Wrongful Death Honored Among the Top Trial Lawyers in the Country

Dallas Wrongful Death Lawyers

Get Experienced & Knowledgeable Legal Representation in Dallas, TX

“Wrongful death” is a legal term which is used to describe any fatal accident for which another person is to blame. Only a close relative of the person who has died may bring a lawsuit for wrongful death, so it is a different matter from a personal injury claim.

Of course, no amount of money can compensate for the loss of a loved one, and when you are grieving, it is hard to concentrate on the fact that the law says that you are entitled to monetary compensation for the emotional and financial damage that you have suffered. Not only will you be mourning your loss, you will also be harboring feelings of anger that your loss was caused by the negligence of someone else. At Hernandez & Baggett, PLLC, our Dallas wrongful death attorneys understand the way that you feel, and you can trust us to handle your case with compassion and sympathy.

Texas Wrongful Death Laws

If a person loses his/her life in an accident caused by negligence or through intentional harm, family members of the deceased can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault party. In Texas, a lawsuit must be filed within two years of the person’s death.

The following are the individuals who can file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the deceased person in Texas:

  • Spouse
  • Children
  • Parents
  • Estate representative

Pursuing a wrongful death claim requires that you show a party was negligent and that negligence caused the wrongful death of your loved one. There are many different ways someone else’s negligence could create a cause of action for you, for instance, driving with faulty tires, brake failure as a result of lack of servicing, medical malpractice and much more.

A plaintiff can recover financial compensation for losses such as medical bills before the person’s death, funeral and burial costs, the deceased person’s pain and suffering, loss of financial support, loss of companionship, and the survivor’s mental anguish.
