Wrongful Death

Wrongful Death Loss

Wrongful deaths are tragedies, because by definition, these deaths could have been avoided. After someone dies wrongfully, family members are understandably devastated – and many families suffer both emotionally and financially. If you are a family member suffering a wrongful death loss in San Antonio, you may decide that pursuing a wrongful death case on behalf of your relative is the best course of action. And if you choose to proceed with a lawsuit, our compassionate and experienced attorneys are here to help.

What is wrongful death?

Legally, any death caused by the negligence or misconduct of another party constitutes wrongful death. Some examples of wrongful death causes include:

  • Medical malpractice
  • Car wrecks
  • Workplace accidents
  • Product defects
  • Drunk or distracted driving
Who can file a wrongful death loss lawsuit in Texas?

If someone dies wrongfully as the result of another party’s negligence, it’s not always clear who can file a lawsuit on the deceased’s behalf, since laws vary from state to state. In Texas, in order to file a wrongful death claim, plaintiffs must be one of the following statutory beneficiaries:

  • Children
  • Spouses
  • Parents
  • Foster parents
  • Grandparents

If you and your family have suffered the wrongful death of a loved one in San Antonio, you deserve answers. You have the right to know what happened, what could have been done to avoid this wrongful death loss, and to figure out who was ultimately responsible. In many cases, wrongful death lawsuits can help you to obtain these answers, along with financial compensation to help cover expenses you have unfairly incurred due to your relative’s death.
