COMMON WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIMS

Wrongful death claims can involve any case in which a person has been fatally injured or killed due to the intentional or negligent acts of another person or party. Surviving immediate family members would be considered beneficiaries eligible to file a wrongful death claim. Some of the most common wrongful death claims we see include:

  • Medical misdiagnosis
  • Medical errors
  • Wrong Prescription

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Work-related injuries
  • Products liability claims
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Slip and fall fatalities

DAMAGES IN FLORIDA WRONGFUL DEATH CASES

The state of Florida there is a limit to the amount of damages claimed that do not have a direct financial impact on beneficiaries, for example loss of companionship. That pain and suffering limit is $1 million for cases where medical practitioners are named as the defendants. For non-medical malpractice cases, that limit is raised to $1.5 million.

On the other hand, the amount of punitive damages that can be claimed is not capped by the state of Florida. Punitive damages are ordered by the court to make an example of or to discourage parties from continuing the behavior that caused the wrongful death.

Economic damages in a wrongful death claim in Florida may include:

  • Medical expenses from the time of injury until death
  • Support services from time of injury until death
  • Funeral expenses
  • Victim’s expected future earnings (from age of death to retirement)
  • Work-related medical benefits
  • Pension plan
  • Anything financial impact caused by the victim’s death
