Tyler Wrongful Death Attorney
Losing a family member as a result of the negligence or recklessness of another person or entity is difficult for any family to deal with. Naturally, survivors of the victim want and deserve justice for the death of their loved one. While the person who caused the death of the victim may face criminal prosecution, they can also be sued in a wrongful death action. The law allows survivors of deceased victims to claim monetary compensation from the person who caused the wrongful death of their loved ones. The law also provides a timeframe within which you can bring a wrongful death lawsuit. If you have lost a family member because of another person’s actions, a Tyler wrongful death attorney at Craft Law Firm can help you before time runs out.

What Kind of Compensation Can I Expect?
The facts of your case will determine what kind of compensation you can expect. The law permits survivors to make a claim for economic, non-economic, and punitive damages. Economic damages cover tangible expenses like funeral costs and loss of the deceased’s income. Non-economic damages cover intangible losses like a spouse’s loss of their companion or a child’s loss of parental guidance. In some states, where it is found that the responsible party actions were grossly negligent, you may also claim punitive damages.
In cases where the deceased did not die immediately from the accident, you may also be able to get compensation for their conscious pain and suffering before dying through what is called a survival action.
What you are entitled to will depend on the circumstances of your case and the laws of your state. An experienced Tyler personal injury lawyer will be able to advise you and guide you based on your particular facts of your case.
How Can a Tyler Wrongful Death Attorney Help?
An experienced attorney can help you navigate the legal process to get compensation for the wrongful death of your loved one. In certain cases, getting justice may not be straightforward either because there are multiple parties responsible or several laws must be relied upon. Your lawyer will have the resources to investigate the facts around your loved one’s death, gather relevant evidence and get testimony from experts to build the strongest case possible. You can’t do all this by yourself when you are grieving.
How Much Does an Attorney Charge?
You may be worried about the cost of an attorney, but this shouldn’t keep you from seeking justice for your loved one. Attorneys offer different types of fee structures including contingency fees. In a contingency fee structure, you don’t have to worry about paying any fees unless you win. If you win, your attorney gets paid a percentage of the value of the compensation you receive. Craft Law Firm handles all cases on a contingency fee basis and we are committed to getting you the best possible outcome in your case.
