Burleson Wrongful Death Attorneys
Fighting for Justice in Johnson County & Greater Fort Worth
It's bad enough that most accidents result in personal injury, but in some extreme cases, a victim loses their life. When this occurs, the family of the victim must endure the suffering resulting from their loss, as well as the financial strain of a funeral, burial, and other such expenses. These damages could be covered by a wrongful death claim, however, allowing the immediate family to receive financial compensation from the party liable for their loved one's death. Reach out to the Burleson wrongful death attorneys at Coontz Cochran to find out more.
Filing a Wrongful Death Claim in Johnson County
If negligence can be established and one or more parties are shown to be liable for the wrongful death, the surviving spouse, children, parents, and/or siblings of the victim could file a claim against them. This requires the qualified counsel and representation of an experience lawyer to ensure that negligence is established and a fair amount of compensation is awarded.
Wrongful death damages can include the following:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of income
- Pain and suffering
- Grief counseling fees
- Loss of companionship/consortium
Do not wait another day to file a claim if you have lost a family member in an accident. The Texas Statute of Limitations generally only allows an individual to file a claim within two years of the accident, so it is important to get legal help immediately and take the first steps toward justice and a full recovery of your damages.
