A wrongful death claim can be complicated and particular, which is why it is so important to have an experienced Florida wrongful death attorney on your side. As the survivor of a loved one, you can file a wrongful death lawsuit for the recovery of the following three kinds of damages:
1) The loss of the love, companionship, comfort, affection, society, solace, moral support, and (if a spouse is a claimant) consortium of the decedent;
2) The value of the household services the decedent would have provided in the future, if any, and
3) The value of the financial support which the claimant would have received from the decedent but for the death.
After a loved one has passed away, there are only certain people who may file a wrongful death claim. Some include the surviving spouse, children, and surviving issue of deceased children of the decedent.
