What if the victim died in the crash? Does the claim die with them?

Categories: FAQs

No. Florida has enacted a statute that allows the personal representative of the deceased victim’s estate to file a wrongful death lawsuit. The measure of damages, however, is different from that of a personal injury lawsuit. You can recover for medical and funeral expenses, the value of financial support provided to surviving relatives, lost wages that the deceased could have earned if they had lived, loss of importance of the victim’s probate estate, loss of companionship and guidance, and psychological suffering (if the deceased was a child).
