When a spouse, parent, domestic partner or child has been killed in an accident, the loss is sudden and devastating. In addition to the pain, grief and emotional loss, family members must deal with moving into the future without their loved one. It is at times like this that families turn to Texas wrongful death attorneys who can help make sense of the legal and financial aspects of the family’s loss, and obtain financial compensation from those responsible.
What Qualifies as Wrongful Death?
Wrongful death occurs when an individual dies as the result of another party’s negligent or unjust acts. Families of wrongful death victims may file a lawsuit against the negligent party. In a wrongful death lawsuit, the family of the victim is seeking economic and non-economic damages for the loss of their loved due to another party’s improper conduct.
What Constitutes a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
In order to bring a successful wrongful death cause of action, the following elements must be present:
- The death of a human being;
- Caused by another’s negligence, or with intent to cause harm;
- The survival of family members who are suffering monetary injury as a result of the death, and;
- The appointment of a personal representative for the decedent’s estate.
