Richardson Wrongful Death Lawyer

Let MAS Law Firm Help You Find Justice for Your Loved One

Few things are worse than losing a loved one in a preventable accident. You likely may have many questions about how to move forward, let alone how to handle the abrupt changes that follow a death. Wrongful death is defined as a fatality resulting from a “wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, unskillfulness, or default." It is important that you hold the right people responsible for the untold damage they caused. MAS Law Firm can help you build a strong case to obtain a favorable result.

When to File a Lawsuit

While not all fatalities are preventable and worthy of seeking damages, those which are can be difficult to prove. MAS Law Firm offers free consultations to help you better understand which angle to take and how to proceed. We have earned millions of dollars in damage awards for our clients, and we know what it takes to strategize effectively.

Wrongful death lawsuits can be filed for:

It is important to note that wrongful death lawsuits are not criminal offenses. If a crime was committed that led to a death, it will be prosecuted by the state rather than brought forth by the loved ones of the victim. The statute of limitations for a wrongful death lawsuit is two years. The sooner you get started, the better your chances will be of gathering all the right evidence and building a strong case for a favorable outcome.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

Unlike some states, Texas allows many parties to file a wrongful death claim on behalf of a loved one. These parties include a surviving spouse, children of the deceased, and parents, including adoptive parents. These parties have the option to file a claim together or one of them may choose to file a claim alone. A representative of the deceased estate is also eligible to file a claim if no family member has filed one within three months of the deceased’s passing, as long as a family member has not requested that no claim be filed.
