Dealing with the loss of a loved one is a challenge none of us wish to experience. The pain, hurt, and heartache is only compounded when your loved one’s death may have resulted from the deliberate, reckless, or negligent acts of another. When the negligence of another causes the death of a loved one, Florida law may require the negligent party to compensate the family of the victim.

Our West Palm Beach personal injury lawyers at Fetterman & Associates, PA advocate on behalf of family members in this situation. We work in West Palm Beach, Port St. Lucie, and other local communities. To learn more about receiving compensation following the death of a loved one, send us a message online or call our team at 561-845-2510 today.

Causes of Wrongful Death in Florida

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 120,000 people die every year in the U.S. from unintentional injuries. Many of these injuries are due to the negligent acts of another. Some of the most common causes of accidental death in Florida include:

No lawsuit can bring your loved one back; however, compensation from a wrongful death claim may help to cover expenses and lost financial support due to your loved one’s death.

Florida Law: Who is Entitled to a Wrongful Death Claim?

Under Florida law, a wrongful death is an accidental death that has been caused by the negligence of another person. In addition to private individuals, businesses, corporations, hospitals, and other entities may also be liable for the death of another when that death was caused by employees of the entity or from products made or sold by the entity. Eligibility to recover for a wrongful death claim depends, in part, on your relationship with the deceased. Florida law requires that the deceased be a member of your family, such as a child or parent. For example, a child or spouse may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim for the death of a father or husband.

Likewise, parents may be able to file a wrongful death claim for the death of their child. In some instances, however, adult children may not be able to recover from the death of their parents, and parents may not be able to recover for the death of their adult children. Speak with a skilled Florida personal injury attorney to determine whether you are eligible to recover for the death of your loved one. If you successfully assert a wrongful death claim you may recover:

  • Medical and funeral expenses
  • Loss of earnings from the decedent
  • Loss of support and services
  • Loss of companionship and protection
  • Pain and suffering

Thank you for the best “first accident case” I’ve ever had… I was referred to Fetterman and Associates by a coworker from a previous job I had. Once my car was totaled out, I contacted them. Not only were they friendly and understanding - they took over the whole process which helped me. I was stressed and panicking about it all and thankfully, I didn’t have to worry as the process began. I had no idea what I was doing or going to do. I am glad I chose them because everything was a breeze for me. They are kind, respectful, responsive and great to work with!

The entire staff in the Fetterman office are available always to help. No matter what time of day I called or left a message I have always received a call back. I was made to feel like one of the family and treated with respect and dignity. The lawsuit was handled quickly, professionally, and with all bases covered. Whenever I had a question or needed help the staff was there to make sure that everything was done accurately. The positive attitude of the entire staff made me comfortable and assured me that all was done accurately.

Looking for a good team they are the way to go… I was referred from a family member to seek advice due to my accident. I was contacted back the same day I called over the weekend. I experienced great service from Fetterman and Associates and my lawyer did an awesome job with closing my case. I appreciate what they went beyond to help my case and was very professional. Thank you Mr Cavataro and Sylvia.
