How Do Texas Courts Measure Damages From Wrongful Death?

After losing a loved one due to someone else's carelessness, discussing your financial concerns may be necessary. No amount of money is worth their life, but you and your family are likely to face unexpected expenses following the tragedy. A wrongful death claim could help you through the economic impact of your loss.

The attorneys at Kyle Law Firm treat wrongful death cases with the respect and care they deserve. Based in New Braunfels, our law firm understands that your financial concerns are valid.

What Does A Court Consider?

Texas courts consult economic experts to base awards on a variety of losses and costs, including:

  • Funeral expenses and end-of-life medical bills
  • Decreased household income, calculated according to the deceased's most recent and future earning capacity
  • Loss of companionship, love and support, for which family members may incur extra bills or suffer total sentimental loss
  • Emotional suffering and the costs of therapy

The other party will likely hire their own lawyer to argue against your claim. It is essential to work with a trial lawyer with a drive to win your case and achieve a record of success.

How Much Is Your Claim Worth?

For many people with a wrongful death claim, it is important to estimate the potential outcome of their case. You may want to know whether a claim would be worth your time and emotional stress.
