Fighting for Justice on Behalf of Your Loved Ones
Under Texas law, a wrongful death is a death that occurred due to the negligence of another individual or entity. This could be a result of an accident, malpractice, or even an intentional act. While nothing can bring back a loved one, wrongful death suits can help the family of the victim in many ways.
For many people, wrongful death suits can help to bring about a feeling of closure and justice. Knowing that the party that caused the death of a loved one is paying for their actions can help to grieving loved ones through such difficult times. Of course, financial compensation can also help to make transitioning into a life without the deceased loved one possible.
Who Initiates a Wrongful Death Suit?
In most cases, these types of suits will be initiated by a spouse, child, or other loved one of the diseased. An attorney at The Sharp Firm will work with the loved ones to help ensure the suit is filed correctly and vigorously work on the case until it is concluded. This helps allow the family to focus on their grieving process, and begin to put their life back together.
Potential Recoverable Damages
Every wrongful death case is unique, so it is impossible to have an idea of what types of damages may be possible. In Texas, families are typically entitled to compensation for one or more of the following types of damages:
- Hospital and Medical Care
- Funeral and Burial Expenses
- Compensation for the Financial Aid the Deceased Would Have Provided in the Future
- Compensation for the Loss of Companionship, Affection, Love, and Moral Support the Deceased Would have Provided
