Damages Recoverable in a Wrongful Death Insurance Claim or Lawsuit
It may be possible to recover compensation based on your loved one’s injuries and death through an insurance claim or civil lawsuit. We know that no amount of money will ever make up for losing your beloved family member. However, holding the at-fault parties responsible and recovering compensation to help your family make ends meet can help you grieve without financial worries.
Each case is different, but Florida Statutes § 768.21 generally permits wrongful death damages that include:
- Medical bills
- Funeral and burial costs
- The decedent’s conscious pain and suffering
- Loss of income provided by the deceased party
- Loss of services previously provided by the deceased
- Loss of parental training and guidance for any minor children
- Loss of society and companionship for their spouse
- Other intangible losses, depending on the relationship to the surviving family member

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Case in Florida?
Florida has well-defined wrongful death laws that our attorneys understand and know how to navigate. Under Florida Statutes § 768.19, the personal representative of a decedent can take legal action against a negligent party if the victim could have filed a personal injury lawsuit if they had survived.
The personal representative is either the party named as the executor of the decedent’s will, the administrator of their estate plan, or the party the court appointed to manage their probate process after their death. This person is often a spouse, adult child, or parent, but it could be another party. The personal representative is acting on behalf of the estate, seeking compensation for heirs, who may be:
- The surviving spouse
- Minor and/or adult children
- Surviving parents
- Other immediate family members and loved ones
We can help you understand who can represent the family and who may be eligible to recover compensation. We can also discuss the types of damages you may be able to recover, although the value of your case will be unknown until we can investigate the case and determine the losses and expenses incurred.
Proving Negligence in a Wrongful Death Case
Like we would in any negligence accident case, we have to prove that the accused party acted carelessly and caused the incident and injuries that led to your loved one’s death. Proving negligence requires us to collect evidence to demonstrate:
- The accused party owed your loved one a duty of care.
- They breached this duty of care.
- This breach caused the accident or incident.
- Your loved one suffered the injuries that led to their death.
For example, a driver has a legal responsibility to follow all traffic laws. When they violate a law, it can cause a serious accident, which can lead to fatal injuries. We would use the report filed by police, witness statements, accident reconstruction, and other evidence to tell the story of what happened and demand just compensation for our client.

How Long do You Have to Sue the Liable Parties?
Under Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d), families who lost a loved one due to negligence only have up to two years to sue the other party. While an out-of-court settlement during this period is possible, we sometimes have to sue on behalf of our clients. For this reason, it is important that we protect their right.
Filing a lawsuit may also be necessary when there is debate about liability or other basic facts of the case. Our attorneys can assess whether this may be necessary to recover compensation for you and your family.
