What must I prove in order to win my florida wrongful death case?

You must prove negligence, which is unreasonable conduct, and that unreasonable conduct caused the death. You then must prove causation. Meaning that the unreasonable conduct was the actual cause of the death, and then you must prove damages, which are damages to say the surviving spouse and children or the survivor’s under the wrongful death statute. Those damages are pain and suffering, loss of the value of the value of the money in the state that the person that was deceased would have earned and other potential damages.
