Fatal Auto Accidents in Texas

In Texas, the tragic reality is that nearly 375 lives are lost each month due to vehicular accidents. Many of these accidents could have been avoided, leaving families to confront the devastating aftermath of losing loved ones due to the actions of negligent or careless drivers. Fatal incidents on the road frequently result from excessive speeding, the distractions of modern technology engaging drivers, and aggressive driving tactics.

The period following the loss of a family member is fraught with grief and confusion. Yet, it’s also a time when taking legal steps becomes crucial. In Texas, the legal system allows families of victims to file wrongful death claims against those whose actions led to their untimely demise. This legal avenue offers a glimmer of hope, providing financial relief for the various damages incurred during such a distressing time.

What Damages Are Pursuable?

When a fatal car accident occurs, families find themselves at a crossroads of sorrow and financial burden. Texas law stipulates a window of two years from the date of the accident or the death of a loved one for families to initiate a wrongful death claim. Such claims serve as a means for families to recover both economic and non-economic damages as they try to rebuild their lives. Economic damages typically include:

  • The medical costs incurred prior to the passing,
  • Funeral and burial expenses,
  • Loss of the deceased’s financial contributions,
  • And the loss of potential future earnings.

Beyond the tangible losses, non-economic damages open a pathway for families to seek compensation for:

  • The emotional anguish experienced,
  • Loss of guidance and support once provided by the deceased,
  • The pain and suffering endured,
  • Loss of companionship and
  • Loss of consortium.

Seeking help from a San Antonio wrongful death lawyer early on can significantly improve your chances of securing justice and adequate compensation for these extensive losses.
