Jourdanton, Texas Wrongful Death Lawyers

Personal Injury Attorneys for Families of Accident Victims in Atascosa County and Karnes County

Jourdanton, Texas Wrongful Death Lawyers

The death of a loved one is perhaps the most traumatic experience a person can endure. The emotional toll is often more severe when a beloved family member is killed due to the negligent actions of someone else. While no amount of compensation can make up for the loss of someone you love, it can aid as you rebuild your life, and defray the financial cost left by the absence of a spouse and/or parent whose income is now gone.

At BCP Criminal Defense Attorneys, we fight for families who have suffered the worst type of loss imaginable. Our dedicated personal injury lawyers hold any and all parties responsible for the death of your loved one accountable for their actions. This includes car wrecks, trucking collisions, motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice, and unsafe working conditions. We will pursue maximum compensation as part of a wrongful death lawsuit so you get the financial award you deserve.

Filing a Wrongful Death Claim

Texas law states the surviving spouse, children, and parents of a wrongful death victim can pursue legal action – individually or collectively – to recover damages. If a willful act, omission, or negligence led to the fatality, both punitive (also known as exemplary) and actual damages may be awarded. Punitive damages are meant as a form of punishment for anyone complicit in wrongful death. All damages are divided among the filing family members.

Wrongful death damages may be awarded to compensate a family for:

  • Lost companionship, care, and guidance;
  • An individual's lost earning capacity for the duration of their projected working years;
  • Mental anguish, and pain and suffering; and
  • Diminished inheritance.

The trusted attorneys at BCP Criminal Defense Attorneys are prepared to file a wrongful death suit on your family's behalf. While the statute of limitations indicates you have up to two years following the death of your loved one to file a claim, if you believe wrongful death occurred, there is no reason to delay. We will provide aggressive representation to either compel an agreeable pre-trial settlement or prevail in a jury trial.

Proving Wrongful Death

Texas law defines the parameters for proving liability in a wrongful death case. Damages may be awarded if an individual or entity displayed neglect, carelessness, unskillfulness, or default. Upon filing your wrongful death claim, the experienced legal team at BCP Criminal Defense Attorneys will work tirelessly to accumulate the evidence necessary to achieve the best possible outcome in your case. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your loved one's death, our thorough investigation may include analysis of police reports, workplace accident reports, driving records, eyewitness accounts, hospital records, criminal history, and statements by the defendant(s).

When you entrust BCP Law with your case, you will see our compassionate client care, diligent preparation, and resolute representation throughout the legal process. We will dedicate our full resources to attain the outcome your family needs.
