After losing a loved one, some Florida residents may opt out of filing a wrongful death case to recover financial compensation. To be sure, many survivors may not think that they are eligible to recover money for their losses, or they may not believe the damages to be so excessive that a legal claim is necessary.
In reality, however, surviving spouses or family members may have a viable wrongful death claim if it can be demonstrated that another party was even partially liable for the death. This is often the case in the following types of accidents:
- Car, motorcycle, bicycle, and pedestrian accidents;
- Construction accidents;
- Accidents that occur at a store or on someone else's property;
- Boat accidents; and
- Jet-Ski accidents.
Furthermore, compensation may also be available if the decedent was killed as a result of another party's intentional acts, such as in the case of assault.
And often the compensation awarded to survivors in a wrongful death case is necessary to cover the costs that arise in the aftermath of the death. To be sure, survivors may be asked to pay for any medical bills incurred by the decedent before death, as well as for burial expenses and funeral costs.
Finally, Florida law also recognizes the damages associated with losing a spouse or a parent. As such, a wrongful death case allows for the recovery of loss of consortium and companionship for surviving spouses, as well as loss of parental guidance and instruction for surviving children.An Attorney Can Assist You in Filing a Successful Wrongful Death Claim
