According to Florida state law, spouses, children, and other dependents or beneficiaries may have the legal right to seek compensation by filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Compensation may cover out-of-pocket costs such as medical and funeral expenses, loss of income, as well as emotional pain and suffering.
All wrongful death laws have a statute of limitations that limits the period in which survivors can exercise their rights. The statute of limitations begins when the person dies: a wrongful death lawsuit must be filed within the time period specified in order to be considered a valid claim.
