Securing Compensation For Wrongful Death
At the Zendeh Del Law Firm, PLLC, we know that no amount of money can make up for your loved one’s death. The purpose of a wrongful death suit is not to reward you for your loss, but to help ensure financial security for your future, and make up for any lost funds you may have suffered as a result of this tragic incident. This is especially important in cases where the person who passed away was the primary breadwinner of the family, or had outstanding debts their loved ones will now be responsible for. Compensation in wrongful death cases can cover:
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Medical expenses
- Loss of business
- Loss of income
- Funeral costs
In some wrongful death cases, you may also be able to receive punitive damages. This compensation exceeds the normal value of something and is rewarded to emphasize the responsibility of the defendant.
Providing You The Answers And Legal Representation You Need
We understand that you are experiencing challenging situations and need assertive answers to your questions and concerns. Below we share common questions we have answered for our clients:
Who is eligible to file a wrongful death claim?
The surviving spouse, children or parents of the victim are eligible to file a wrongful death claim, provided the death occurred due to a third party’s negligent and reckless actions. The victim’s estate executor may file such a lawsuit on behalf of the family three months after the death occurred, provided the eligible family members agree to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
Do I really need an attorney for a wrongful death case?
The assistance and representation of an attorney can help you navigate the process and take care of the paperwork, negotiations and deadlines so you can focus on healing. Plus, a lawyer knows what it takes to build a solid case for you, recover and maximize your compensation and hold the liable party accountable.
Is there any time limit I should consider when filing a wrongful death claim?
According to the Texas statute of limitations, an eligible surviving family member has two years after the victim’s passing to start any legal action against the party at fault. After such a period, the courts will dismiss any claim filed. Therefore, if you want to file a claim, it is vital to start any legal action as soon as possible.
Should I trust the insurance companies in a wrongful death case?
Insurance companies didn’t build their empires because they wrote generous checks for their clients. Instead, they have highly skilled attorneys and representatives who will do everything to settle your case for the lowest amount possible. They will also attempt to close your claim as quickly as possible and could even try to blame the victim for the accident. That’s why the assistance of an attorney to learn your rights and what your compensation should include can help you recover fair compensation. You will also have a knowledgeable representative who will negotiate and advocate for your best interests with the insurance representatives.
How do I pay a wrongful death attorney’s fees?
Wrongful death and personal injury attorneys like us follow a contingency fee scheme. This means that you only pay our fees if we win your case. During our first consultation, we will discuss and agree on a fixed percentage you will pay us once we recover your compensation.
