What Does Florida Consider As A Wrongful Death Case?

Question: My husband’s aunt recently died from being electrocuted by her heating blanket. Does Florida law consider that as wrongful death?

Answer: Wrongful death laws recognize that when someone dies as a result of another person or entity’s negligence that a wrongful death case can be pursued. These laws protect the family members of the victim by holding the negligent individual responsible for compensating the victim’s survivors.

Since your husband’s aunt died from the use of a product, it may involve a case of product liability. Florida considers product liability as a cause of wrongful death, depending on of the necessary criteria listed below:

  1. Defective Design-the product is inherently dangerous
  2. Manufacturer Defects-failure to demonstrate reasonable care in production
  3. Failure to Warn-the product fails to include directions or warning
