Which Family Members Can Bring a Wrongful Death Suit in Florida?

The Florida Wrongful Death Act requires the personal representative of the deceased person’s estate to file the lawsuit for the benefit of decedent’s survivors. Any of the following family members of the decedent could recover damages through a wrongful death claim:

  • A spouse;

  • Children;

  • Parents;

  • Blood relatives or adoptive siblings who were dependent on the decedent;

  • Children born out of wedlock to a mother; and

  • Children born out of wedlock to a father who had recognized responsibility for the child.

​​

The personal representative must bring the claim to recover damages for these parties. Often, the deceased’s last

will and testament—or the court handling their estate administration—will determine your loved one’s personal representative.

 

Even if you are a relative who was not financially dependent on the decedent, you may still be eligible to receive damages. If your family member cared for you and you must now hire someone to take their place, for example, you might qualify for compensation for this loss.
