There is nothing more difficult than losing a loved one. And when someone is killed because of the negligence, fault or carelessness of another person or entity, surviving family members are often left grieving, lost, frustrated, traumatized and helpless. The pain can be unbearable. But those same surviving family members may also have a claim to hold the responsible party accountable.

The lawyers at Sorrels Law can help. Although monetary compensation won’t relieve the pain of losing your loved one, you should not have to bear the financial burden of this loss on your own.  You may have a claim for wrongful death that will force the parties at fault to be held financially accountable for the people they have so significantly affected.  We are here to be your ally and to inquire, investigate, interrogate and initiate a claim on your behalf. But you should not wait.

Others Are Investigating - You Should Be Too - Don’t Wait

When someone dies as the result of another’s conduct, an immediate investigation almost always occursOften the family members – who are most affected by the tragedy – do not have a representative involved in the investigation and valuable evidence may be lost.  It may seem unnatural to want to find out the root cause of the incident, but it is often critical to determine what occurred so that something like this never happens again.  Making sure no one else’s family member is hurt or killed is important. Saving lives matters.  So you don’t want to wait to pursue an investigation and determination as to what exactly occurred.  Call the lawyers at Sorrels Law to help you. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Wrongful Death Claim?

When a person dies from the hands of another, the spouse, parents and children have a right to bring a claim to all those responsible who caused the death. These claims can arise out of deaths involving: 

Who May Make a Wrongful Death Claim?

Each state has different laws as to who is eligible to bring a claim for wrongful death of a loved one. Typically, family members who can bring claims include spouses, parents, and children. Also, certain states (including Texas) allow the estate of the victim to bring an action to recover for medical expenses, funeral expenses, and conscious pain and suffering. To bring a wrongful death claim, the family must prove a person or company caused or could have prevented their loved one’s death. If that is proven, the family is entitled to receive monetary compensation for the loss as they suffered. The lawyers at Sorrels Law know how to bring the right claims to maximize the recovery our clients are entitled to. Those damages can include: 

How Long Do I Have to Bring a Wrongful Death Claim?

It is possible to wait too long to bring a claim.  And if you wait too long, you may lose your opportunity to seek any compensation for your loss.  In most cases, the statute of limitations to bring a wrongful death claim is two years.  But this is not always the case.  Often, for example in medical malpractice cases, the time is much shorter and may only be a few days.  So, you should not wait.  We encourage you to act as quickly as possible.  Give our team a call today at 713-496-1100. We can help you analyze your claim to decide if and when it should be filed.
