Wrongful Death

Compassionate Wrongful Death Lawyers in Corpus Christi

Advocating for Wrongful Death Victims in Woodland Spring & West Texas

Losing a loved one is one of the most devastating trials any family faces. Such a tragedy can be even more overwhelming when you suspect it was preventable. Unfortunately, many individuals lose a loved one to the negligent actions of another. These incidents are known as “wrongful deaths.”

If negligence, carelessness, or intentional wrongdoing has claimed your family member, you deserve justice. In a wrongful death lawsuit, that justice will come in the form of holding the wrongdoer accountable through compensatory damages. While obtaining compensation for your losses can never bring back the person you lost, relieve your grief, or make up for their absence, it can give you the financial resources you need to carry on and bring some closure to your misfortune.

Understanding Wrongful Death Claims in Texas

Many wrongful death cases are the tragic result of traffic and workplace accidents, medical malpractice, failure to warn consumers of risks in using products, failure to recall defective vehicles, and other unsafe shortcuts companies take to boost profits. Other cases may involve criminal attacks. 

When negligence is involved, the dependents and beneficiaries of the deceased are often entitled to monetary damages. These individuals may include the deceased’s spouse, children, parents, other family members, or representatives of the deceased person’s estate.

Survivors are entitled to financial compensation, including:

  • Lost wages of the deceased
  • Lost benefits, pensions, and retirement of the deceased
  • Medical expenses incurred by the deceased before death
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Survivors’ loss of companionship, services, care, support, and maintenance that the deceased would have provided
  • Survivors’ mental anguish
  • Pain and suffering

If the cause of death involved intentional acts, including criminal acts, known product defects, distracted driving, or drunk driving, the court may also award punitive damages.

Wrongful death claims must be filed within two years of the date that the person died. If you fail to meet this deadline, you will forfeit your right to pursue compensation.
