Wrongful Death Lawyer in Dallas
When a person meets an untimely death that could have been prevented, many people are impacted. These people include: family members, life partners, and financial dependents. Our Dallas wrongful death lawyers can help you through this difficult time by handling the legal process for you and bringing justice on behalf of your family member.
A wrongful death lawsuit can be pressed if someone dies as a result of another person or company's negligence. There are many types of wrongful death claims, from medical malpractice, to car accidents, to product liability, or a construction accident. The goal of a wrongful death claim is for a survivor's family to receive compensation for the death of their loved one. When a family member passes away, not only are individuals subject to emotional loss, they are subject to financial loss as well, especially if the individual's wages supported the rest of the family.
Negligence means a person failed to act in a reasonable manner given their situation. Our wrongful death attorneys can help you determine if another party acted negligently and if you have a claim. Call our lawyers today at 800-863-5312 to get started with a free consultation.
Who Can File?
Typically the only individuals who are eligible to request a wrongful death lawsuit are: a victim's surviving spouse, children of the victim, and dependent parents. If none of these survived a victim, parents who were not dependent on the victim can request a lawsuit as well as a victim's siblings, grandparents of the victim, or any next of kin.
Factors To Consider Before Filing
Before a claim can be filed, a wrongful death attorney can help you evaluate who was at fault: A driver? An employer? A manufacturer? An installer? The owner of the premises? There are many individuals who could have been responsible and held liable. It is often a complex and difficult process establishing fault, which is why it is encouraged that you get the necessary legal assistance of a firm knowledgeable about wrongful death cases.
A wrongful death claim can be filed whether the accident was intentional or unintentional. When you file this claim, it is important to decide a number of factors:
- Who could provide expert testimony regarding a victim's life expectancy
- What the lost financial support amounts to
- What the monetary value of loss of companionship amounts to
- Who was at fault
