When Can You File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Florida?

The state of Florida defines “wrongful death” as any death that occurs as a result of the negligent or wrongful conduct of another person or party. Generally speaking, if the person who died (the “decedent”) would have had grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit had they survived, the decedent’s estate has the right to file a wrongful death claim.
The personal representative of the decedent’s estate may file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the decedent’s surviving dependents, heirs, and beneficiaries, which often includes spouses, children, parents, and other family members.

Damages in Wrongful Death Claims

Florida law allows surviving family members and dependents to recover damages in wrongful death actions. These damages may include:

How Long Do You Have to File a Wrongful Death Action?

The time to file a wrongful death lawsuit in the state of Florida is short—you only have two years to file your claim for damages. If the two-year statute of limitations has expired, the personal representative of the decedent’s estate will be barred from bringing legal action and the case will be dismissed by the court.
If you need help filing a wrongful death case in Starke, or if you have questions about who can file a claim, reach out to the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A. right away. The sooner we can begin gathering evidence and building your case, the better.
