Wrongful Death Attorney in Corpus Christi, Texas
A claim for wrongful death may be brought for the loss of a loved one due to the negligence or recklessness of another person.
This type of personal injury lawsuit can be brought by anyone who is a:
- family member
- financial dependent
- life partner
- one who has a financial loss from the death
A wrongful death suit may name any party that contributed to the cause of death, and is frequently seen in cases of:
- Medical malpractice where a physician acts negligently
- Auto accidents involving reckless drivers
- Product liability where a manufacturer fails to exercise reasonable care
If the actions of the liable party caused the death, then an award may be obtained for direct losses suffered by the claimants including:
- Loss of support and family income
- Loss of companionship
- Emotional distress
- Funeral expenses
Although a damage award may offset some of the losses, it cannot replace the life of a loved one or family member. Survivors are entitled to some compensation for this tragic event, and even if the liable party did not intend to cause significant harm or death, they will be held accountable for their actions.

An award of damages will not replace your loss, but may allow your life to be restored economically.
