Holding Negligent Parties Accountable For The Death Of Your Loved One
Losing a loved one is never an easy experience to go through. However, losing a loved one due to the negligent or reckless behavior of another can be particularly difficult to process.
At the Law Offices of Anthony B. Cantrell, we know you cannot put a price on the loss of a loved one. However, holding the at-fault party responsible can bring closure and much-needed financial relief. You deserve to seek compensation for the loss you have experienced. We aggressively protect your rights in doing so.
The Specifics Of Wrongful Death Cases In Texas
While similar to other personal injury cases, wrongful death cases have certain limitations to abide by. In Texas, only the following individuals can generally file a wrongful death lawsuit:
- The spouse of the deceased individual
- The children of the deceased individual
- The parents of the deceased individual
These individuals can seek damages, or compensation, that account for lost income, lost benefits, lost potential for future inheritance, medical and funeral expenses and more. When you meet with us, we can advise on the compensation to pursue as well as the timeline to do so in. In Texas, eligible individuals generally must file a wrongful death lawsuit within two years of the incident.
Taking A Personalized Approach In Sensitive Situations
After a fatal car crash, workplace accident or another incident, you may be uncertain whether to pursue your case due to concern of reliving the accident and its aftermath. In recognition of this, we take the time to sit down with you, discuss your case and thoroughly explain your options. It is our goal to keep this process as efficient as possible.
We have decades of experience in protecting the best interests of our clients. While we work to resolve cases swiftly through settlements when possible, we will not back down at the prospect of taking your case to court when it could benefit you.
