Can I sue for medical malpractice if a family member dies as a result of the malpractice?

Well, we in Florida are governed by a wrongful death statute and it tells which family members can sue for other family members. For example, a child under 25 can sue for the death of a parent. A spouse can sue for the death of another spouse. A father or mother can sue for the death of a child under 25 years of age especially. Yes, certain family members can sue, others can’t, like for aunt and uncle, so forth. It has to be within the persons suggested and named in the Florida wrongful death statute.
