Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Florida?

Under Florida’s wrongful death statute, the personal representative can take legal action in a wrongful death case. They can include but no limited to:

  • Surviving spouse
  • Minor or adult children
  • Parents
  • Other family members who financially depended on the decedent

Florida’s statute of limitations declares that the state’s residents must file a wrongful death claim within two years of the decedent’s passing.

What Types of Compensation Can Families Hope to Recover in Wrongful Death Cases?

While every wrongful death case is different, Florida courts typically award compensation for:

  • The decedent’s medical treatment if the death didn’t occur immediately (e.g., ER care, surgery, and hospitalization costs)
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • The family’s economic losses (i.e., the value of the financial support the decedent would have provided, both by earned wages and through services like childcare, housework, and transportation)
  • Non-monetary losses like pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and loss of consortium
  • Punitive damages in cases where the at-fault party acted with flagrant negligence or recklessness (e.g., a drunk driver or an employer who neglected to follow workplace safety regulations)
