Miami Wrongful Death Lawyer David H. Charlip Explains Who is Able to Sue for Wrongful Death in Florida

Miami wrongful death lawyer David H. Charlip ( releases a new article explaining who can sue for wrongful death claims in Florida. The lawyer mentions that before someone is able to file a lawsuit for wrongful death, they must have a “standing” to sue. The legal term “standing” refers to the ability of a person to file a suit in court based on their interest in the outcome. In order to be allowed to file suit, a person must demonstrate that they have a sufficient relationship to the matter.

“Florida law requires that the personal representative of the estate deceased person must file a wrongful death claim. This personal representative will be listed in the estate plan or will of the deceased. If no personal representative was listed, the court will name a personal representative to help with a wrongful death claim,” says the Miami wrongful death lawyer.

Florida law allows the surviving family members of a person who has died as a result of another's negligence or wrongdoing to file a wrongful death lawsuit. A wrongful death claim can be brought against an individual, a company, or a government entity. It is a civil action that seeks to hold the responsible party accountable for the death of the victim and to provide compensation to the victim's family for their loss.

The damages that can be recovered in a wrongful death case may include medical and funeral expenses, lost wages and earning capacity, and the loss of companionship and support. The number of damages that can be recovered will depend on the specific facts of the case and the relationship between the victim and the surviving family members.

According to the lawyer, “Whatever the circumstances of your family member’s passing, a wrongful death lawyer can help you explore your options for pursuing legal action. Although any act of negligence that leads to a fatality may fall under the definition of wrongful death, these incidents occur most often in car and motorcycle accidents, commercial trucking accidents, construction accidents, and many others.”

Lastly, the personal injury attorney emphasizes the importance of having a skilled lawyer when it comes to matters such as filing an injury claim or a wrongful death claim. An experienced personal injury lawyer may be able to help the victim receive the compensation they deserve.
