Surviving family members have special rights under Florida law to pursue financial compensation for a loss due to a wrongful death caused by negligent conduct. A financial settlement is very well the last thing your family may be considering at this time, however you must be aware in Florida, the law only allows two years to file a lawsuit in such an action.
The goal of a wrongful death lawsuit is to make a financial recovery for the costs, pain and suffering associated with the injury and resulting death of a spouse, child or close family member. These damages often found in a Wrongful Death lawsuit include but are not limited to:
