What Is a Wrongful Death Suit?
When an individual’s life is lost because of another person’s misconduct, criminal behavior, carelessness, or negligence, the surviving family members may sue for redress in a wrongful death suit. Family members may be dealing with the loss of companionship, income, and funeral expenses. These are all losses that can be listed in a wrongful death suit.
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Suit?
The state of Florida limits those who can file a wrongful death lawsuit. Florida Statutes § 768.21 covers the types of relationships permitted to file this suit. Immediate family members of the individual who died can file a lawsuit. It could include spouses, children, and other survivors financially dependent on the deceased.
Who Can Be Held Liable?
Various parties can be liable for wrongful death. You may have lost a loved one due to an accident on the job or a head injury from a slip-and-fall in the grocery store.
Potentially liable parties may include:
- Medical providers
- A reckless driver
- Transportation company
Anyone responsible for the conditions that caused the death of an individual proven to be due to negligence or reckless acts can be held liable in a wrongful death suit.
