What is a wrongful death claim?

A wrongful death claim seeks financial damages for surviving family members. Wrongful death is legally defined as “the negligent, willful, or wrongful act, neglect, omission, or default of another.” If someone’s negligence led to the death of another person, the responsible party can be sued for compensation. Some scenarios that could lead to wrongful death include car accidents, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, defective products, and slip and fall fatalities.

To win a wrongful death claim in Florida, the plaintiff must prove:

  • The defendant owed a duty of care to the deceased.
  • The defendant breached that duty.
  • The defendant’s breach caused the deceased’s death.
  • The death resulted in quantifiable damages to the deceased’s estate and beneficiaries.

A wrongful death claim is a civil lawsuit that seeks financial compensation and has no bearing on a criminal lawsuit. A defendant found not guilty in criminal court could be found responsible in civil court and will have to pay damages.
