Losing a loved one can be tragic. Wrongful Death is where a death occurs due to the negligence or misconduct of another. Common causes of wrongful death include accidents by car, motorcycle, semi-truck or medical malpractice.
Under Florida law, beneficiaries of the estate may be able to recover monetary damages if one dies because of the negligence of another. In Florida, beneficiaries of the estate may be entitled to the following types of damages:
- Grief, sorrow, mental anguish, loss of society, companionship, comfort and guidance.
- Expected loss of income from the decedent, reasonably expected loss of services, protection, care, and assistance which the decedent may have provided.
- Expenses for the care, treatment and hospitalization of the decedent from the injury that resulted in death, and reasonable funeral expenses.
