What is wrongful death?

Wrongful death is a type of civil wrong, or tort, which is the result of someone else’s negligence that has unfortunately caused someone to pass away.

An example might be a severe auto accident where the injured person actually died. Another example can be when someone, through medical negligence dies, or any other scenario where someone is injured and then dies from those injuries due to someone else’s actions. Wrongful death is covered by a specific act in Florida law and there are very specific types of damages that you can recover for this tort.
