Plano Wrongful Death Lawyers

After the wrongful death of a loved one in a senseless auto crash, your entire family may be thrown into a long period of overwhelming grief and stress. The financial burden alone of losing a family member can be staggering. While no amount of financial compensation will fully heal your family, pursuing damages after a fatal accident can alleviate some of your financial burdens.

If you have lost a family member on which you relied, whether for financial or emotional needs, you should consult an experienced attorney. Insurance companies may make you an settlement offer, but when you total the medical expenses, funeral expenses, future lost earnings, inheritance, and other out-of-pocket expenses, not to mention non-economic damages such as mental anguish and loss of consortium, the insurance company’s offer is virtually always insultingly low. It is always better to have a wrongful death and auto crash attorney protecting your interests while you and your family focus on grieving for your lost family member.

What Losses, Expenses, and Other Damages Could I Be Compensated For?

In Texas, the dollar amount you can receive after a wrongful death is not limited to your immediate financial losses, although you may certainly be entitled to recover those expenses.  After a wrongful death caused by a driver’s negligence, you can also be compensated for certain types of emotional damages. You may be eligible to receive compensation for:

  • Future Income – If your family relied on the deceased’s income, you may be compensated for future lost wages.
  • Loss of Consortium – If your spouse was killed or seriously injured, you may be eligible to receive compensation for the loss of that relationship.
  • Loss of Family Relationship – Whether your family member was a breadwinner or not, you likely relied on their support and companionship.
  • Medical Expenses – If your family member was given any medical treatment before passing away, these costs can be recovered.
  • Funeral Expenses – This includes costs related to burial or cremation, as well as the service.
  • Mental Anguish – Losing a family member to a careless driver is difficult and painful. You can be compensated for this emotional pain and suffering.

These are the main categories of available compensation, but depending on the circumstances, there may be other types of compensation for which you and your family can recover money damages. Contacting a qualified personal injury lawyer is the best way to learn all of your options.
