Default Cause of death

When someone dies is the cause of death public record? Is it searchable online in Florida?

If I recall correctly there are two types of death certificates. One with cause of death and one without. The one with cause of death is only available to family members.

Correct.


Cause of death is not released unless a family member permits it

Remember in Florida a cause of death is either because of autopsy or a physician just signing a death certificate.

An autopsy is only done in suspicious deaths or when it is requested or paid for by family or other issues.....

bottomline there are a lot of deaths where the personal family physician will sign off on the death certificate with a cause based on what they are treating the patient for and not because of any autopsy which was not done. An autopsy is the only way to get a true cause of death..
