There are several aspects of a wrongful death lawsuit that our attorneys consider. First, we have to establish that the death occurred due to the negligence or wrongful act of at least one party, but often there are several parties involved in these cases.
There are also specific requirements of Florida courts as to who can file these types of wrongful death lawsuits. This involves a personal representative for the deceased, who may be indicated a Will or through the courts, to file the case. This representative is responsible to the other surviving family members qualifying for the case under the law.
