In Florida, a death can be considered wrongful when it's caused by somebody else's carelessness or recklessness. If a drunk driver hits somebody, that can be a wrongful death. If a doctor commits malpractice and someone dies, that can be a wrongful death. If a business owner has a business in a high crime area and takes no step to protect his customers and someone is shot during a robbery, that can be considered a wrongful death.
