Learn About Wrongful Death Benefits That May Be Available To You
Under Florida wrongful death laws, a personal representative may bring a wrongful death claim on behalf of the deceased. The surviving spouse may be entitled to compensation for the loss of companionship and protection, as well as for mental pain and suffering. Minor children may recover compensation for the loss of parental companionship, instruction and guidance, as well as for their own mental pain and suffering.
If a child has died, the child’s parents may be compensated for the resulting mental pain and suffering. All of these various types of damages are awarded in addition to the compensation for the loss of support and services both now and in the future.
In addition to these individual claims, the deceased person’s estate is entitled to be compensated for the loss of earnings now and for those earnings and wealth the individual would have accumulated in the future. The estate can also recover additional medical and funeral expenses not paid to the loved one’s surviving family members.
