Wrongful Death Cases
According to civil law in Florida, family members of the deceased have the right to file a wrongful death claim to seek monetary damages for their loss of the financial and emotional support of their loved one if the death has been caused by someone’s negligent, reckless, or intentional act.
To prove that wrongful death has occurred, we have to show that the person or persons being sued had a duty of care to the person who died and that his or her behavior did not meet that standard of care. We also have to show that the person or persons’ negligent, reckless, or intentional actions caused the death.
Wrongful Death Compensation
The amount of financial compensation you can be awarded in a wrongful death case depends on several factors. Your relationship to the person who suffered the wrongful death is the first consideration. Next is the income that would have been available to you had the deceased family member lived. The approximate amount it would take to replace the deceased family member’s services is another factor, as is his or her life expectancy and the life expectancy of those claiming wrongful death damages.
All close family members can potentially be awarded compensation for the loss of the loved one’s support and services dating back to the day of the injury, with interest, and extending from the date of death into the future. In cases where a defendant was extremely negligent or reckless, or his intentional actions resulted in the death of your loved one, the court may also award punitive damages.
