Whether you’re in Texas or somewhere else, our legal team will help you get the compensation you need to take the time to heal and adjust to your new way of life. At Husain Law + Associates, P.C., you will find your best ally and your Houston wrongful death attorney. You and your loved one deserve justice.
What constitutes as negligence?
Proving negligence is the backbone of a wrongful death claim. We have to prove that:
- Someone was legally obligated to do or not do something
- Someone failed to do what it was they were obligated to do
- Death or injury occurred as a result of said negligence
- Monetary damages have been made in the form of lost wages, funeral costs, etc.
Wrongful death can occur as a result of multiple types of accidents, including:
- Auto accidents
- Aviation accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Workplace accidents
- Product recalls and liability
- Drug recalls and pharmaceuticals
Who can file a wrongful death claim?
In Texas, you can file a wrongful death claim for a loved one if you are a:
- Life partner
It is important to know that every state has different laws about who can file wrongful death suits. Although Husain Law + Associates, P.C. is based in Texas, the laws in your state may be different. Our expert wrongful death legal team can represent you wherever you are.
We thoroughly investigate your claim to ensure the maximum compensation. Whether from drunk driving or an aviation accident, our legal experts have nearly 40 years of experience and understand what you need and how to get you the compensation you deserve. This is not a journey you should walk alone—we fight for your rights and the rights of your loved one. Like you, we believe that anyone’s wrongful death is unacceptable. You do not have to sit by and bear the financial burden alone.
Who can be sued in a wrongful death claim?
When you file a wrongful death claim, companies, business owners, individuals, government agencies, and employees can be sued. If your loved one dies in a car crash, you can demand justice from the driver of the other vehicle; if your loved one dies in a plane crash, you can demand justice from the manufacturer. All negligent parties can be sued for wrongful death. You and your loved one have a right to see justice be served and the responsible parties take ownership of their actions.
Although there are parties who are protected from being sued for wrongful death, we are committed to doing our best to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve and that the responsible parties are truly held accountable for their actions.
What damages can I seek in a wrongful death suit?
In Texas, you can seek damages in a wrongful death suit under two categories: damages to your loved one as the deceased, including medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, and lost wages, and your personal damages as the survivor, including loss of care, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
- Lost wages
- Medical bills
- Loss of benefits
- Lost inheritance
- Property damage
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Lost care and support for survivors
- Loss of comfort and companionship
- Pain and suffering for the deceased
- Mental and emotional pain and suffering
At Husain Law + Associates, P.C., we realize that no amount of money can replace the unique personality and physical presence of a beloved relative, a cherished member of your family unit. However, a settlement amount approved by you or a victory at trial can go a long way toward buying the time needed for the healing process.
What is a survival claim?
Unlike a wrongful death claim, a survival claim is intended to seek damages for the deceased that were incurred before death. The compensation received from a survival claim goes into the estate of the decedent and is divided according to their will.
What is a bystander claim?
A bystander claim can be made if you witnessed the event that led to severe injury or death as a result of someone’s actions. Only close relatives can file a bystander claim, and we must be able to prove mental or emotional damage occurred as a result of witnessing the event.
