Who Gets The Money In A Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

In Texas, the person who receives the money in a wrongful death settlement is determined by law. You may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim against those responsible if your relative died as a result of another individual’s carelessness or intent. The compensation is given to a surviving spouse, children, parents, or estate. If your family lost a loved one as a result of another person’s negligence, Wrongful Death Lawyers Of Texas may be able to assist you.

There is virtually no end to the circumstances that might lead to a wrongful death claim. Every day, loved ones are killed as a result of negligence or deliberate acts by others. These claims aim to hold accountable those who are responsible for these damages and offer compensation to family members.

As a result of the above, claimants in wrongful death claims can collect compensation through:

  • Medical malpractice
  • Vehicle accidents
  • Violent crimes
  • Drug side effects
  • Defective products
  • Landowner negligence
  • Workplace accidents
  • Nursing or group home negligence or abuse
  • Government negligence or wrongdoing

When a loved one dies unexpectedly, surviving spouses, children, and parents can pursue compensation in Texas under the Wrongful Death Act. The estate administrator may also file a “survival action,” which is comparable to a wrongful death lawsuit. The money you receive from that lawsuit may be used to settle your loved one’s estate taxes and obligations, with the rest going to the next of kin if there is no will. If there is a will, the funds would go to the persons specified in it.

What Is Covered By A Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

 

The following are some of the things that a successful wrongful death claim might cover:

  • The deceased’s medical expenses
  • Past and future loss of income
  • Loss of other financial protection other than income
  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of spousal companionship
  • Loss of parental support and guidance
  • Pain and suffering
  • Legal fees for the execution of an estate
  • Any property damage related to a wrongful death

We may evaluate the specifics of your case to determine your losses.

How Much Is A Wrongful Death Claim Worth?

Each case of death by negligence results in different losses. We are unable to tell you how much your wrongful death lawsuit is worth until:

  • We understand how your loved one’s death occurred.
  • We know how the wrongful death has affected you.
  • We calculate the value of your losses.
  • We determine the share of liability for your loved one’s death.

Wrongful Death Lawyers Of Texas will fight for the compensation you are owed.

What Are The Possibilities For A Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

 

A wrongful death lawsuit can result in one of two outcomes:

  • A settlement
  • A judgment

A settlement is reached through discussions, whereas a judgment is the outcome of a lawsuit. According to the ABA, most civil cases (including wrongful death claims) end in a negotiated settlement.

Why Do Wrongful Death Lawsuits Result in Settlements?

 

We may be able to help you because:

  • A settlement provides control over your final compensation.
  • Settling is generally quicker than going to trial.
  • Going to trial comes with certain risks.
  • Going to trial can cause additional costs.

For these reasons, Wrongful Death Lawyers Of Texas fight fiercely for a settlement. When we need to, though, we go to trial.
