If you are the survivor of a family member who has suffered a tragic death, you have options. Your Wrongful Death Lawyer in East Texas can file one of two types of claims for you: survival claims or wrongful death claims.
The surviving spouse or family members of a victim file a wrongful death claim. This claim allows them to receive compensation for their emotional and financial damages. The restitution amount depends on the loss the family suffers as a result of the death. Recoverable damages include:
Loss of expected earnings the victim would have contributed to the family had he or she survived
Loss of the deceased family member’s love and affection
Loss of inheritance if the wrongful death discontinued the receipt of the contribution
Loss of services the loved one would have contributed
Survival claims are the claims of the deceased. These claims aim to gain restitution for the pain and suffering endured while alive. They may recover damages the victim underwent before their death, such as:
Costs of medical bills incurred from treatment before his or her death
Funeral and burial expenses
Lost wages the victim could not earn from the time of the injury to the time of their death
Physical and emotional suffering the victim experienced after the injury until their death
As an experienced Personal Injury Attorney, Blake Bailey will fight for you. He will do everything possible to win the restitution you deserve.
In court, the jury will ask a series of questions to decide the survival damages owed to the family. They may ask questions like:
To what degree was the victim conscious while suffering?
How severe was his or her suffering?
For how long did they suffer?
After that, the jury will assess the emotional and financial loss of the surviving family. This process helps put a monetary value on the invaluable loss of you and your loved ones.
