Has your family suffered the tragedy of a fatal accident? If so, you may need legal help to protect your financial future. You may need a wrongful death attorney to fight for your rights to fair and fitting payments for your losses.
Simply put, when someone’s negligence results in a fatal accident that makes them legally liable and results in the death of a person, it’s considered to be a wrongful death. This accident can happen during a car crash, while on the job, or in other situations. Often, such fatal accidents are due to the negligence of someone other than the victim, from a bad driver to an employer who doesn’t provide proper safety gear in the workplace.
When someone else’s mistakes cost a life, they are legally responsible for the financial losses that ensue, including lost present and future salary, as well as the pain and suffering endured due to a fatal accident. Such assistance doesn’t come to survivors of victims automatically. Often, a family must fight to be paid the money to which it is legally entitled with the help of a knowledgeable wrongful death lawyer. That’s because bad drivers, employers, or insurance companies may try to place blame elsewhere and avoid paying. Victims’ survivors have legal rights, and our law firm is here to protect them.
This type of lawsuit after a fatal accident can be based on negligence or deliberate harm. The estate of the victim can file a lawsuit on behalf of survivors or others affected by the death, seeking economic compensation for their losses. There are numerous Texas state laws and federal laws in place that can affect any one case.

Though no amount of money can bring back a loved one after a fatal accident or wrongful death, lawsuit options and legal actions are a way for survivors to receive what they are legally entitled to for their many losses. Among the things fatal accident lawyers can help you seek are payments for the pain and suffering of the victim prior to death; medical expenses prior to death; funeral and burial expenses; loss of inheritance due to death; loss of the victim’s projected income; and loss of love, care, companionship, guidance, and nurturing that the victim would have provided.
