A wrongful death claim in Florida is governed by a series of statutes, and they provide that if someone's injured through the fault of another, the survivors are entitled to recovery. The estate's entitled to recover for loss of the earnings of the deceased, loss of net accumulations. Minor children can receive pain and suffering compensation, compensation for the loss of companionship and guidance of that parent. A spouse can sue and recover damages for the loss of their spouse. So there are a multitude of damages that are available to people that are the victims of wrongful death.
