McKinney Wrongful Death Lawyer
Losing a loved one is an emotionally devastating time for your family, especially if you believe they suffered a wrongful death. If you’re concerned about seeking justice for your family, reach out to a McKinney attorney for guidance during this difficult time.
A death in the family is never an easy experience. You’ve lost someone close to you, and worse, you believe the accident could have been avoided. Someone fatally injured your loved one because they were careless, and now your family is suffering emotionally and financially.
At Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP, we know how losing a loved one can affect you and your family. We also know how tough it can be to get justice and closure through a lawsuit. Fortunately, your McKinney wrongful death lawyer can help you and your family seek compensation and get closure.
Eligibility for a Wrongful Death Claim
Wrongful death claims are more complex because the injured person can no longer sue for their injuries. Furthermore, Texas limits who is able to file a lawsuit. Although that may prevent people from bringing forward separate cases for the same injury, it can be unclear whether you’re able to file.
In the time following the wrongful death, the surviving spouse, children, and parents of the deceased have the opportunity to file a wrongful death lawsuit. This includes adult children seeking compensation for their parents.
If they don’t file within three months, however, others may be able to file. After that deadline, the personal representative of the estate can then bring a case forward. That gives other family members a chance to sue if no action has been taken yet.
Compensation for McKinney Families
When you’ve lost a loved one, you’ve lost more than the costs of their accident, though. You’ve lost a companion and a family member, which can be emotionally damaging, too. Unfortunately, many people grieving the loss of a loved one aren’t aware of the compensation they could receive for their losses.
After your loss, your wrongful death lawyer can help you calculate the damages your family has suffered after the fatal accident. These can be both financial and non-financial; the latter can be difficult to calculate. That’s why it’s so important to speak to a lawyer as soon as possible.
If you’ve lost a family member to someone’s negligence, you may be entitled to some of the following losses:
- Loss of companionship and support
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of earning capacity
- Lost earning capacity
- Costs of their final care
