If you have lost a loved one due to someone else’s actions or negligence, you and the other surviving family members are faced with emotional trauma and financial stress.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Florida?
According to the Florida Statutes section 768.20 the person eligible to file a wrongful death claim is personal representative of the deceased’s estate. If a personal representative of the estate has not been appointed, the court can do so. All wrongful death claims are filed on behalf of the spouse, children, or parents of the deceased, regardless if the personal representative of the estate is a relative of the deceased.
A claim may also be filed on behalf of other blood relatives or adoptive siblings if they were partly or wholly dependent on the deceased. Don’t hesitate to speak to an attorney as soon as possible if you are interested in filing a claim. The statute of limitations to file a wrongful death claim in Florida is four years. This means you have four years from the date of your loved one’s passing to file a claim or you may lose your right to do so.
Wrongful Death Claims in Florida
After losing a loved one to someone else’s negligence, you have the right to seek compensation by filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Pursuing compensation provides grieving family members with a sense of justice and helps to relieve their financial burden, allowing them to heal and move forward.
The amount of compensation you receive in a wrongful death claim can vary and depends on the details of the case. For example, if the victim was responsible for financially supporting the family, surviving loved ones may receive more compensation. Wrongful death compensation can cover medical bills before the person’s death, funeral expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering, and emotional trauma.
