When a family member suffers a tragic death due to the wrongful acts of another, a wrongful death lawsuit is often filed. Florida has instituted a modern wrongful death procedure whereby the personal representative of the deceased's estate files a wrongful death lawsuit against the wrongdoers. After a settlement or favorable judgment, the wrongful death proceeds are divided under the auspices of the probate court.
