Wrongful Death Attorney / Accidental Death Lawyer
An action for "wrongful death" occurs when a person is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another individual, company or entity. In instances of serious and fatal accidents, the decedent's survivors or estate may bring a lawsuit for wrongful death. Survivors include the decedent's spouse, children and parents. Texas law in this area is governed by the Texas Wrongful Death Act. Money damages that are recoverable by survivors in a wrongful death cause of action include: 1) Loss for the care, maintenance, support, services, advice and counsel had the decedent lived; 2) Loss of companionship, society and love; 3) Metal anguish; 4) Loss if inheritance; and in some cases 5) Exemplary (punitive) damages.
