What You Need to Prove Wrongful Death in Florida
In order for your case to qualify as wrongful death in Florida, it must meet certain legal criteria. For instance, your case must demonstrate:
There was a duty of care.
You must provide evidence that the person you hold accountable for the death of your loved one had a legal responsibility or expectation to act in a certain way within the situation and circumstances in which the death occurred. Your wrongful death attorney can help you determine if there was a duty of care.
The duty of care was not met.
You must show that despite the expectation of duty of care, the accountable party failed to take such care and acted in a negligent manner that disregarded the duty and caused harm.
Failure to perform the duty of care was the cause of death.
A person who does not perform duty of care is not necessarily liable for your loved one’s death. In order to win a wrongful death case, you must show direct cause and effect between their action or inaction and the death of your loved one.
