Seeking Compensation After a Devastating 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
Who Is Able to File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
According to the state laws of Texas, only certain people are able to file a claim for wrongful death after the passing of a loved one. Any spouse, child, or parent who survives is allowed to file a lawsuit in the civil court of Texas. 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.
Why You Must Obtain Support in Seeking a Wrongful Death Claim
The state of Texas has set a statute of limitations that requires wrongful death claims be filed in a certain limited amount of time. The statute of limitations is two years following a victim’s passing. While it might seem like this is a long time, many grieving family members are surprised to find how quickly the time passes. It is essential to seek support in filing a claim from our experienced wrongful death lawyer in San Angelo.
