In the real world, many personal injuries result in death. At that point, the victim is obviously no longer around to bring claims of any kind. Yet the deceased’s family remains deprived of support, companionship, etc. How does the law keep the death of the victim from somehow working to the benefit of the person responsible for causing the death?
Wrongful death cases can be very complex. Recovery depends on establishing that the defendant—the person being sued—is legally responsible for the death. Since any number of different accidents may have caused the death—vehicle accidents, gunshots, falls, and countless other mechanisms—you need a Texas lawyer with wide experience in personal injury cases of all types, in addition to specific experience with the technical requirements of the wrongful death laws.
