What is the Value of Your Wrongful Death Suit?
As your attorney, I explore the facts of the case and then help you estimate the value of your claim. Although it is difficult to state an exact amount, I can help you determine the extent of your losses based on the nature of the accident, who is at fault, and your economic circumstances. You may be able to recover payment for the following losses:
If your loved one was rushed to the hospital and given medical attention prior to death, you may be able to claim all medical costs. This may include ICU fees, surgical care, ambulance services, and more.
Your family may be entitled to claim all funeral costs such as burial, casket, body preparation, burial plot, tombstone, and other funeral home costs. I can help you determine the median cost in the state of Texas.
The loss of a loved one can forever alter your family in various ways. I can explore damages such as loss of income, loss of parental care or consortium, and loss of quality of life.
Survival Claim (Pain and Suffering)
In addition, your family may be able to submit a survival claim. This occurs as a result of the ongoing pain and suffering that the family experienced prior to death. Your family may have experienced emotional trauma caused by watching your loved one suffer. Again, money can’t make up for your grief or trauma, but it can help you get the boost you need to at least alleviate the financial losses caused by your loss.
