One can only imagine the shock and grief associated with learning that a loved one has suffered an unexpected and untimely death. When that death is a result of a fatal vehicle accident that was caused by another person's negligence, the aftermath is often one of devastation for family members and others who knew and loved the victim. Texas law provides for families who have suffered such grave losses by allowing them to seek justice for the deceased.
Although it is difficult to think beyond one's sorrow, it is a fact that many families face serious financial struggles following such incidents. Funeral expenses, on top of any medical bills for care rendered before death, add further burdens to already suffering families. By filing wrongful death claims in civil court, families may seek monetary judgments against those seemed responsible for their loved ones' deaths.
During a time of mourning, the process of filing a legal claim may seem complicated and stressful. By contacting an experienced personal injury attorney, a family can put its trust in the guidance and assistance of someone who has obtained successful results for others in the past. An attorney can launch an immediate investigation into your claim to help determine all possible sources of liability and the maximum amount of compensation to which you may be entitled.
It is only right that Texas law should protect those who have suffered such great losses due to a fatal vehicle accident. Many times, criminal charges are also filed against negligent or reckless drivers. An attorney can refer to criminal proceedings to help substantiate a client's personal claim in civil court.
