There are multiple ways to seek legal action for the death of a loved one or family member. In Texas, surviving family members are entitled to file a wrongful death lawsuit. This means that there could be multiple claims for different individuals resulting from a single incident. Spouses, children, and parents can all bring a claim for wrongful death following the death of their loved one.
Expert Guidance in Wrongful Death Cases
Recovery through both the Wrongful Death Act and the Survival Statue requires diligent effort from an experienced Texas personal injury attorney. A recovery through the survival claim goes to the estate of the decedents and is disbursed through the decedent’s will or through intestate. Recovery from a wrongful death includes emotional and mental anguish, suffering, medical expenses, torment as well as punitive damages in cases of gross negligence. An experienced trial lawyer can present these types of issues to not only achieve a recovery for you but also to hold the liable parties accountable to protect others from similar accidents.
