Recover Losses with a Wrongful Death Claim
If the death of your loved one was the result of a fatal traffic accident, negligent behavior or an illegal act, you can seek compensation through a wrongful death claim. This provides an option to ease the financial stress of the people who depended on that person.
You can recover damages for:
- Emotional pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium and companionship
- Loss of your loved one’s support
- Your loved one’s lost wages and benefits
- Expenses for medical bills and funeral costs
Florida law specifies that only the personal representative of the deceased can file a wrongful death claim. However, all dependent parties can recover losses. This includes spouses, children, parents and other family members. You only have two years to file a claim, so it is important to act quickly.
