Compassionate Legal Counsel After The Death Of A Loved One: Wrongful Death Claims
It is difficult enough to deal with the loss of a loved one, and it can be even more traumatic if you believe their death was caused by the wrongful actions of another. If you have suffered due to the loss of a loved one, it is important to have a lawyer on your side who is experienced in the Texas legal system to help you prove the actions of the other person caused your damages and file the proper court paperwork in a timely manner.
The experienced attorneys at Michalk, Beatty & Alcozer, L.P., in Killeen have spent years helping clients get the outcomes they deserve in wrongful death suits. Let us fight for you so you have more time to heal and support your remaining family.
Damages In A Texas Wrongful Death Suit
It is important that you ask for all of the damages for which you are due in a wrongful death suit, as you may only get one chance at a full recovery. People who are likely eligible to participate in a wrongful death suit include the surviving spouse, children, adopted children and parents. If the family does not object or file their own wrongful death suit, the executor of the deceased’s estate may do so. Potential damages include:
- Lost earnings
- Lost support, advice, care and maintenance suffered by surviving family members
- Pain, suffering and anguish
- Inheritance lost to surviving family members due to an earlier than expected death
- Loss of comfort, companionship and love
Our experienced attorneys will sit down with you and make sure that you are asking for the damages you deserve, and fight for you in settlement or court proceedings to make sure no one takes advantage of you and your family.
It is vital that you contact our experienced lawyers as quickly as possible following a wrongful death, as Texas requires that the suit be filed within two years. Our attorneys are well-versed in the exceptions to this rule, and they are prepared to help you quickly if your two-year deadline is approaching.
