It depends on the relationship to the person who have passed away. Florida laws are very specific about who can bring a claim and what damages they can pursue for that claim. For example, if the person who dies as a result of medical malpractice is married, the spouse can bring a certain claim. If there are children under a certain age, they can bring a claim. The estate can bring a claim on behalf of the person who passes away. Each situation is very specific, so it’s important that you discuss this with an attorney and talk about all the ins and outs of your individual case.
