What is wrongful death?
Wrongful death is a claim against a person or company whose negligence results in death of a person. In the state of Florida, wrongful death cases are controlled by Chapter 768, which states that a lawsuit must be filed within 2 years of the person’s death. There are many types of situations that may involve a wrongful death, including: brain injuries due an accident or birth trauma; defective products; medical errors or neglect; automobile or commercial vehicle accident; delayed medical treatment or care; negligent security or premises liability; slip and falls; drowning; boating accidents; and workplace accidents. A wrongful death claim can be made by the spouse, parents, or children of the deceased.
