Wrongful Death
Wrongful Death Law Firm
Best Wrongful Death Lawyers in East Texas

Don’t be left empty handed with the devastation of losing a family member due to negligence of another party. Negem & Worthington can help you take legal action. Life can be turned upside down instantaneously leaving you trying to cope with the sorrow and grief after losing a loved one. Many times, this sudden loss leaves family members to account for their loved ones medical costs, funeral expenses, and lost income and/or health care benefits. Texas’ Wrongful Death Statute allows surviving family members or guardians to bring action against the party whose negligence or wrongful act caused the death of their loved one. The wrongful death suit provides relief to the family members who have been injured emotionally and financially as a result of their loss.

The attorneys at Negem & Worthington strive to let families focus on their emotional recovery while we handle all aspects of the wrongful death case, from investigating the accident to easing the stress of negotiations and trial.

What Should I Do in the Event of the Wrongful Death of a Loved One?

Don’t feel like you cannot get compensation for the wrongful death of a loved one. In Texas, recovery is meant to compensate the family members of the deceased for the incurred damages because of the wrongful death, which may be both economic and non-economic in nature. Damages may include reimbursement or compensation for:

Economic Damages can include:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of future earnings the deceased would have provided for the surviving family members
  • Lost pensions, retirement, gifts, and other benefits
  • Reasonable value of household services

Non-economic Damages can include:

  • Loss of companionship, love, comfort, care, protection, and moral support
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of guidance for children
  • Mental anguish and suffering

Unfortunately, a wrongful death case cannot bring back a loved one that was lost but a wrongful death lawsuit that is successful can provide you and your family with some security in the unforeseen future.

Injury Types

Damage to the spinal cord resulting in what is classified as a complete injury often results in the diminishing of nerve sensation and movement depending on the severity. This injury is defined as paralysis. The victim of this type of injury must deal with physical limitations for the rest of their lives. These limitations often hamper their financial wellbeing as well.
Spinal Injuries
With larger impacts, damaging compression of the spine and spinal cord could lead to broken bones or nerve damage. This type of injury can be a precursor to extensive medical and rehabilitation costs resulting in an impact of the victim’s quality of life for the foreseeable future.
