McAllen Wrongful Death Lawyer

In the aftermath of losing a loved one, you should be spending time with your friends and family – not taking on the burden of a wrongful death case. 
If you lost a loved one in an accident in McAllen that was caused by the negligence of another, you may be entitled to compensation. 
At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our McAllen wrongful death lawyers are ready to help you recover compensation for your losses. Whether you lost a loved one in a car accident, slip and fall, or oilfield accident, the Strong Arm at Loncar Lyon Jenkins can help you.

How Can a McAllen Wrongful Death Attorney Help?

To successfully “win” your case, we must prove that you lost a loved one due to negligence, which may require launching an investigation. It might entail:

  • Speaking to eyewitnesses
  • Consulting accident reconstruction specialists and healthcare professionals
  • Gathering physical evidence from the scene (if possible)
  • Getting photos and videos of the accident scene and your loved one’s injuries (if possible)
  • Requesting traffic camera or security footage
  • Negotiating a fair settlement
  • Filing a lawsuit, if necessary

We could resolve your case either through an insurance claim or a lawsuit.

The Four Elements We Must Establish

With the evidence we find, we must prove the following four statements:

  • The at-fault party had an obligation to keep others (including your loved one) safe. The at-fault party could be a negligent motorist, property owner, or site manager.
  • The at-fault party violated their obligation. This breach could have happened because they drove negligently, failed to maintain a property, or acted carelessly.
  • The at-fault party caused your loved one’s passing.

As a result of losing a loved one, you have financial, physical, and emotional losses.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

You must be the decedent’s surviving spouse, child, or parent to pursue a wrongful death action, according to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 71.004. Additionally, we must prove that because another party acted negligently, your loved one lost their life.

What Damages Can I Pursue?

Losing a loved one not only takes a toll on your mental health, but it can also take a toll on your financial resources. Our team has recovered millions of dollars in compensation since we opened our firm in 1988. Some compensable losses in your case could include:

Funeral Expenses

You deserve to put your loved one to rest without having to cut corners. This category can include compensation for:

  • The burial plot
  • Cremation
  • Floral arrangements
  • Venue reservations
  • The casket

You may be able to include other losses associated with your loved one’s funeral service in your claim.

End-of-Life Healthcare Costs

Your loved one may have required medical treatment before they passed away. Compensation for these medical expenses can include:

  • Residency at hospice
  • Life support
  • Resuscitation
  • Medications
  • Hospitalization
  • Stabilization procedures
  • Treatment

We can take into account your loved one’s health insurance policy to arrive at an accurate estimate.

Loss of Consortium

If you lost your spouse due to another party’s negligence, you could recover compensation for loss of consortium. This award is intended to compensate you for the loss of your partner’s affection and society.

Loss of Parental Guidance

You could recover compensation on behalf of your minor children who lost their parent.

Loss of Household Benefits

If your loved one did various things around your home, like caring for your children or mowing the lawn, we can account for these losses in your case.

You could recover other types of losses not included here, such as loss of income and pain and suffering. It all depends on your situation. Your wrongful death lawyer in McAllen can provide more information on this matter.

How Long Do You Have to File Your Wrongful Death Case in McAllen, TX?

Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003 says that you could have as little as two years from the date of your loved one’s passing to file a lawsuit. This limit is not a long amount of time, as collecting evidence, speaking to witnesses, and identifying the cause of your loved one’s passing can take months.

Do not wait until the last minute to seek legal aid. Doing so could significantly limit your financial recovery options.
