How does a wrongful death lawsuit work?

When a person suffers a serious injury because of the negligent or intentional actions of another, they usually can file a personal injury claim, which compensates the victim for financial and non-financial losses. However, sometimes the victim dies, and a personal injury lawsuit is not possible. In this case, the surviving family can file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the deceased victim. The process is similar to a personal injury claim. The primary difference is that the “plaintiff” is a member of the victim’s family rather than the victim.

Why do I need a Wrongful Death Attorney?

If a loved one dies due to the negligence or actions of another person or entity, the family will likely receive a call from an insurance company, organization, or corporation offering you a settlement. Many times, these settlements sound very generous, and the victim’s family facing immediate financial needs and dealing with the grief of their loss may accept it without question.

However, these companies are paid to save the people or corporations they represent as much money as possible. Their settlement offering is rarely the amount you deserve and often isn’t even enough to cover all the financial losses or damages you’ve suffered because of the wrongful death. That’s why the Biggs & Greenslade Law Firm is here to ensure you get adequate compensation for the tragic losses you’ve suffered.

Please do not accept a settlement from an insurance company until you’ve contacted us.

What damages can I be reimbursed for?

We can claim for both economic damages as well as non-economic damages. Economic damages are losses that have a definite monetary value. These include:

  • All hospital and medical bills you’ve accumulated because of the injury
  • Cost for the funeral and burial
  • Past and future lost wages that the deceased person can no longer contribute to the family
  • Loss of inheritance the victim would have received

Non-Economic Damages do not have a definite economic value but still deserve compensation. These include:

  • The pain and suffering the victim experienced before he or she passed away
  • Loss of love, care, companionship, emotional stability, and other related “damages” the family will no longer receive from the victim

How Much Does it Cost To Hire Biggs & Greenslade?

The short answer is nothing. Our personal injury attorneys in Tyler, TX, Kaufman, TX, and Henderson, TX, work from a contingency arrangement. Our compensation is contingent upon whether we win your case. If we don’t win, you don’t owe us anything. If we do win, our fee comes out of the total settlement amount so that you pay nothing out of pocket.
