Circumstances may arise where a family member or loved one tragically dies as the result of a collision with a car, train, or tractor-trailer; or due to medical negligence or some other tragic event.
Under Florida law, beneficiaries of the estate may be able to recover monetary damages if one dies because of the negligence of another. In Florida, beneficiaries of the estate may be entitled to the following types of damages:
- Grief, sorrow, mental anguish, loss of society, companionship, comfort and guidance;
- Expected loss of income from the decedent, reasonably expected loss of services; protection, care and assistance which the decedent may have provided;
- Expenses for the care, treatment and hospitalization of the decedent from the injury that resulted in death; and reasonable funeral expenses.
