Dallas Wrongful Death Attorney
Rights to Compensation for Wrongful Death in Dallas
If you have lost a family member in an accident which was caused by another person, you may be entitled to recover financial compensation. Texas state law provides two separate types of legal action which can be pursued in this situation: wrongful death claims and survival actions. The former is intended to provide compensation for the losses sustained by the family members of the accident victim, whereas the latter provides compensation to the victim's estate. The compensation in both types of claim, however, will normally go to the surviving family members.
