Compensation After A Fatality
Losing a family member in an accident or in any type of attack is gut-wrenching for most people. In addition to emotional pain, you and your family may experience financial losses after the death of your loved one, too, because of:
- Final medical bills for the deceased
- Lost income that the deceased person used to contribute to the family
- Funeral and burial costs, which may be substantial
- Loss of companionship
If your loved one died because of someone’s negligence or deliberate harm, you may be able to recover compensation through a wrongful death claim. I am attorney Ramon E. Gonzalez at Law Office Of Ramon E. Gonzalez, P.C., a trial lawyer in Dallas who represents spouses, children and other eligible plaintiffs in wrongful death cases. Let me evaluate your family member’s fatality and determine whether there is cause for a wrongful death claim.
Is There Sufficient Evidence For A Wrongful Death Claim?
When I review your family’s losses after your loved one has been killed in a crash, a fall or a violent event in a public place, I may determine that you have legal justification for bringing a wrongful death claim or lawsuit against the responsible property owner or managers. If I take your case, I will begin a prompt and thorough investigation.
Your family may be preoccupied at this time with memorial service plans and grieving together. I am respectful of people’s need to mourn. At the same time, I can initiate a behind-the-scenes investigation to gather and preserve evidence of liability for a wrongful death case. My timeliness can improve your case. For example, I can start subpoenaing surveillance video footage while it is still available.
Your Advocate For A Wrongful Death Claim
For many people who lose loved ones in accidental circumstances, wrongful death claims are about more than money. A judgment against a negligent property owner, security company or any responsible party can help bring closure as well as reassurance that there will not be similar future deaths in the same place.
