What Our Dallas Wrongful Death Lawyers Can Do for You

  • We’ll Discuss Your Wrongful Deal Case for Free

    During your free consultation, we'll listen to your story and get all the facts of the accident. From there, we'll gather evidence to build a case against the party who is responsible for the wrongful death and start our battle to win you and your family everything you deserve for your suffering.

  • You Pay Nothing Upfront

    At Anderson Injury Lawyers, there are no costs upfront because we work on a contingency basis. When you work with us on a wrongful death case, you won’t owe us anything until we secure full compensation for your loss.

  • We’ll Immediately Investigate the Accident

    The laws surrounding wrongful death actions in Texas can be complicated, and while no legal claim can bring your loved one back, we can fight for justice on their behalf. If we're going to convince the insurance company to pay you and your family full compensation, we’ll need to prove that the other party caused the fatal accident and that the accident was directly responsible for your loved one’s death. We will work with an accident reconstructionist and various other professionals to determine what happened and how it could have been prevented. Fast action is important, which is why we make investigating your case a priority.

  • We’ll Fight the Insurance Company

    Insurance providers and large companies are notorious for making it hard to hold negligent parties responsible, especially when fatalities are involved. We have a deep understanding of Texas wrongful death law, how to demonstrate liability, and what it takes to win compensation for everything you’ve lost. If those responsible for your loss refuse to pay you fairly, we’ll take them to court.

  • We’ll Win the Compensation You Deserve

    We know how to evaluate the various damages you incurred after the loss of loved one, including the income you are losing, the medical, funeral, and burial expenses you incurred, as well as your grief, emotional distress, and mental anguish. We always pursue the maximum compensation possible and fight relentlessly for each and every one of our clients.

Who May Receive Wrongful Death Compensation?

It is important to work with an experienced lawyer before filing a wrongful death lawsuit on your own. Your lawsuit will be dismissed if you do not have a valid claim, or if you are the incorrect party to file.

Texas also limits who may receive a portion of the wrongful death settlement or court award. This compensation is intended for surviving:

  • Spouses
  • Children
  • Parents

How much each surviving relative receives depends on the circumstances. You should contact our office if you are concerned about how wrongful death compensation will be distributed.

Texas’ Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations

Under Texas law, the statute of limitations for a wrongful death lawsuit is two years. You and your family have two years from the date of your loved one’s death to file a lawsuit.

There are exceptions to the statute of limitations, which may give your family more time to file. If a considerable amount of time has passed, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We will carefully review your circumstances, including the dates of when your loved one died and when you discovered another person might have been at fault. If you did not know for months or years that someone else was at fault, and your relative’s death was not purely an accident, then the deadline for you to file may be extended.

Compensation in a Texas Wrongful Death Claim

When we file a wrongful death claim on your behalf, we seek compensation based on your losses. Through a wrongful death lawsuit, our lawyers will fight for you to receive compensation for:

  • Surviving family members’ grief, emotional distress, and mental anguish
  • Surviving family members' mental health care expenses
  • Funeral and burial expenses paid by family members
  • Loss of your loved one’s income and financial support
  • Loss of family member’s potential inheritance
  • Loss of your loved one’s love, support, and society
  • Loss of your loved one’s household services
  • Loss of your loved one’s parental guidance
  • Loss of the spousal relationship

Additionally, your family may wish to pursue punitive damages. Punitive damages are not intended to compensate you for an injury. Instead, when the other party acted egregiously, they are intended to punish them for their conduct.

Additional Information about wrongful death law

Wrongful Death Claims Differ from Survival Actions

Many people believe that a survival action is the same thing as a wrongful death lawsuit. However, these are two very different types of legal claims.

A survival action is a legal claim that survives your loved one’s death. It is a legal claim your loved one had prior to their passing. Because the legal claim has survived, a family member or the personal representative of the estate can pursue the claim on behalf of the decedent and their estate. Compensation from a survival action goes to your loved one’s estate, not surviving family members.

You may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim, a survival action, or both. You should talk with a lawyer about whether a personal injury claim survived your loved one’s death.
