Areas Of Our Practice

Assisting families following the loss of a loved one

The emotional turmoil associated with the loss of a loved one in a fatal accident can leave a family unsure of what to do next. Usually, family members are so involved in making funeral arrangements and grieving over their loss that seeking compensation from the individual or entity responsible for their loved one’s death might be the last thing on their mind.

When a person dies from injuries suffered in a fatal boating accident or fatal car crash, the victim’s survivors might have a cause of action against the party whose negligence caused or contributed to the cause of the fatal accident. A wrongful death case is a cause of action in which relatives of the deceased may obtain compensation against a negligent party for damages, including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral expenses
  • Lost support from the deceased
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of future earnings

Wrongful death actions are not limited only to cases in which the victim died in an accident. A cause of action for damages may be filed in any situation in which the victim’s death was the result of the negligence of another party. For example, relatives of a patient in a hospital whose death during surgery is attributable to an act of medical malpractice by a surgeon might have a cause of action for wrongful death.

Attorneys and staff at the Mesquite, Texas, law office of Ted B. Lyon & Associates understand how difficult it can be following the sudden and unexpected death of a loved one. The compassionate and caring attorneys can help a family through the difficult decisions that must be made following the loss of a loved one in a fatal accident. If you believe that a loved one might have died through the negligence of another person or entity, contact Ted B. Lyon & Associates to learn more about the compensation to which you might be entitled.
