Texas Wrongful Death Attorneys
The sudden death of a loved one is hard to bear. When that death is caused by the negligence or misconduct of another person, the survivors need somewhere to turn for counsel and support. At the Texas law firm of Loncar Associates our attorneys have been helping families grieving over the wrongful death of a loved one since 1988. We have the knowledge, the resources, and the experience to obtain the compensation you need to move forward after a tragedy. If your loved one died because of an accident caused by negligence, contact an experienced wrongful death lawyer. Call us to learn if you have a case.
Wrongful death lawsuits are different from other personal injury claims. The suit is brought on behalf of the survivors or the estate of the deceased rather than the victim. Calculating the cost of a death requires vocational and economic experts to determine the contribution of the decedent to the family economy had he or she lived. They determine the non-economic contribution of the deceased. This includes emotional support, help with chores, and attendance at kids’ sporting events—all of which are difficult to quantify. Another difference is the possibility of a survival action, which compensates the estate of the deceased for pain and suffering, medical costs, and other expenses incurred between the accident and the death. Our wrongful death lawyers are well-versed in all legal issues that apply in wrongful death and survivor actions.
Anything that causes injury can also cause death. We have helped families whose loved ones suffered fatal accidents in:
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Car crashes
- DWI accidents
- Construction site accidents
Our lawyers handle all the details of a wrongful death action so that you can focus on taking care of your family. We make sure you are connected with the resources and services you need. We are your strong arm in difficult times. For the convenience of clients, we maintain six offices throughout Texas in Dallas, Wichita Falls, El Paso, McAllen, Tyler, and Beaumont.
