While no amount of damages will bring back or replace a loved one, restitution is allowed to assist in rebuilding your life and family in the instance that your loved one died as a result of the misconduct of another. A wrongful death lawsuit claims that the victim was killed as result of negligence, or other type of unjust action, on the part of the person or entity being sued, and that the victim’s survivors are entitled to monetary damages as a result of the improper conduct.  In Florida, the losses that resulted in one’s death are turned over to their survivors, which may include the decedent’s spouse, children, parents or other relatives who were dependent on the decent for financial support.
