Only a Qualifying Representative Can File a Wrongful Death Action
In Florida, only qualifying representatives are able to file a wrongful death claim on behalf of a decedent.
Under Florida Statute §768.21, the following people can pursue this type of legal action:
- The decedent’s surviving spouse
- The children of the decedent
- The decedent’s parents
- A personal representative of the decedent’s estate
You are not given an unlimited time to file a wrongful death claim. Under Florida Statute §95.11, you have two years from the date of your loved one’s passing to pursue a civil action. For this reason, we encourage you to reach out to a Melbourne wrongful death lawyer as soon as you can. If you do not act within the state’s statute of limitations, you will be barred from filing a lawsuit against the negligent party.
