When An Accident Takes Away Someone You Love
No death seems right, but when another’s negligence is the cause of a loved one’s death, you have options. If somebody in your family has died due to someone’s negligence, you have the right to seek justice, at least from a financial standpoint.

What Is Wrongful Death?
Wrongful death is “a claim in common law against a person or corporation that may be held liable for the death of a spouse, child or parent.” The intentional act or negligence of a wrongdoer would fall under the term’s definition. Deaths caused by a reckless driver or a doctor’s negligence are examples of wrongful deaths.
You Have Limited Time To Bring A Wrongful Death Claim
Bear in mind there is a time limit within which you may file the claim. Typically, in Texas, you have a maximum of two years from the time of death within which to file your claim. However, it is recommended that you engage an attorney as close in time to the fatal accident as possible so we can preserve the evidence and testimony that could prove vital to your case.
