Justice After the Death of A Loved One

After wrongful death tragedy, it can be difficult to locate responsible parties, potential insurance recoveries, and sources of legal compensation. Also, it can be difficult to prove the full extent of damages a family is suffering and will suffer as a result of the tragic loss. Furthermore, insurance companies typically actively seek to pay little or no compensation. Jason Coomer helps families seek the answers and justice they are due after the death of a loved one.

A Texas Wrongful Death Lawyer Can Investigate Recovery Sources

A Texas wrongful death lawyer can seek compensation from the defendants responsible for the death. Additionally, other recovery sources can include various type of insurance policies such as:

  • Accidental death policies
  • Life insurance
  • Homeowners insurance
  • General commercial policies
  • Automobile insurance

These recovery sources can compensate widows and Texas families for the death of a loved one. In many instances if the party who killed your loved one is a business, the party will have a general commercial policy. Furthermore, these polices typically have limits of one million dollars or more to insure from catastrophic injuries and death. Companies responsible for a death often conceal these policies. A wrongful death lawyer makes formal demands of insurance that triggers the policy.

If the party that caused the death of your loved one owns a home they will probably have homeowners insurance. Therefore, the policy may compensate for an accidental death resulting from the negligence of a homeowner. Like other insurance policies, a party or an attorney will need to trigger these policies within a certain time after the death. Typically, a death lawyer can make a demand to trigger the insurance. Alternatively, a party or death lawyer may need to file a lawsuit.

A Fatal Accident Attorney Can Seek Many Types Of Damages

A fatal accident attorney will need to thoroughly investigate the death. It is important to determine liability and damages. It is also important to understand the different types of compensation available through the Texas legal system. Likewise, it is important to understand the various types of legal and insurance death claims. As such, under Texas law there are two main types of death actions.

The Texas Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Firstly, the Texas wrongful death lawsuit is available to the spouse, parents, and children. In order to have a claim there needs to be the wrongful killing by the negligent actions of another. Accordingly, the Texas wrongful death claim seeks money compensation based on a variety of factors including:

  • Loss of love, companionship, comfort, assistance, protection, affection or care
  • Loss of financial support
  • Lost benefits, such as insurance, from the death
  • Loss of inheritance from an untimely death

Texas wrongful death claims fall under Texas law for the intentional or negligent killing of a person. A wrongful death lawyer can make demand and seek a death settlement. If needed, a fatal accident attorney can help you in filing a Texas wrongful death lawsuit.

The Texas Survival Claim

Secondly, there is a survival action that passes through the decedent's estate. As a result, the claim allows the estate representative, heirs or beneficiaries of a decedent to seek compensation. Texas survival actions are a type of legal claim that a party or lawyer can file in an accident death lawsuit.

Further, Texas survival actions are claims for what the decedent would have recovered had the person survived the accident. These claims travel through the decedent's estate and either go to their heirs or beneficiaries depending if the person had done any estate planning. These damages include:

  • Expenses associated with the death including funeral costs
  • Medical expenses prior to the death
  • Pain and suffering associated with the untimely death

Surviving family members should seek full compensation from the responsible parties for the damages. To obtain survival accident damages, it is typically necessary to file a probate lawsuit. This probate action will establish an estate administrator or executor. Additionally, a court can determine the lawful heirs or beneficiaries of a lost loved one.

When can a Wrongful Death Lawsuit be Filed?

Having a loved one killed by the carelessness, conscious disregard, or negligence of another, is extremely difficult. These death claims typically need to be brought within two years of the accidental death. There are many different types of injuries and deaths that can give rise to Texas wrongful death claims and Texas survival claims. Below are a few examples:

Injuries are one of the leading causes of death in Texas. The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) created the Office of Injury Prevention to combine injury and fatality resources. Find more information on Jason Coomer's injury and death lawsuits webpage.

Have an Experienced Texas Death Attorney on Your Side!

An experienced death attorney can make a difference in your claim. Far too often deaths occur due to hazardous defects, wrongful acts, and the carelessness of others. Individuals often need assistance in dealing with and seeking compensation from insurance companies and large corporations.

Corporations that carelessly kill a person often spend a lot of money fighting the claim instead of compensating the family for the loss and fixing the problem. Unfortunately, insurance companies can act in the same way. Further, businesses should be made to value life and safety above profits. Having an experienced wrongful death attorney on your side can force large corporations and insurance companies to do the right thing.
