Wrongful Death

A wrongful death case is fundamentally different than a personal injury case, whereas personal injury is based on common law, a wrongful death claim is based on statutory law. And a Florida wrongful death case must be brought pursuant to Florida's Wrongful Death Act. 

​​A wrongful death case can only be brought on behalf of the decedent's estate.

Pursuing a wrongful death claim typically involves the opening of an estate in probate court and having a personal representative appointed by the probable court to act on behalf of the decedent's estate.

The personal representative is under a duty act in the best interest of all statutory survivors.
