The attorneys at Houston Injury Lawyers, PLLC, have the experience and legal resources you need to naconfidently vigate the most challenging car accident claims wCar accidents can result in significant economic losses and severe injuries.
When a person suffers an injury due to another party’s negligence or intentional actions in Houston or Sugar Land, the injured person has the right to take legal action in the form of a personal injury claim against the at-fault party. However, if the victim suffered catastrophic injuries, they may be unable to pursue legal action on their own behalf. In addition, if the victim does not survive their injury, their surviving family would need to pursue a wrongful death claim instead of the personal injury claim the victim could have filed had they survived.
To successfully bring a wrongful death cause of action, the plaintiff typically must show the following:
1) The death of a human being
2) The death was caused by another’s negligence or with intent to cause harm
3) The survival of family members who are suffering monetary injury as a result of the death
4) The appointment of a personal representative for the decedent’s estate
