When people are seriously injured due to another person’s or party’s negligence, they’re often eligible to file injury claims to compensate them for their accident-related expenses, including their medical bills and lost wages.

But in some cases, negligence-related accidents result in injuries that prove fatal. When that happens, surviving family members may face significant financial difficulties, especially if the decedent was the primary income-earner for their household.

At Daniel Stark Injury Lawyers, it’s our goal to recover damages for accident victims and their families—including when accidents lead to death. Our Texas wrongful death lawyers have helped many families after their loved ones were killed in different types of common accidents, including:

  1. Car accidents—All drivers share a responsibility for keeping the roads safe for themselves and for others. When drivers speed, get behind the wheel while intoxicated, or become distracted, they can be held liable if they hurt or kill someone.
  2. Work-related accidents—Industrial and construction-related jobs often pay well, but they come with risks—especially when employers fail to provide adequate equipment, training, and oversight for workers. Negligence can result in serious, often life-threatening injuries in those types of jobs.
  3. Truck accidents—Big trucks aren’t just ordinary vehicles driven by private citizens—they’re investments for big companies, and they’re regulated by an entire industry and government guidelines. When people are killed in big truck accidents, multiple parties can be considered responsible.

It’s important to act as soon as possible if your loved one was killed in a negligence-related accident. Evidence can disappear, and the insurance company will begin preparing its defense. A free consultation from an experienced attorney is the first step toward getting the justice your family deserves.
