Austin Wrongful Death Attorney

Recover Compensation for the Loss of Your Family Member

The worst accidents that can possibly happen are those that end a life. One person's negligence can cause an accident that cuts another person's life short, leaving the family and loved ones of the deceased to mourn their tragic loss and incur substantial financial damages in the form of medical treatment prior to the death or funeral expenses as well. Perhaps you are the family member or dependent of someone who has recently been killed in an accident. If so, you have come to the right place for help. Melendez Law Firm, PC can help you file a wrongful death claim to hold the liable party accountable for his or her actions and for your damages.

Wrongful death damages can include:

  • Medical bills accrued before the victim's death
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of companionship / consortium
  • Grief counseling fees
  • Pain and suffering

Why file a wrongful death claim?

At Melendez Law Firm, PC, we understand the difficult time that you and your family are experiencing. We also understand that no amount of money can compensate for the loss of your loved one. We do stand for justice, however, and we are ready to help you file a claim against the person who caused your loved one's death. Wrongful death claims are a form of justice and accountability, as well as a means of recovering financial and emotional damages.

Just as with the statute of limitations on personal injury claims, wrongful death claims must be filed within two years of the person's death. You must also be able to prove that your loved one's death was the direct result of the accident and that he or she was not responsible for causing the accident. An Austin personal injury lawyer from our firm can help you file a successful claim and recover the full amount of your damages. Contact our firm today for more information!
