How Much is the Average Wrongful Death Settlement Worth in Florida?
Damages In a Florida Wrongful Death LawsuitFlorida legal statutes allow compensation for economic and non-economic damages in a wrongful death lawsuit.
Economic DamagesMedical bills, funeral costs, and other damages with a definite monetary value are economic damages. This also includes lost wages, benefits, and financial support the deceased would have provided. This amount is easily determined by keeping track of medical and hospital bills.
Non-Economic DamagesMental pain and suffering do not have an exact cash value. Damages without an actual monetary value are called non-economic damages. This also includes the loss of support and companionship.
Valuing Non-Economic DamagesPlacing a value on things like pain and suffering and the loss of a companion is a difficult task. The value will be affected by several factors, including the age of the deceased, the amount of financial support they provided, their occupation, and their overall health before death.
Expert WitnessesAn experienced Florida wrongful death lawyer will have a network of experts who can testify and who can provide guidance for valuing non-economic damages. In addition to medical professionals, your lawyer may be able to connect you with a forensic economics expert who can provide knowledge about future values.
