pursue a wrongful death claim in Florida, however.

Only the deceased’s personal representative can file a lawsuit on behalf of surviving family members. The personal representative will be named in the deceased’s estate plan or appointed by a probate court. State law limits also who can recover damages.

In Florida, you can recover damages through a wrongful death lawsuit if you are the deceased’s:
