What is involved in a wrongful death claim?
We know that the stakes are high for the entire family after the loss of a loved one in a fatal trucking accident. That is why we are extremely thorough in investigating every aspect of the accident to build the strongest case possible and to identify all those who bear responsibility for your tragedy.
Armed with the facts, we have two basic options:
- Pursue a wrongful death claim on behalf of the spouse, children or parents of the victim
- File a survival act claim on behalf of the executor or administrator of the accident victim’s estate
There are many considerations that determine which of these two options best suits your particular case and both are limited as to what specific damages are compensable. At Dallas W. Hartman, P.C., our experienced attorneys offer straightforward answers and sound legal advice to help you make an informed decision.
Should you decide to move forward with a wrongful death or survival act claim, there will be no up-front legal fees or costs for you to pay until we obtain a financial settlement or award in your case. Contact us today for a free consultation.
