In addition to the economic damages you suffer due to the loss of your loved one, you may be eligible for non-economic damages as well. Economic damages refer to the calculable financial loss as a result of the unexpected death. Non-economic damages, while just as valuable, are the subjective and non-quantifiable emotional distresses suffered by your family.
- Economic damages – medical expenses, funeral costs, loss of victim’s expected earnings, loss of benefits (pensions, insurance, etc.), loss of inheritance, loss of goods and services
- Non-economic damages – pain and suffering, mental anguish and loss of care, guidance, protection, love, society, companionship and consortium
It is important to note, the state of Florida places a two year time limit on filing a wrongful death claim.
Wrongful death claims can be filed by a representative to the survivors that have suffered damage from the death, or by the decedent’s heirs themselves. Wrongful death actions are separate from criminal charges, meaning that even if the party responsible for your loved ones death is acquitted of murder charges, a family can still sue that party for damages.
