Treatment Centers Should Provide a Safe Environment
Residential treatment centers and sober homes must provide a safe and secure environment for patients. Whether it is an inpatient facility or an outpatient facility, they have a duty to provide reliable health care services to people who need help. Sadly, some rehab and treatment centers put their financial interests ahead of their residents. When profits come before people, lives may be ruined. Negligent facilities must be held accountable for wrongful deaths.
An Overview of Florida’s Wrongful Death Laws
Under Florida’s wrongful death laws (Florida Statutes § 768.19), a claim must be filed by a personal representative of the victim’s estate. While the appointed personal representative is responsible for bringing the claim, a wrongful death lawsuit is for the benefit of the estate and the surviving family members. To bring a successful wrongful death claim against a residential treatment center, sober home, or any similar facility, you must prove that the defendant’s negligence contributed to your family member’s death. Financial compensation may be recovered for:
- Funeral and burial costs;
- Loss of income;
- Loss of support and services; and
- Loss of companionship and consortium.
