Billions Won for Grieving Families by Wrongful Death Lawyers in Laredo, TX

Losing a loved one is the most difficult experience in a person’s life—especially if their death could have been prevented. Unfortunately, this is the case for hundreds of families in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an average of 146,000 unintentional accidental deaths occur every year. According to studies on grief, each of these deaths caused concrete emotional, social, and financial harm to spouses, parents, or children.

If you are one of those families that lost a loved one because of someone else’s negligence, you have the right to seek compensation for what you've lost. The Laredo wrongful death lawyers at Arnold & Itkin LLP have the resources and track record to help you rebuild your life and hold at-fault people accountable for the death of your loved one. We have won billions of dollars for people nationwide, helping them pay for funeral costs, loss of benefits, loss of companionship, and more.

What Is a Wrongful Death Claim?

Wrongful death occurs when a person’s actions, negligent or deliberate, cause the death of another. A claim under wrongful death holds at-fault parties liable for some of the economic and emotional losses associated with the death of a loved one, from funeral costs to punitive damages for criminal negligence.

Filing a wrongful death claim allows a victim’s family to grieve in peace without wondering how they'll pay the bills or provide for themselves. If an individual was responsible and they're already facing criminal proceedings, certain family members can still file a civil lawsuit against him or her. If a company was responsible, a wrongful death claim is the only justice those at fault will ever face.

Which Types of Incidents Qualify as Wrongful Death?

CAN I FILE A WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIM?

In most states, family members are the only ones eligible to file a wrongful death claim. Courts largely give children and spouses the primary right to file a wrongful death claim. A parent, sibling, or another relative will be unable to file a claim if a child or spouse is already pursuing one. If you have any additional questions on your eligibility to file a wrongful death claim, you'll need to speak with an attorney.

The parties eligible to file a wrongful death claim include:

  • Children over 18 years old
  • Spouses
  • Siblings
  • Parents
  • Parents of unmarried children
  • Any dependents

There is a 2-year statute of limitations on wrongful death claims. This means that you have a limited amount of time to file a wrongful death claim after you suffered the loss of a loved one. Contact our Laredo wrongful death attorneys as soon as possible to get started on your claim.

To learn more about wrongful death, read Sec. 71 of the Civil Practice & Remedies Code.

What Damages Can Be Claimed in a Wrongful Death Suit?

The loss of a loved one is emotionally devastating and physically draining. You might also experience significant financial losses to pay for funeral costs, medical expenses, or your family's basic needs. Financial support can ease your situation and remove the burden of paying bills while you and your family grieve.

You are entitled to recover monetary compensation for three general types of damages, such as:

  • Economic Damages—This type of compensation is for funeral and medical expenses related to the death of your loved one. You also have the right to recover the loss of future income and benefits that your loved one would
  • Non-Economic Damages—These types of damages include pain and suffering and mental anguish. This may also include loss of companionship and consortium.
  • Punitive Damages—Depending on the situation, the court may grant families additional compensation as a way to punish the responsible parties for their actions.
