What if a person dies before bringing a personal injury lawsuit?

Return to FAQ Videos


The case then could transition into a wrongful death lawsuit, if the injuries that ultimately led to the deaths were caused by the underlying accident or event itself. Florida has several statutes that are known as Florida’s Wrongful Death Act, that deal with bringing a wrongful death lawsuit in the State of Florida.

If you have lost a loved one that you feel was caused due to the injury sustained in some type of accident or event, you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible after the accident, or after your loved one’s death, to talk about your rights under the Florida Wrongful Death Act.
