Wrongful Death Legal Action: What To Know
To have a successful wrongful death lawsuit, a plaintiff must prove to the court that another party’s negligence caused an individual’s death. Generally, the value of a wrongful death claim involves calculating the decedent’s income at the time of their death, plus the income they would have generated had they lived. Other common damages include:
- Hospital bills
- Automotive repairs
- Funeral costs
- Loss of income
- Loss of consortium
- Pain and suffering
In Florida, only the personal representative of a deceased person can file a wrongful death lawsuit. The statute of limitations on these claims is two years.

The other party’s insurance company will almost certainly offer much less compensation than you deserve. Fortunately, our law firm has board-certified trial attorneys who have a record of proven successes handling complex wrongful death and other personal injury claims. If we take your case, we prepare as if it is destined for trial.
