What Is a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

In essence, a wrongful death claim is a personal injury claim that the victim cannot file on his or her own behalf. These lawsuits are intended to help surviving family members recover compensation for lost companionship, lost income, funeral costs, and other damages. 

In Texas, you can file a wrongful death claim if someone else’s “wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, unskillfulness, or default” caused your loved one’s passing. Contact our Houston office if you believe you may have a claim.

  • What Are the Causes of Wrongful Deaths?

    There are many incidents that can cause a wrongful death to occur. The below is not an exhaustive list:

    • Car accidents
    • Motorcycle accidents
    • Truck accidents
    • Medication errors
    • Surgical errors
    • Medical malpractice
    • Dangerous drugs
    • Defective products
    • Workplace accidents

    The liable party can also vary, depending on the cause of death. A motorist may be at fault for a fatal crash; a surgeon may be at fault for a mismanaged surgery; and a manufacturer may be at fault for a defective product that proves fatal. If you’re not sure if your loved one’s fatal injury qualifies as a wrongful death, or you’re not certain who’s responsible, contact us.

  • What Damages Are Available in Wrongful Death Lawsuits?

    Although every wrongful death case is unique, our attorneys often pursue damages including:

    • Lost care, services, and support
    • Pain and suffering
    • Mental and emotional anguish
    • Lost companionship 
    • Lost income
    • Lost earning capacity
    • Lost inheritance
    • Punitive damages (if the wrongdoer was grossly negligent)
  • Why Hire Morgan & Morgan?

    All law firms are not the same. They don’t all have the resources to take on virtually any case, nor do they have a track record of excellence. Just as important, they don’t all treat their clients with the sensitivity they deserve.

    You can rest assured that, not only will we fight to get the best results in your case; we’ll always treat you with respect and compassion. From start to finish, we’ll handle every aspect of your case and handle it with the utmost attention to detail.

    Although nothing can erase the anguish of losing someone you love, our attorneys may be able to help you achieve some peace of mind in holding the liable party accountable.
