The Benton Law Firm

The Benton Law Firm | Personal Injury Attorney in Dallas, Texas. Injuries are an unfortunately, common fact of life. They injure people every day because of circumstances that are entirely outside their control. Sometimes, these accidents occur even if no one directly caused them. Such as when a storm causes damage to someone’s home or car.

In other cases, however, the way a person acted or failed to act. It may have caused an accident to happen, such as when a homeowner failed to repair their damaged porch, or a driver caused an accident while texting. In these situations, another person’s reckless behavior directly caused an accident, which may result in an injury or monetary loss to you or your loved ones.

I should not force you to pay for the consequences of another person’s actions, especially when you had no part in the resulting accident. When these types of accidents occur, you need an experienced Dallas personal injury lawyer on your side to help you fight back.

FAQs

Q How do I know if I have a wrongful death case?

Determining if you have a legitimate case in the wake of tragedy isn’t pleasant, but it must be done. You must ask yourself if a wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, unskillfulness, or the fault of one party caused the death of your loved one. If it did, then you have a case.

Q What are some examples of this negligence?

Common examples of wrongful death suits include a third-party driving drunk, a negligent 18-wheeler or tractor-trailer driver causing an accident, or a medical malpractice mistake causing a tragic death. These are just a few examples of the numerous wrongful death situations.

Q I am a surviving family member. How do I know if I can file a claim?

Texas state law limits the members of the family who can file a suit. If you are the spouse, surviving child, or parent of the deceased, you may file a claim individually or as a group. Even if you are an adult child, you may still file claims. These stipulations do include adopted children of adoptive parents. You may not file wrongful death claims for siblings, however.

Q What can I be compensated for in a wrongful death claim?

No amount of money will ever bring back the loved one you’ve lost, but you still must be fairly compensated, especially when that loved one was your financial support. You are entitled to compensation for:
• Lost care
• Lost wages from a spouse
• Lost love and companionship
• Mental and emotional pain
• Lost inheritance (damages for what the deceased likely would have contributed)

Q My partner was our financial support. How will I support the family going forward?

We can’t begin to tell you how deeply sorry we are. Losing a loved one is one of the most painful experiences to have in life. The last thing you need to be worrying about right now is how you will support your family moving forward. Under Texas law, you are entitled to:
• The lost earning capacity of your partner
• The lost care they would have provided
• The lost value of likely-made investments, such as inheritances
A good lawyer will ensure that you get every dollar you’re legally entitled to.

Q This event has changed my life. Will I receive compensation?

Negligence that has crippled your ability to live a normal happy life needs to be accounted for. If you file a wrongful death suit, you can seek damages for any of the following:
• Emotional pain and suffering
• Loss of love and companionship
• Lost care provided by a partner
• Lost comfort provided by a partner
• Lost ability to form close relationship
