Corpus Christi Who has the Legal Right to Represent the Deceased?
In a wrongful death lawsuit, damages can include compensation for medical expenses, funeral arrangements, loss of income, and pain and suffering related to the victim's untimely death.
The exact damages available in any case differ. One of our experienced Corpus Christi Wrongful Death Attorneys will know what is available in each case. Thhey can give you good advice about exactly what damages to sue for.
In a wrongful death claim, a family member will bring a lawsuit against the person whose negligence, or unjust actions, caused the unexpected death of their loved one. Since the person who was killed can't initiate a claim, this type of case is handled differently than a traditional negligence suit for personal injury.
It can take an experienced attorney to look at the facts of each case and figure out who can sue and what exactly they can sue for. Each and every family, and its situation, are different. Those differences in exact relationships determines who has the cause of action and for exactly what types of damages. An experienced lawyer will see the subtle differences in each situation and be able to advise you exactly how to file a lawsuit and on whose behalf.
The parent, child or spouse of the deceased brings a wrongful death claim against the defendant whose conduct or negligence is believed to have been the cause, in whole or part, of the victim's death. A lawyer can review your case to determine if the defendant's conduct or negligent actions contributed to the death and what monetary damages have resulted from the victim's death.
Wrongful Death trials are often just as complicated as the components of the wrongful death lawsuit. Typically, there is a lot at stake for both the family of the deceased and the defendant's insurance company.
The defendant insurance company will have lawyers, expert witnesses and investigators working for them. All of these people will be experienced veterans of these kinds of cases. In your case, they have only one job. That job is to deny or minimize your recovery for the loss of your loved one. They are good at their jobs.
