Financial Recovery in Fort Worth Fatal Car Accident Cases
Your family has our deepest condolences for the loss you experienced. You also have our commitment to helping your family fight to financial recovery.
We help your family recover the cost of:
- Your loved one’s medical bills
- Their funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of their financial contributions
- Loss of their domestic contributions
We also fight for financial recovery for pain and suffering and mental and emotional anguish. We will collect various pieces of evidence, including receipts, records, and reports that validate your case and document the costs your family incurs.
Family Members Who Qualify for Financial Recovery
The loss of a loved one affects everyone who loved the decedent. While many people are impacted by the loss, Texas law only allows certain family members to recover damages via a wrongful death insurance claim or lawsuit.
Qualifying family members include:
- The deceased person’s spouse
- The deceased person’s children
- The deceased person’s parents
If a case has not been filed within three months of the date of the loved one’s passing, a family representative can begin legal action unless specifically instructed not to do so. Our law firm will clarify the rights of specific family members.
Leave the At-Fault Driver’s Insurance Company to Us
Most personal injury and wrongful death cases are settled out of court when the evidence points to liability. When we handle your family’s case, we will not hesitate to go to trial if needed.
We will work hard to resolve your case with a settlement, though, rather than a lengthy and uncertain trial. Our law firm will field settlement offers and review each one’s merits. Our familiarity with wrongful death and insurance law in Texas can help you avoid:
- Lowball settlement offers
- Speedy but flawed offers
- Bad faith practices
We make sure to account for your losses. We also make sure your health care team provides us with a prognosis that defines the care you will require in the future.
These are important parts of the negotiation process because they ensure your case is not undervalued or underpaid.
How Texas’ Statute of Limitations Affects Your Case
In Fort Worth, qualifying family members have a limited amount of time to file a wrongful death lawsuit. According to Texas law, you generally have two years to file your lawsuit with the statutory clock starting on the date of your loved one’s demise—even if that date differs from the date of the car accident that led to their demise.
With sufficient notice from you, we ensure compliance with the statute of limitations. Non-compliance could mean:
- You inadvertently forfeit your right and ability to file your lawsuit
- Your lawsuit will be dismissed without ever being heard
The insurance company that represents the at-fault driver is aware of the statute of limitations, so we make sure your lawsuit is filed within the allotted time.
