Understanding Wrongful Death Claims in Texas
Insurance Companies Aren’t Always Fair
In our experience, insurance companies and their adjusters oftentimes try to low-ball how much they will pay for your medical expenses, your lost wages, and other damages. In other words, many insurance companies are more focused on protecting their own bottom lines by undervaluing your claim instead of paying you what you deserve.
You Need to Act Quickly to Protect Your Legal Rights
If you’ve been harmed in an auto accident, it is very important to speak with an injury lawyer as soon as possible for 2 main reasons:
Your Time is Limited – First, the time to start a legal action for compensation is limited by Texas law to two years from the date of your injury. If you are in an accident involving a vehicle driven by a state or local government worker, the time to bring a claim for your injuries can be a short as 90 days from the date of the incident.
Evidence Needs to Be Preserved – Second, it is important for your lawyer to collect as much evidence as you can to support your claim before the evidence disappears and the witnesses forget what happened during the accident.
Your Right to Compensation Includes Many Things
Your legal right to be compensated for a wrongful death claim includes many things such as:
- The loss of the deceased person’s earning capacity
- The value of the care, maintenance, services, support, advice and counsel he or she would have provided to family members.
- Your emotional pain and suffering from the death of your family member.
- Loss of inheritance, referring to what the deceased person would have accumulated and left to you if he or she had lived a normal expected lifetime.
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of companionship or consortium
