If you’ve experienced the wrongful death of a loved one that occurred because of someone else’s neglectfulness or carelessness, you are familiar with a deep kind of pain that no one should have to experience. The death of your spouse, parent or child has changed your life forever, and it could have and should have been prevented.
Everyone handles grief in their own way, but some people are reluctant to pursue a wrongful death claim and would prefer to move past the incident. Nothing can bring back your loved one, but compensation from a wrongful death lawsuit can help with any lost wages, lost household labor contributions, and provide a head start for young children.
The deceased person’s family, meaning the surviving spouse, child or parents, have two years to file a claim before the Texas wrongful death statute of limitations runs out. If they do not file within three months, the executor of the deceased person’s estate may file the wrongful death claim.
However, it may take a wrongful death lawyer time to investigate and prepare the case, so it is better to start working with an attorney as soon as you can. With an advocate on your side, like the team Will Adams Law Firm, you can be assured that you will receive compassion and support as you seek closure and justice for the death of your loved one.
