Yes, the cause of action is wrongful death. In Florida, if a person dies as a result of a defendant’s actions, the deceased person’s estate may have a viable wrongful death lawsuit. Under Florida law, the personal representative of the deceased person’s estate (the “executor”) is the proper person to bring the wrongful death actionSee Fla. Stat. § 768.20. The proper defendant is typically the wrongdoer; however, if the wrongdoer dies, the proper defendant would likely be the wrongdoer’s personal representative. See Fla. Stat. § 768.20.
