When the negligent actions of another result in the loss of a life, it is considered a wrongful death. Under Florida law, the surviving family members of the deceased may be entitled to recover compensation for their damages. Typically, only the spouse and children of the deceased may file a wrongful death claim. However, in situations where the deceased did not leave a spouse or children behind, the parents or siblings may be entitled to file a claim as well.
A wrongful death can occur due to just about any type of personal injury. Some of the most common causes include:
- Car, Motorcycle, Truck and Other Motor Vehicle Accidents
- Medical Malpractice
- Accidents on the Property of Another
- Defective Products
- Construction Accidents
- Nursing Home Abuse
- Workplace Accidents
