Fight for Justice - File a Claim of Wrongful Death

One of the most tragic accidents that can occur results in the death of a loved one. Unexpected and unprepared, the actions of a person, manufacturer, or entity that results in the wrongful death of another person should be handled in the courts. As a survivor, you are entitled to compensation for your loss, including the loss of support, income, companionship, funeral expenses, and more. By taking aggressive action, you can also hold the responsible party accountable and help prevent incidents like this from taking the life of another person.

At Maloney & Campolo, our personal injury lawyers know how traumatic this time can be for you and seek to make the process as simple as possible. Take the time to grieve and heal while we launch a campaign to recover what you are entitled to.

Can I File A Wrongful Death Claim?

If one person has died due to the legal fault of someone else, then a wrongful death lawsuit can be bought on their behalf. In Texas, this lawsuit is to be filed by a representative of the survivors, usually the executor of their estate but can also include:

  • Surviving spouse, children, or parents;
  • Adult children;
  • Adopted child for an adoptive parent only;
  • Adoptive parents for an adopted child; excepting
  • Siblings filing on behalf of the other.

If anyone besides the executor of the estate seeks to file a wrongful death claim in San Antonio, it must be completed within three months of their death. Filed with the executor, there is two years from the time of death to bring a claim on your behalf. With so little time to act, it is important that you can be sure that your case is in the right hands while you recover from your loss.

What Can I Recover In A Wrongful Death Claim?

Nothing can ever compensate for the untimely death of a loved one, and wrongful death claims are meant to help you cope during this time. The financial amount you may be granted can help ease this time and the financial burden you may otherwise carry.

When you work with our San Antonio wrongful death lawyers, you can recover money aimed at covering lost earning capacity, lost care and support, mental and emotional pain and suffering, loss of companionship, loss of inheritance, and even exemplary damages.
