Corpus Christi, TX - Matthew Garcia and Marcello Saldua Killed in Rollover Accident on N. Port Ave

Losing a child, spouse, or someone else that you love is a devastating event on its own, but a loss like this can feel even more distressing when it was the result of a preventable accident caused by someone else’s carelessness. 

If you have endured the premature loss of a family member due to negligence, you are most likely entitled to financial compensation by way of a wrongful death suit.  

Wrongful death is one that is caused by the negligence, dereliction, action, or inaction of a person or entity.  These deaths include those resulting from untimely or improper medical care, car accidents, premises liability accidents, and dangerous or defective products. 

Pursuing a wrongful death claim in Texas requires the claimant to show proof that the person responsible behaved in a reckless manner and, had they exhibited due care, the accident and subsequent death would not have taken place.  

In Texas parents, children, and spouses of the decedent are entitled to bring a claim of wrongful death on behalf of the victim.  

A car crash lawyer in Corpus Cristi can help you figure out whether you qualify for financial compensation. If you believe your accident was not your fault, you may be eligible to receive financial compensation for mental health care, vehicle repairs, medical bills, and more.
