Fatal accidents are an unfortunate fact of life everywhere in the country, including Texas. Too often, however, someone died because of the actions or inactions of one or more people, thus putting those people at fault. As a result, a wrongful death lawsuit is likely if the fact of negligence can be proven in court. A wrongful death claim allows surviving family members to seek compensation from the party deemed most responsible for a fatal accident. The types of accidents and fatal events include car crashes, negligent acts of medical malpractice and dangerous properties. Filing a wrongful death case, however, can be challenging.
Fortunately, the law firm of Jerry D. Andrews, P.C., has been handling such cases for years. It has helped the majority of plaintiffs - typically, surviving family members - recover compensation and damages for losses incurred from accidents or other actions that claimed their loved ones.
These claims must be filed in a timely manner - within two years in Texas. Filing after that period usually results in claim dismissal. This is why Jerry D. Andrews, P.C., tells its clients to allow them to file civil claims on the clients' behalf as soon as possible while allowing the justice system to criminally prosecute those who are responsible.
Jerry D. Andrews, P.C., takes time in investigating each case to better understand how it occurred. Its attorneys consider several factors whether it is distracted driving, wrong-site surgery or exposed electrical outlets that posed electrocution hazards. If the other party was responsible, he or she can be held legally accountable for a victim's death.
