Have you lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence? Check out these 3 wrongful death tips, then call our Texas lawyers to get started.
1) Timeline for a Wrongful Death Case
When I have clients who have lost a loved one – a spouse, a child, or a parent – due to a wrongful death incident, they often ask me how long a case will take. One of the factors, in fact the key factor, in a wrongful death case is whether or not the insurance company for the defendant who caused the wrongful death is negotiating in good faith. Let’s be absolutely clear – the only cases that go to trial are cases where the insurance company is unwilling to pay full and fair compensation for the horrible and tragic harms that they’ve caused clients. This is the greatest detriment to a quick resolution.
We at the Chavez Law Firm understand this, and we prepare from the very beginning for trial because we understand that the best way to get full and fair compensation for our clients is to be prepared from the get-go.
2) Filing a Wrongful Death Claim
Oftentimes when I have people come into the offices of Chavez Law, they ask who can file a wrongful death claim in Texas. The answer is very simple – husbands and wives, parents who’ve lost their children, and children who have lost their parents can file wrongful death claims in Texas. Because of the importance of these claims, you have two years, generally, to file a wrongful death claim. The first and most important thing in determining whether or not you have a wrongful death claim for the negligence that somebody else caused is to find and hire an experienced trial attorney.
