A wrongful act or negligent act or accident that causes the death of another person is typically referred to as a wrongful death claim. In Texas, these types of lawsuits are filed under the Texas Wrongful Death Statute. Wrongful death claims may be filed by different types of family members of the deceased person, with the surviving spouse, children, and parents being the main claims. Typical causes of wrongful death that are pursued by the attorneys at Park & Durham include automobile accidents, 18 wheeler trucking accidents, train accidents, motorcycle accidents, offshore and maritime accidents, construction and pipeline accidents, drunk driving accidents, and deaths caused by defective products. The types of damages generally recoverable in wrongful death lawsuits are medical expenses before death, loss of wages and future earning capacity, loss of love and companionship, conscious pain and suffering before death, and funeral expenses. Punitive damages are sometimes pursued to punish the wrongdoer and to deter this type of thing from happening again in the future.
