What Qualifies as a Wrongful Death Claim?
A wrongful death claim can be filed when the negligent actions of another person or company led to someone's death. Wrongful death claims are civil claims, which means that they are brought directly by the family members of the victim. Even if the person responsible for the death is being criminally prosecuted, you can still file a civil lawsuit. If the fatality was caused by the wrongful doing of a company, the only way to get justice for your loved one is to file a wrongful death claim.
Below are examples of what might qualify for a wrongful death claim:
- Car accidents caused by drunk driving, texting, or another form of distracted driving
- Workplace accidents caused by the lack of safety equipment or supervision
- Attacks, assaults, or other criminal actions
- Malpractice by a doctor who failed to identify or treat an ailment correctly
- Drowning accidents due to property issues or premises liability
- Defective products or drugs
Filing a Wrongful Death Case in San Angelo
If you lost a loved one in an accident that was caused by another person or company, you might be eligible to bring a wrongful death claim against whoever is responsible. Although every state law is different regarding who can file a wrongful death claim, virtually all states allow immediate family members to bring a wrongful death claim. Children and spouses have the primary right to file a wrongful death claim. This means that a parent, sibling, or another relative won’t be able to file a claim if a child or spouse is pursuing one. To determine if you’re eligible to file a wrongful death claim, consult with our San Angelo wrongful death attorneys.
In Texas, the eligible beneficiaries of a wrongful death claim include the following:
- Children (over 18 years of age)
- Parents of unmarried children
- Spouses or life partners
- Any other dependents
It is important to know that there is a two-year statute of limitations on wrongful death claims in Texas. This means that you only have two years to bring forth a wrongful death claim or the court might dismiss it.
Recoverable Damages in a Texas Personal Injury Case
No amount of money will bring back your loved one or erase a serious injury from occurring in the first place, but filing a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit will help you obtain the financial compensation you need to support your family and cover expenses.
There are three general types of wrongful death damages depending on the laws of the state:
- Economic Damages: You may receive compensation for financial expenses related to the death of your loved one. This may include funeral and medical expenses, along with the victim’s future earnings and benefits had they lived.
- Non-Economic Damages: You may also receive compensation for non-economic damages that have less tangible value. This may include pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of inheritance, and loss of consortium.
- Punitive Damages: Punitive damages can also be awarded as a way of punishing the responsible party for willful or grossly negligent acts. It helps ensure that what happened to you doesn't happen to any other family.
