What is a Wrongful Death lawsuit?

The term “wrongful death” is a term used by attorneys and judges to refer to a death that was caused by a wrongful act of another person or company. A simple way of looking at it is like this: you have a right to sue the person who killed your parent or child.

In Texas, wrongful death actions can be applied to any circumstance where a defendant’s bad conduct caused the death, including in:

  • motor-vehicle accidents (driver was at-fault, caused the collision which killed the other driver)
  • semi-truck accidents; medical malpractice (doctor broke the rules of the medical profession which caused patient to die)
  • civil rights cases (officer shoots a suspect who is not threatening)

Who can bring a Wrongful Death lawsuit in Texas?

The wrongful death lawsuit must be brought by the personal representative of the deceased’s estate. The court, usually in a probate action, will appoint one or more people as the personal representative(s). However, just because the personal representative brings the suit does not entitle them to the damages recovered. The proceeds recovered by the suit, whether by judgment or settlement, are distributed according to State law and depend on the type of damages recovered.

Here at Titans Legal we understand the emotional devastation inflicted upon a loved one’s family and friends due to wrongful causes and our Dallas personal injury attorneys are here to help you through this difficult time.

If your loved one’s death was the result of wrongful act by someone or some entity in Dallas, you may be entitled to receive damage compensation from the responsible parties. We understand that money doesn’t alleviate the pain and despair of losing your loved one, but it can help lessen the financial burden caused by your loved one’s death caused by wrongful acts.

Speak to A Lawyer First

It’s vital that you speak to a lawyer before contacting the insurance companies about your case. The insurance company’s goal is to settle your claim as fast as possible for as little money as they can. The lawyers at Titans Legal can help you recover the financial compensation that you’re owed.

You may be entitled to financial compensation for:

  • Economic Damages which are tangible losses that are able to be calculated.
    • Medical bills (including past, current, and future expenses)
    • Lost wages (documentation of lost wages will help you recover for the income you lost during your recovery or will lose as a result of being unable to work at the same job after the accident)
  • Non-Economic Damages / General Damages which are damages that cannot be calculated.
    • Pain and suffering
    • Reduction in quality of life /  loss of enjoyment of life
    • Loss of sexual relations (also known as loss of consortium)
