When Your Family Suffers An Early Loss, Our Family Is Here For You
Losing a loved one is never easy, but a premature loss can come with its own complications that you did not foresee. If your loved one has died due to a workplace accident, you can be left with enormous expenses in addition to traumatic loss. By filing a wrongful death lawsuit, our team at Packard Law Firm, in San Antonio, can help you seek compensation and closure for your loss.
Understanding The Basics Of A Wrongful Death Case In Texas
Some parts of a wrongful death suit may seem intuitive, but others require extensive legal evaluation and advocacy. Regardless, there are some fundamental things you should understand:
- What you need to show: Not only will you have to demonstrate that your loved one’s death was the direct result of the other party’s negligence or recklessness, but you will also need to demonstrate what is known as harm. This means you will need to show the full impact of their death.
- What compensation may include: If you are successful, you may be eligible to get money for medical bills, funeral costs, your loved one’s potential earnings and other expenses. This may also include financial compensation for your pain and suffering.
- The window of time to file suit: In general, you have two years from your loved one’s passing to file your claim. This is known as the statute of limitations period. After that, you likely will not be able to bring your case for an appeal.
Our legal team has handled these types of lawsuits for others in similar circumstances. We know the law, the rules and procedures and how to win.
