We are a team dedicated to representing families who have suffered wrongful death, economic loss, other damages due to negligence, including fatal automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, nursing home abuse, defective equipment accidents, construction accidents, slip and fall accidents and medical negligence, including harmful drugs.
Wrongful death is considered to be a death that has occurred through the wrongful act or negligence of another. A wrongful death may arise from accidents, malpractice and or as the result of an intentional act.
A wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party is generally initiated by or on behalf of the spouse, children or family of the decedent, through their lawyer.
Recoverable damages in a Texas wrongful death case may include:
- Hospital and medical care
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Compensation for the financial aid the deceased would have provided in the future
- Compensation for the loss of companionship, affection, love and moral support the deceased would have provided
In addition to the Wrongful Death claim, the decedent’s estate may, in certain cases, have a claim for medical expenses, loss of income, and pain and suffering preceding death.
The law in this area is very complex and can involve many areas of the law. It is sometimes difficult to assess the damages due to their intangible nature. If you feel that someone close to you has suffered a wrongful death due to the negligence of another, seek the advice of a Sharp Firm wrongful death attorney.
