Immediate Help For Families Experiencing A Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences someone can go through in their lifetime. While a departure due to natural causes or old age may be something one can somewhat prepare for, a sudden loss comes with its own unique set of complications and emotions. What’s more? To learn that your loved one’s death could have been avoided altogether would fill anyone with anger, frustration, and rage, and negligent conduct of companies and people has caused the loss of life more than you might realize. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX catastrophic injury attorneys at Crain Brogdon LLP explain what you can do in the event of a wrongful death and what steps you should take to preserve and prove your case.

What Qualifies as a Wrongful Death

According to Texas law, a wrongful death can occur as the result of another person’s negligence, medical malpractice, or willful acts. Wrongful deaths can occur when an injury leads to a person’s death resulting from another entity or person’s negligence, whether due to neglect, carelessness, lack of necessary skills, or wrongful act. (CPRC §71.002).

Proving someone responsible for the death of a loved one can be challenging. To prove your case, your situation must meet very specific criteria defined by the law. Moreover, the law itself can be complicated and challenging, making it a time-consuming effort as well. If your family is currently overwhelmed with the wrongful death of a loved one, you do not need to go through this process alone. Give our office a call to learn your options.

Suing for Damages

In the case of a wrongful death, you are able to sue for pain and suffering, which are non-economic damages that are suffered from an injury or a loss. Other factors that can be considered include mental, emotional, and practical losses, emotional trauma,  loss of comfort, loss of consortium, loss of ability to enjoy life, PTSD, and loss of support. In the state of Texas, a descendents surviving spouse, parent(s), or child(ren) may file a wrongful death lawsuit.
