Can anything be recovered if medical malpractice causes the patient to die?

And the answer is yes. The estate can recover the same damages pursuant to the Florida Wrongful Death Act as could the estate and any other negligent action wherein someone is killed. That would include lost wages of the decedent, that would include medical bills incurred, funeral bills, and survivors, as that term is defined in the Florida Wrongful Death Act, could recover mental pain and suffering as a result of the death.
