Longview Wrongful Death Attorney
Have you lost a loved one due to wrongful death?
The experience of the untimely death of a family member can be a devastating, painful period in one's life. If their death came as a result of the misconduct, either willful or negligent, of another individual or a company, that death is deemed a wrongful death. Knowing how to pursue a wrongful death claim can be confusing and may seem impossible in an already chaotic situation of the aftermath of your loss. Contact a Longview personal injury lawyer from our firm today and let us assist you.
When an individual dies due to the negligent or purposeful misconduct of another, there are certain factors that must be present in order for a wrongful death claim to be pursued.
- An individual has died
- Their death was caused by another's misconduct, either willful or negligent
- The individual is survived by family members who have incurred financial damages due to the death
- A representative has been established to handle the deceased's estate
If all of these elements are present, than legal action can be taken to help you to recover compensation for damages. Our caring and knowledgeable team of professionals can help you pursue legal action in a lawsuit filed in civil court.
Possible Areas of Wrongful Death Compensation
There are a few different areas of compensation you could pursue with a wrongful death claim. First of all, you could pursue compensation for the medical costs up until the time of the loved one's death. You could pursue loss of income, which is an economic damage that provides wage compensation based on what the individual would have earned had they not been wrongfully killed.
You may also be able to pursue noneconomic damages such as pain and suffering and loss of companionship. While these areas are not easily quantifiable by a dollar amount, you could receive this type of financial compensation. You can also recover money for funeral costs up to a reasonable amount. Speak directly with a Longview wrongful death lawyer at our firm to learn what type of wrongful death compensation you could be entitled to.
