A wrongful death action is a civil suit brought by the surviving family members. Unlike a criminal suit, the defendant is not entitled to immunity or the right to refuse to testify. This makes it easier for the surviving family member to seek retribution for losses suffered.

Carabin & Shaw has served the injured or family’s of the wrongfully killed in Beaumont since 1992. We won’t charge you a fee unless we win your case. Call or email us today.

When the negligence, carelessness, recklessness, or inaction of a person causes a death this is considered a wrongful death action. Drunk driving, hitting a pedestrian, defective products, and medical malpractice are all instances where a wrongful death may have occurred. Generally, the immediate family members bring the lawsuit for wrongful death. A child whose parent is wrongfully killed will need assistance from an adult guardian in filing the lawsuit. If you believe you may have a wrongful death action call a personal injury lawyer immediately.

A personal injury lawyer can help you at this very stressful time by removing some of the pressure involved in building a case. Some of the damages you may be able to recover include:

  • Medical and funeral expenses:
  • Loss of victim's anticipated earnings and future earnings
  • Loss of benefits - i.e. pension, medical insurance;
  • Loss of any inheritance due to the premature death;
  • Pain and suffering, or mental anguish of the survivors;
  • Loss of care, protection, companionship to the survivors;
  • Punitive damages.

Some of these damages may not be available to you without additional proof of malicious intent. A personal injury lawyer will be able to determine which damages you will be able to recover.
