Filing a Wrongful Death Claim in Texas
When someone you love dies because of the actions or negligence of another party, you may be eligible to receive compensation by filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Compensation for the family in lawful death cases can help pay for funeral costs, medical bills, and to keep the family above water. While this compensation will never make up for the loss of your loved one, it can give you some peace of mind and justice for the wrongful death.
Families deserve justice for the terrible loss. Careless behavior and negligence is the cause of death for way too many people. Our personal injury attorneys can help you file a claim and alleviate some of the financial burden you might be facing. At Personal Injury Attorney Texas, we offer legal counsel and lawyers for people across the state of Texas.
Our attorneys have years of experience in wrongful death cases. You don’t want to go this road alone when you are already dealing with so much pain and stress from the loss of your loved one. We have experience and expert level knowledge of the Texas laws related to these cases.
Here are some of the wrongful death accidents that we can provide legal counsel for:
Car and Motorcycle Accidents: Drunk drivers behind the wheel end up ripping away the futures for thousands of people each year. Distracted drivers who are texting or not paying attention to the road are also a serious threat. We can help if your loved one died from one of these accidents.
18-Wheeler Accidents: Truck drivers who are negligent or companies who are not following necessary safety regulations can cause serious harm and death.
Dog Bite Accidents: In the majority of these cases, children are victims. If dog owners were negligent, they can be held responsible for the actions of their pets.
We can also provide legal help for wrongful death claims related to:
- Choking accidents
- Slipping and falling accidents
- Bicyclist and Pedestrian accidents
- Police brutality accidents
Who can file one of these wrongful death claims in the state of Texas?
These claims are usually filed by the spouse or immediate family members. In certain situations, a claim can be made by life partners or financial dependents. Children and spouses have legal rights to receive compensation in all 50 states. In Texas, common law spouses are also able to file wrongful death claims.
If you have any specific questions about if you have a valid claim or whether or not you can file a claim given your relationship to the victim, please give us a call.
