The most serious of all accidents are those that result in a fatality. Not only does the victim lose their life, but their family must go through extreme pain and suffering as a result of their death. One way in which the family can obtain some form of justice and compensation is by filing a wrongful death claim.

Although there is nothing that can truly compensate for the death of a family member, wrongful death claims can at least cover the financial damages resulting from a fatal accident, as well as hold the liable party accountable for their negligence.

The experienced personal injury attorneys at The Cedrick D. Forrest Law Firm can handle your wrongful death claim in order to maximize your compensation for any damages you may have suffered due to the loss of a loved one by an accident or negligence of any kind.​

what is a wrongful death?

Wrongful death is when a person is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another party.

In Texas, those who were dependent on, or a beneficiary of, may be entitled to monetary damages.

Wrongful deaths can occur in situations such as:

  • Emergency Room Medical Malpractice: Wrongful death lawsuits can stem from hospital workers' negligence in the emergency room, such as performing surgical errors, misdiagnosing a health condition, or prematurely discharging a patient

  • Nursing Home Medical Malpractice: Nursing homes are responsible for an increasing number of wrongful deaths in Texas and throughout the nation. Wrongful death occurs in nursing homes and other extended-care facilities due to abuse, neglect, and falls among other causes.

  • Anesthesia Malpractice: If an anesthesiologist fails in their professional responsibilities and administers a fatal, anesthetic dosage.

  • Vehicle Accidents: Automobile companies may be held responsible for defective products in their automobile, while trucking companies may be held accountable for truck accidents if their employee breaks trucking regulations.
