Compassionate Attorneys, Here for You And Your Family
The loss of a loved one is a terrible thing under any circumstance. But when your loved one has been killed due to someone else’s negligence, your grief is compounded by the fact that your loved one’s death might have been preventable if the other party had only acted responsibly. If you have lost a beloved family member in any of those types of situations or in any other instance when someone else has been negligent, a wrongful death claim is a primary avenue to recover damages. Damages in a wrongful death can include compensation for the pain and suffering of the victim as well as that of the victim’s surviving spouse and/or children.
No amount of money will make up for the untimely loss of your loved one. Our wrongful death attorneys understand that. But a wrongful death suit isn’t just about money — it’s about holding the ones who caused your loved one’s death responsible. The wrongful death attorneys at Jim Ross Law Group can help you gain some closure by doing just that. Call or contact our Fort Worth attorneys today for a free consultation.
Probate In A Wrongful Death Case Estate Law, An Important Consideration in Wrongful Death
In order to file a lawsuit on behalf of someone who has died due to the negligence of another party, there must be a probate action to open the deceased person’s estate and appoint someone to represent the estate in the lawsuit. This person is often the executor named in the deceased person’s will, but it can also be any suitable person (such as a surviving spouse or adult child) if the deceased person did not have a will. Jim Ross Law Group is a full-service personal injury law firm. Our wrongful death attorneys handle probate cases regularly and can take care of the necessary probate so that you can pursue the party responsible for the death of your loved one.
