Causes of Wrongful Death in Florida

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 120,000 people die every year in the U.S. from unintentional injuries. Many of these injuries are due to the negligent acts of another.

Some of the most common causes of accidental death in Florida include:

  • Car accidents
  • Accidents involving large trucks
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Accidents involving public transportation
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Accidents due to defective products or equipment

No lawsuit can bring your loved one back; however, compensation from a wrongful death claim may help to cover expenses and lost financial support due to your loved one’s death.

Florida Law: Who is Entitled to a Wrongful Death Claim?

Under Florida law, a wrongful death is an accidental death that has been caused by the negligence of another person.

In addition to private individuals, businesses, corporations, hospitals, and other entities may also be liable for the death of another when that death was caused by employees of the entity or from products made or sold by the entity.

Eligibility to recover for a wrongful death claim depends, in part, on your relationship with the deceased. Florida law requires that the deceased be a member of your family, such as a child or parent.

For example, a child or spouse may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim for the death of a father or husband. Likewise, parents may be able to file a wrongful death claim for the death of their child.

In some instances, however, adult children may not be able to recover for the death of their parent, and parents may not be able to recover for the death of their adult children. Speak with a skilled Florida personal injury attorney to determine whether you are eligible to recover for the death of your loved one.

If you successfully assert a wrongful death claim you may recover:

  • Medical and funeral expenses
  • Loss of earnings from the decedent
  • Loss of support and services
  • Loss of companionship and protection
  • Pain and suffering
