Wrongful death lawsuits vindicate family members’ rights
When a victim perishes at the hands of a negligent party in an automobile accident, premises liability incident, or other event, the burden of meeting the victim’s accident-related costs will fall on their family to pay. In addition, the family has lost the support and companionship of the victim, and may face severe economic hardship if the victim was a breadwinner. To address these injustices, Florida law allows family members of a deceased victim to bring a wrongful death claim against a party whose negligence or wrongful act caused the death.
A wrongful death claim is exactly what it sounds like. It is a lawsuit that alleges a person died due to the negligence, recklessness, or otherwise wrongful conduct of another party or parties. Not all people related to victims will be granted the right to sue; generally those with the right are closely related to the victim, such as parents, children, and spouses. Attorneys who include wrongful death law in their personal injury and victim advocacy practices can discuss the details of this claim with their clients.
