If your family has suffered a loss, it is important that you all understand that wrongful death claims are available to you and your family if a corporation or person is responsible for the death. Workplace injuries are the most common type of wrongful death claims filed by any law firm.
Auto accidents and construction accidents also account for many wrongful death lawsuits.
If the death occurred on the job, it is very important that you understand that Texas Employers are legally obligated to provide a safe work environment for their employees. If the decedent’s employer does not create a sufficiently safe workplace and the death occurs during employment, then the decedent’s loved ones may file a wrongful death suit for the employer’s negligence and possibly employer’s gross negligence. Also, a person driving a vehicle is responsible for driving safely on the road and not endangering property, other drivers, pedestrians, occupants of vehicles, and other vehicles. If a driver drives recklessly and someone gets killed due to this conduct, then filing a wrongful death lawsuit is the correct action. Wrongful death lawsuits are intended to compensate the decedent's loved ones for lost earnings the victim would have gotten, if the decedent had lived and worked for an average lifetime. Wrongful death verdicts or settlements also get compensation for the decedent's family for lost companionship, mental anguish medical expenses and such issues in addition to funeral and other expenses that result from the incident that caused the death. If whoever caused the unfortunate death acted without regard to others' safety, known as callously, then you may have punitive damages available.
