Wrongful Death Explained by the Experts

Wrongful death is defined as death that is caused by the negligence or disregard of another. There are many complex laws that surround situations of personal injury, including wrongful death. To win a case like this, your attorney must be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the deceased did die as a result of someone’s omissions or actions.

A person may fall victim to wrongful death as a result of an automobile accident, medical malpractice situation, or even product defect. The family of the deceased is often left in shock, with no clear sense of what to do or who to consult. Before dealing with tax collectors, insurance companies, and hospital administrators, consult the team who can help you navigate the complex process of recovery.

Who Can Collect Wrongful Death Damages?

Under Florida law, family members of wrongful death victims are eligible to collect economic damages for medical and funeral expenses. Spouses, children, and parents may even be able to recover non-economic damages for loss of companionship or emotional suffering. In medical malpractice cases involving the death of a parent, only children under the age of 25 or children who were financially dependent on the victim qualify for compensation.
