What is Wrongful Death?

Under Florida Statute 768.19, wrongful death is a wrongful act, negligence, breach, or default of a contract or warranty resulting in a person's death. For example, it could be due to medical malpractice, a DUI, auto accident, or personal injury. When a wrongful death occurs, the victim’s family has the legal right to hire a wrongful death attorney in DeLand to file a civil suit to recover monetary damages against the person(s) or entity whose actions or contract violations resulted in the death.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when the negligence of a healthcare professional causes injury or death to the patient. However, proving medical malpractice is not as simple as it looks. That's why you will need to hire a competent personal injury attorney who specializes in medical malpractice claims. Healthcare professionals are held to a high standard in Florida and many other states. However, the law understands that medicine is not a perfect science. And despite a healthcare professional's best efforts, a patient may not have a desirable outcome. Therefore, your attorney must be able to demonstrate to the court's satisfaction that an injury or death was a direct result of a healthcare professional's negligent actions to win a medical malpractice lawsuit in court successfully. Some examples of medical malpractice include, but are not limited to, misdiagnosis, improper testing, performing unnecessary surgery, surgical errors, and dispensing the wrong medication, to name a few.

Auto Accident

In 2020, there were over 3,300 auto accident fatalities in Florida, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. These include fatal crashes involving bicycles, motorcycles, pedestrians, and hit and run. Also, a driver that was negligent, distracted, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol that resulted in the death of another person, a surviving spouse, family member, or another representative can file a wrongful death lawsuit to seek compensation for their loss.
