John 11:25 - “Jesus said unto her, ‘I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.’“

While the loss of life is always tragic, when a death is preventable and due to the negligence, carelessness, or actions of another, it is especially difficult to bear. Every family must go through the grieving process and adjust to their loved one no longer being around.

Florida Law allows for the immediate family members to seek compensation and damages against the at fault party for the loss of life.

Florida law (statute §768.19) states that when someone’s death is “caused by the wrongful act, negligence, default, or breach of contract” of another person, the estate of the deceased person may bring a civil lawsuit in Florida’s courts against the responsible party.

When a wrongful death happens and the family of the deceased person wishes to file a legal claim against the responsible party, the State of Florida requires the Personal Representative of the deceased person’s estate to initiate the claim. If a Personal Representative is not named in the deceased person’s will or estate plan, one will be appointed by the Court at the time a wrongful death claim is prepared to be filed.

Florida law also dictates which specific family members are allowed to be listed as survivors who are allowed to benefit from a wrongful death case. These include:

Family members may seek the following types of compensation and damages:

If your loved one was the victim of a wrongful death, Your Christian Law Firm, Dean Burnetti Law will seek justice for your loved on while ensuring your are treated with the dignity and respect that you deserve.
