What Is “Wrongful Death” & How Does It Happen
In legal terms, a wrongful death is any death that occurs as a result of negligent, reckless, or unlawful actions. In other words, if a death could have and should have been prevented, it is usually considered wrongful.
Wrongful deaths occur as a result of all types of tragic accidents. These include:
- Car accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck/commercial vehicle accidents
- Amusement park accidents
- Aircraft accidents
- Bike accidents
- Boating accidents
- Construction accidents
- Cruise ship accidents
- Workplace accidents
Additionally, defective products and unsafe premises can lead to devastating accidents and wrongful deaths. At Greenberg, Stone & Urbano, we are committed to helping our clients seek the justice and recovery they deserve by holding liable parties accountable.
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Florida?
In Florida, the following individuals are allowed to seek recovery in a wrongful death suit:
- The surviving spouse of the deceased
- Any surviving children of the deceased
- Other dependents/immediate family members
Individuals are allowed to seek compensation when the deceased, had he or she survived, would have been able to pursue a personal injury lawsuit. Surviving family members may seek compensation for certain damages, including funeral/burial costs, medical expenses incurred prior to death, loss of companionship, loss of income/expected income, loss of inheritance, distress, and more.
