If a parent, child or spouse has suffered a wrongful death, you may be able to make a claim and receive some compensation to help you through this difficult time. Getting help from a competent attorney such as myself is very important to receiving the compensation that you deserve.
Some common circumstances where wrongful death claims are pursued include:
- A traffic accident that resulted in death
- An altercation between the deceased and another party that resulted in death
- A drowning death in an unsecured pool
An Attorney On Your Side
A wrongful death claim can be pursued against any responsible party. However, there must be a clear casual link between the actions of the accused and the death of the victims. For example, if an individual dies in a car accident, we must prove that the negligence and/or recklessness of the accused was a proximate cause of the injuries and death. Filing a wrongful death claim in Fort Worth by an attorney with experience in personal injury cases, can make all the difference.
Taking another example, in the case of a drowning death from an unsecured pool (this usually only applies to children who don’t understand the risk), it is the responsibility of the owner of the pool (or any other attractive nuisance) to secure the area if there is reason to believe that children could be enticed to enter. However, if the pool owner took reasonable care and precaution to secure the area, it is unlikely that a wrongful death can be claimed.
