What is a Wrongful Death?
A wrongful death case can happen when a person tragically loses their life because of the negligence of another. Even if the case was originally tried in a criminal manner and failed, a wrongful death case may be brought forth after the fact. During these cases, our attorneys will work to prove that the wrongful death that your family has suffered resulted because of another’s negligence or recklessness. We will investigate information associated with the case and determine if a faulty product was to blame or if it was the result of another person driving poorly or acting negligently, or whether it was an institutional or governmental failure.
Help in a Wrongful Death Case
When reeling from a death in the family, any type of legal action might feel like the last option that you have any energy to go through. Our attorneys and staff understand what you’re going through and will empathetically and calmly help you through the legal process. The reason that legal action is so important is that you and your family will not only be struggling emotionally, but sometimes financially as well. The loss of a loved one can leave your family to endure without your loved one’s income, benefits, and guidance. Our attorneys at the Turley Law Firm will investigate your case and work to help you receive compensation including:
- Expected future income
- Loss of love and companionship
- Loss of guidance
- Medical care costs for treatment provided before the victim passed
- End of life expenses, such as funeral and burial costs
- Mental anguish
- Pain and suffering
In some cases, families might also be able to seek exemplary or punitive damages if the person responsible for the death performed a willful bad act or committed gross negligence. Punitive damages punish or “make an example” of the defendant by requiring additional compensation be paid to the victim’s family.
Understanding Wrongful Death Cases
Texas law states that a wrongful death claim must be filed within two years of the loss of the victim’s life. Family members who can initiate a wrongful death action include:
- The Estate of the Deceased
In the most tragic circumstances, nearly all types of personal injury cases we accept include wrongful death fact cases in:
- Auto and vehicle accidents
- Defective products, including car components, firearms, and other common products
- Poor maintenance or insufficient security in dangerous premises cases
- Medical malpractice
After investigating the circumstances of your loved one’s death and gathering crucial evidence, our attorneys will take action against the individual and/or groups responsible while you and your family focus on recovering from your loss.
