Who Can Sue for Wrongful Death in Florida

Florida’s Wrongful Death Act provides that all survivors of the deceased shall have a right to compensation following a death caused by negligence. This includes much of the immediate family, individuals relying on the deceased, and more, and can help you recover in this time of tragedy.

What Can Be Recovered in a Wrongful Death Case?

  • Each survivor is entitled to the value of both past and future loss of support and services from the deceased, based on the deceased's probable net income and the life expectancy of the deceased and the survivor.
  • The spouse is also entitled to compensation for loss of companionship and for mental pain and suffering.
  • The parents of a minor child are entitled to compensation for mental pain and suffering.
  • The parents of an adult child can receive compensation for mental pain and suffering if there are no other survivors.
  • Any survivor who has paid medical or funeral expenses on behalf of the deceased may recover them.
  • The estate of the deceased may recover lost earnings from the date of injury to the date of death and any medical or funeral expenses due. The estate may also recover the savings the deceased would have accumulated had they lived, provided the deceased had a spouse or children.
