What is wrongful death?

When a person or party’s negligent or irresponsible actions lead to the death of another individual, the victim’s surviving family can take legal action and file a “wrongful death” lawsuit against the responsible party. Although damages recovered in a wrongful death lawsuit cannot replace the life of a loved one, they can help to lessen the financial burden associated with his or her passing, such as make up for lost income or financial support.

You don’t have to go through this incredibly emotional and stressful time alone. For more information about a wrongful death lawsuit, contact the Dallas personal injury lawyers of the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter at (214) 457-1668 and schedule a free consultation.
