What is Considered Wrongful Death Under Texas Law?
In the state of Texas, wrongful death is when a person dies because of the actions of another, be it through negligence, intentional actions, or misdeeds. Wrongful death is different from murder because the individual responsible did not intend to kill when they committed the act. These accidents occur most often in car accidents, workplace accidents, or when doctors mistreat patients leading to their death. A wrongful death suit does not usually bring criminal charges against the person at fault but does recover damages for you.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
When a driver makes a mistake at the wheel and causes the death of another individual, this is considered wrongful death in Texas. The person at fault may have been texting or using their phone, or perhaps they were under the influence of drugs or alcohol. It also could have been that they simply weren’t paying attention. In any of these scenarios, their misdeed led to the untimely death of your loved one. Wrongful death lawyers could help you seek justice if your family member died as a result of a car accident.
Workplace accidents can occur as a result of employers failing to provide a safe workplace. The business could have allowed slippery conditions to form or not have provided their employees with proper protection from harmful injuries.
Doctors have faith placed in them by patients and their families to make the best decisions in regard to their health. In some circumstances, for whatever reason, a doctor may not give a patient the proper treatment, which leads to their death. Nurses and other medical professionals can also be held liable for patients who died because they did not receive a reasonable level of treatment.
Whatever the situation, your best choice when facing a wrongful death lawsuit is to consult with attorneys who are not afraid to go after the positive results you deserve. You can look to The Wolf of Law Street for a legal team that understands your needs and will be a strong ally in your corner.
What Compensation Can I Gain from a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
With the passing of your family member, you may be owed compensation from those responsible for their death. Some of the costs covered include medical expenses that were incurred before your loved one died, funeral expenses, and compensation for the emotional anguish that you and your family have suffered. You could also be compensated for the lost income that the deceased person would have contributed to the family. The future earning capacity of that individual, as well as the loss of inheritance, may also be considered as well as the loss of their companionship and love.
While some of these items carry no price tag, the reimbursement of as many expenses as possible can lighten the burden felt by family members of the deceased individual. For the best chances at gaining the compensation you deserve, look to the lawyers at The Wolf of Law Street.
How Long Should I Wait Before Filing for Wrongful Death?
