Wrongful death cases are among the saddest cases any attorney can handle. They begin when the plaintiff’s life is cut short due to the actions or in actions of another person, company, or government entity or agency. This includes the failure to maintain one’s property, a death resulting from an auto accident, a slip and fall resulting in death, a falling object on another person’s property, or even in cases of murder or manslaughter. Any case where an untimely death is caused by something other than natural causes has the potential to be a wrongful death suit.
Damages in a wrongful death case are based on the facts of the case, including the degree to which the defendant can be found responsible, as well as the future earning potential of the deceased. The family or estate of a wrongful death victim will be able to recover these damages as a replacement or estimate of what the individual’s estate would have been worth had the premature death not occurred. There may also be an award of pain and suffering between the time of injury and death.

A wrongful death claim is a suit that arises from the death of an individual that was caused by the conduct of another. A wrongful death suit is different from other types of personal injury claims because the actual victim (the “decedent”) is not bringing suit, rather it is the family members or the decedent’s estate. As such, a wrongful death claim is brought to recover damages for the injuries that the surviving family and/or estate have suffered due to the death of the victim.
In all matters involving personal injury it is essential that measures be taken promptly to preserve evidence, investigate the accident in question, and file a lawsuit prior to the deadline imposed by the Statute of Limitations. If you or a loved one is a victim of personal injuries, call now at (713) 489-1580. The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to accept your case, we will work on a Contingent Fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary award or recovery of funds.
Don’t delay! You may have a valid claim and be entitled to compensation for your injuries, but a lawsuit must be filed before the statute of limitations expires.
