Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Houston Wrongful Death Lawyers
The death of a loved one creates a devastating time for the family. The agony of the loss is compounded when death is caused by the wrongful acts of another. Not only is there the mental anguish understandably associated with the wrongful death, but also there are often medical or hospital expenses and funeral expenses, which must be addressed, as well as the loss of financial support by the decedent.
Texas has statutes that deal specifically with establishing compensation for wrongful death. These statutes identify who can bring a claim for wrongful death, survivors who can be compensated when there is a wrongful death, and establish the damages that are recoverable. Texas also provides a shortened Statute of Limitations for wrongful death claims, requiring these claims must be brought within two years of the death.
Wrongful death is best described as the loss of life due to the negligence or recklessness of another person or company. It can result from momentary negligence or even an act of recklessness. It can be the act of an individual or a corporation.
