49 States Allow Families Justice for Wrongful Death, 1 Does Not

Welcome to Florida, the free kill state. Because the deceased person is no longer available to bring the claim for himself or herself, another party must be allowed step in to bring the case to court on behalf of the deceased person's survivors and estate. The right to bring forth a lawsuit due to wrongful death allows families to seek justice. It also breeds the culture of correction. If we have to pay for our mistakes, typically we try not to make them again. Corrective actions occur only where there is accountability.
