Tampa Medical Malpractice Lawyer Discusses Filing for Wrongful Death on a Malpractice Case
If you or your family has been a victim of medical malpractice that results in a death there are special laws in Florida that apply to any potential claim you may have. In Florida if the decedent, the person who you’ve lost is not either married or has a child under the age of 25 although there may be a technical wrong that was committed, there may be no recoverable damages. In other words if there’s not a survivor who is either a spouse or a child under the age of 25, there is no survival claim or beneficiary who can recover monetary damages. The estate may have a claim for loss of net accumulations but if your loved one wasn’t in his saving years you must have a spouse or a child under the age of 25 who is still partially dependent on the decedent at the time of the death.
