Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Florida?

In accordance with Florida law, a wrongful death claim may be filed by the personal representative of the deceased’s estate. If the deceased’s will designates a personal representative, they have the authority to file the claim. In cases where there is no designated representative, the court will appoint one to pursue the claim on behalf of the estate.

Compensation from a wrongful death claim can generally be recovered by the following family members:

  • The deceased’s spouse and minor children.
  • If there is no surviving spouse, then all children of the deceased, except children over 25 in medical malpractice cases.
  • If no surviving spouse or children, then the parents may be eligible to recover, except in medical malpractice claims if the deceased was over 25 years old.
  • Other dependent blood relatives or adopted siblings of the deceased.

For children born to unmarried parents, they are entitled to recover damages if their mother passes away. However, if a child’s father passes away, the child may only be eligible for damages if the father had recognized the child as his and had an obligation to support the child.
