In Florida, you can sue for either negligently or intentionally causing a death. Negligent wrongful death cases include deaths resulting from motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, defective products or any other negligence. You can bring a lawsuit even if the person who caused your loved one’s death was already criminally prosecuted.
Family Members Can Recover Money In Wrongful Death Cases
Florida law allows for surviving dependents or relatives to obtain money damages resulting from another person’s actions or inaction. Damages that may be recoverable include:
- Lost earnings: The lost earnings from the date of the injury and into the future.
- Lost net accumulation: Expected net business income or salary (including pensions) that the deceased would have earned over his or her normal life expectancy.
- Medical or funeral expenses: The costs incurred for medical bills and burial/cremation expenses.
- Loss of companionship and protection: Minor children can recover for loss of parental guidance and instruction. Spouses may recover damages for the loss of their best friend and companion.
- Mental pain and suffering: This includes both physical and mental pain, anxiety, and stress that resulted from the death.
- Lost support and services: This includes both past and future loss of support and services that unreasonably would have been provided by the decedent.
