Holding Negligent Parties And Their Insurers Accountable In Wrongful Death Cases

Many personal injury cases translate to financial hardships and emotional ordeals for all parties involved, including injured victims.

This situation is especially true, and uniquely devastating, when a hit-and-run accident, motorcycle accident or fatal car accident results in the death of a loved one.

Texas law provides for methods of financially compensating surviving family members (parent(s), spouse and/or child(ren)) faced with the loss of a relative. At the Law Offices of Steve Gibbins in Austin, we help families throughout Travis County and statewide to pursue wrongful death claims against negligent parties who cause accidents, and their insurers.

Honest, Straightforward Representation You Can Trust

.

If death has resulted from the negligent conduct of another, then a wrongful death lawsuit may be brought by the surviving spouse, children and parents to recover the following types of damages:

  • Medical expenses resulting from the negligence

  • Financial or pecuniary losses sustained by the survivor(s) (e.g., loss of care, maintenance, support services, advice, counsel and reasonable anticipated financial contributions from the decedent)

  • Damages for the loss of companionship and society with the deceased

  • Mental anguish due to the death of the deceased

  • Loss of inheritance

  • Burial expenses

When the deceased consciously survived for any period of time before dying, then an additional recovery may be had for all of those elements listed above that were applicable to the deceased.

Steve Gibbins offers the care, attention and sympathy that family members in mourning deserve. You can rest assured that your voice will be heard throughout the legal process.
