Wrongful death claims are some of the most complicated and emotionally challenging there are. A relatively new addition to the United States legal system, wrongful death claims allow surviving family members to recover any losses they may have sustained due to the unexpected death of a loved one. Unfortunately, accidents happen every single day that take our loved ones from us, leaving family members with a huge hole in their hearts and lives. Texas law allows family members and loved ones to seek compensation for damages – including financial support and loss of benefits – by filing a wrongful death claim.

While no amount of money will ever bring back your loved one, receiving financial compensation for your damages and loss can help you move forward without having to worry about the burden of making up for lost wages.  

There are a wide range of incidents and accidents that can lead to a wrongful death claim, including car accidents, pedestrian accidents, bus accidents, truck accidents, aviation accidents, defective products, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, bite injuries, and more.

If you lost a loved one due to another person’s negligence or distraction, you may be able to take both civil and criminal legal action. It is important to keep in mind that these types of cases are not easy and often take weeks, months, or even longer to resolve. 

There are numerous important elements that go into a successful wrongful death claim, including evidence, witness testimony, and the type of the accident that resulted in your loved one’s death.

Wrongful death law applies to a myriad of situations in which an individual loses their life because of the negligent, reckless, or intentional actions of another person. Some of the most common circumstances that result in wrongful death claims include:

  • Car accidents
  • Defective consumer products
  • Dangerous prescription drugs or medical devices
  • Medical errors

Damages in wrongful death cases often include compensation for the following:

  • Lose wages
  • Loss of benefits
  • Any medical expenses that were incurred before the death
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Pain, suffering, and mental anguish
  • Loss of companionship

These are just a few examples of the what kind of compensation you may be able to seek after losing the loved one.
