Under Florida Law, when the death of a person is caused by the wrongful act, or
negligence of any person, including those occurring on navigable waters, and the
event would have entitled the person killed to maintain an action and recover
damages if death had not ensued, the negligent person, persons or corporation
may be liable for damages as specified in the Florida Wrongful Death Act.
The action for Wrongful Death must be brought by the decedent's personal
representative, or as many people know it, the executor of the estate. The
personal representative or executor brings the claim on behalf of all the
decedent's survivors who are legally entitled to recover damages. The term
"survivor" is defined under the Wrongful Death Act, Chapter 768, Florida
Statutes. Survivors can include a spouse, parent, children and other lineal
descendants. Further, the estate itself has claims for medical and funeral
expenses and lost net accumulations of the person who died. The damages that may
be recovered are specified in the act. There are certain exceptions to the act
involving cases of medical malpractice.
The death of a beloved family member is always difficult, but when that death is
the result of a third party's negligence, that grief carries with it a great
many questions. What happened? Why did this happen? How will the family move
forward with a new reality — the loss of a loved one's companionship and
support? What is anything can we do? What should be our first step?
