Wrongful Death Laws in Texas
A wrongful death occurs when an individual is killed due to the negligence of someone or because of the actions of a person representing a business. We understand that when these situations happen, the surviving family is devastated and suffers a loss. We understand that no amount of money will replace your loved one or help ease your grief, but it is our job as your wrongful death attorney to get you the compensation to help you to carry on after their death. We take time to investigate your situation thoroughly and to determine who is responsible for your loved one’s death. We can then pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against these parties and bring them to justice. When you have our experienced legal expertise on your side, you can rest assured that your legal rights will be protected every step of the way.
In Texas, parents, children, or surviving spouses or partners have the right to bring a wrongful death lawsuit. There are certain deadlines under the Texas Wrongful Death Statute. This makes it important that you hire a wrongful death lawyer immediately. An executor of the estate needs to be appointed to represent the estate and we, at Hoch Law Firm, PC handle all of those arrangements as well.
Damages Associated with Wrongful Death Lawsuits
When it comes to wrongful death lawsuits, we can pursue compensation for loss of earning capacity (that would have been earned if the death didn’t occur), loss of inheritance, loss of companionship, pain and suffering, medical or hospital bills, funeral and burial expenses and possibly other damages including punitive damages. After hearing the details of the wrongful death in question, we can then determine all of the damages that are eligible in your particular lawsuit.
