Wrongful Death Lawyer in San Angelo

Compassionate Legal Support for Wrongful Death Claims in San Angelo

The sudden loss of family is extremely difficult, especially when it is caused by the negligence of another. Wrongful death can happen out of the blue and may be caused by many factors or situations.

Below are some of the most common causes of wrongful death:

  • Serious car or motor vehicle accidents -- this includes accidents caused by driver or operator negligence (speeding, reckless driving, driving under the influence, etc.), a defective product in the vehicle which caused the accident, the city’s failure to maintain safe roads, and more.
  • Truck accidents -- trucks are much larger than other motor vehicles and are more likely to cause death in an accident. Other factors in these types of accidents include driver errors such as driving an overloaded truck, driving while fatigued, and more.
  • Defective products -- manufacturers of products are held liable if a person dies from using or consuming a product. This includes toxic food, unsafe products for children, defective car parts, and more.
  • Workplace accidents -- some occupations are high risk because they involve manual labor (for example, construction jobs). Other jobs may be risky because they require long shifts which may lead to fatigue, exhaustion, and a car accident on the way home.
  • Medical malpractice -- serious mistakes by medical personnel, whether misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a condition, surgical errors and more.

Financial Recovery: Your Rights After a Wrongful Death

When a person has acted in a negligent or careless manner that leads to the untimely death of someone else, this egregious action, or failure to take appropriate life-saving actions, needs to be accordingly penalized. The perpetrator may be a single individual or perhaps a whole corporation is at fault for inappropriate practices. No matter who is liable, however, the family members who survive are entitled to financial compensation for the lethal pain and suffering of their loved one.

In the state of Texas, the survivors of wrongful death victims are able to claim compensation for:

  • Costs required to pay for funeral and memorial services
  • The lost salary and wages which the decedent was earning to care of the rest of the family
  • Any inheritance which was lost on account of the decedent’s early passing
  • The emotional and mental pain endured by the surviving family members
  • Lost companionship, support, advice, or care for dependent adults and children within the family on account of the victim’s untimely death

If the loss of your loved one was a wrongful death, you are entitled to compensation that can help bring you a peace of mind after everything you have already endured.

Eligibility to File: Who Can Pursue a Wrongful Death Claim?

In certain cases, if three months have passed and none of these individuals are able or desire to file the claim, then an “executor” (someone who has been given the role of the administrator or representative of the estate), is able to file the lawsuit.
