We understand the complex legal issues surrounding fatal accident claims and can help you protect your legal rights. Although no amount of money could ever bring back a loved one, compensation can ease the financial burden associated with a death and bring some sense of justice by holding the negligent party financially responsible for their actions.
Causes of Fatal Car Accidents
Some causes of fatal accidents in Texas include:
Illegal Street Racing
Drinking and Driving
Negligence / Inattention
Text Messaging & Driving
Accidents at higher speeds have a greater risk of resulting in fatality. Drinking and driving can be attributed to many fatal car accidents, as more than 40% of fatal crashes are alcohol related. There may be several causes of a fatal accident, and determining who is ultimately responsible can be complicated. Contacting an attorney soon after an accident is important because an attorney can preserve evidence before it is lost and speak to witnesses while their recollection of the accident is still fresh. At our firm, we work with some of the most experienced accident investigators and reconstructionists in the country.
Compensation for Wrongful Death
A wrongful death claim is brought by family members of the person killed in an accident. Depending on the circumstances of the accident and who was responsible, damages may vary. Generally, a claim for wrongful death may include final medical expenses associated with the accident, funeral and burial expenses, loss of victim’s benefits due to the victim’s death, loss of companionship, pain and suffering, and loss of earnings. Additionally, punitive damages may be awarded if the defendant’s actions were intentional or especially egregious.
