Texas law authorizes many types of damages for the loss of a loved one. Those damages include: lost earning capacity; lost care, maintenance, services, support, advice, and counsel the deceased would have provided his or her surviving family members; mental and emotional anguish, pain, and suffering; lost love, companionship, comfort, and society, and lost inheritance, including what the deceased would likely have saved and left to surviving family members if he or she had lived a normal expected lifetime.
Jon Alworth has successfully resolved cases for many aggrieved families. For example, one family was awarded $7.6 million as a result of a pipeline explosion; and in one oil field incident, a family was awarded $2.3 million. Another family was awarded $2 million to compensate for a workplace wrongful death.
Who Can File A Wrongful Death Claim?
In the state of Texas, the surviving spouse, children and parents may file a wrongful death claim. In addition, Texas law allows recovery for the survival damages of your loved one, such as medical bills, burial expenses, and any pain and suffering they may have experienced before they passed away. While two years may seem like a long time, it is important to act quickly so the proper evidence can be secured, and your family can obtain the justice you deserve. Let our team fight for your family’s rights.
