Who Can Bring A Wrongful Death Suit In The State Of Florida?

A wrongful death occurs when a person dies as a result of another individual’s negligence.

Under the jurisdiction of many states, the wrongful death suit benefits the deceased individual’s children, parents, or spouse. However, under the Florida Wrongful Death Act, these surviving family members are not automatically beneficiaries of the claim. Any given case has unique details that may affect the specifics of a wrongful death lawsuit.  Anyone considering a wrongful death lawsuit should consult a qualified Broward County Wrongful Death Attorney.
