When someone has been killed due to another person's negligence, they lose their ability to take legal action. Through a wrongful death claim, however, surviving family members have the right to pursue legal recourse on behalf of the deceased. Under the Texas Wrongful Death Act, Sec. 71.004 of the law permits "statutory beneficiaries" (the deceased person's parents, spouse, or children) to file a wrongful death claim against the liable party.
At the Wyatt Law Firm, our San Antonio wrongful death lawyers completely understand the grief, sorrow, and inconsolable heartache you must be experiencing at this time. Though taking legal action may be the last thing on your mind, filing a wrongful death claim may be one of the most helpful steps that you take during the process of grieving. If compensable, a wrongful death claim can help provide your family with the financial support you need after unexpectedly losing a loved one.
Wrongful death claims may cover:
- Medical bills and hospital expenses
- Any treatment-related costs accrued immediately after the accident and prior to death
- Emergency medical treatment, including ambulance transportation, traumatic care, and emergency room expenses
- Financial losses, including the deceased person's loss of wages, the future earning potential that he or she would have provided to the family, or potential inheritance benefits
- Pain and suffering on behalf of the surviving family members
- Loss of companionship and / or consortium
- Funeral and burial costs
We believe that no paycheck, settlement, or financial offer will ever be large enough to compensate for the life and love that your family member brought to the world. This is why we emphasize the pursuit of justice. Your family deserves answers. As fervent watchdogs of the law, we refuse to let someone else's intentional wrongdoing impact your lives - and we see to it that justice is done.
We are here to listen to your family's story. Call our law firm today to speak with us confidentially.
