Helping You After The Loss Of A Loved One
A wrongful death claim cannot replace your loved one, but it can give you and your family financial stability. At Dilley Law Firm, we will advocate for your interests and provide strong and effective guidance during this difficult time in your life.
After a fatal accident, two causes of action may be available when pursuing a legal claim in Texas: a wrongful death claim and a survival action.
Wrongful Death Claims
Parents, spouses, children and heirs can file a wrongful death lawsuit after a loved one is killed due to someone else’s negligence. A claim can help families recover damages after the loss of a family member. This can include damages for any injuries suffered by the surviving family as a direct result of the death of the family member and provide financial and emotional relief.
Under the Texas survival statute, the estate, heirs or legal representative can bring a survival action against the party responsible for the death of a loved one. This claim can include damages for the victim’s death along with pain and suffering endured prior to passing away.
Our lawyers are experienced in handling complex probate matters. We have represented individuals in probate court involving all estate matters, including probate litigation and contesting the will due to fraud or duress, following the death of a loved one.
