- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Product liability
- Medical errors and malpractice
- Workplace accidents
- Accidents on someone else’s property
These accidents can leave you without the care and support of your loved one and struggling to make ends meet. An unexpected loss can mean medical bills, funeral costs and other expenses.
Making A Claim In Texas
Making a wrongful death claim can be complex and overwhelming. It is essential to have an experienced wrongful death attorney support you as you make this type of claim.
The first step in the wrongful death process is determining who can file a lawsuit. The right to file a wrongful death lawsuit in Texas belongs to the decedent’s spouse, children and parents. If there are no surviving relatives, the right to file a lawsuit belongs to the decedent’s estate.
Depending on the circumstances of the case, it can take several months to complete the process of making a wrongful death claim. How long it takes will depend on whether you can settle out of court or if the case must go to trial. With Ryan Nguyen Attorney At Law, you will have experienced support through every step of the process.
