- the loss of financial support they would have received from the deceased;
- the emotional pain and suffering resulting from the loss of companionship and guidance of the deceased; and
- punitive damages (if extreme negligence or intentional harm was the cause of death).
Is There a Deadline for Filing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in West Palm Beach?
Yes, in West Palm Beach, Florida, the general statute of limitations for wrongful death claims is two years from the date of the individual's death. However, per Florida Statute § 95.11(10) (2023), a wrongful death suit can be filed at any time if the death resulted from murder or manslaughter.
