Wrongful Death


Wrongful Death Lawyer in Texas

The law dictates that people in certain capacities have a legal obligation in their dealings with other people to practice optimal safety and show concern for them. Examples include relationships between doctors and patients, employers and employees, and drivers to other drivers. If catastrophic personal injuries lead to a person’s death, family members may claim wrongful death to seek compensation from a party who is deemed responsible for the accident that caused the fatal injury.

A successful wrongful death claim must explain how an intentional or negligent act caused both the accident and the injury, and present total damages sustained from both the accident and the injury. Damages may include medical bills, funeral expenses, lost financial support, and psychological distress. Common causes of wrongful death include car accidents, worksite accidents, medical malpractice, and negligent supervision.
