The Law Offices of Francisco G. Medina represents members of the Houston community who have lost family members due to wrongful death. What is wrongful death? Wrongful death refers to a death that was the fault of another person.
The law considers deaths resulting from a variety of circumstances to be wrongful deaths, including death caused by a health care professional’s failure to diagnose a fatal disease, the manufacturing of a dangerous or defective product, the construction of an unsafe building or structure, or an accident caused by a drunk driver.
Typically, a surviving family member or beneficiary of the decedent will file the wrongful death lawsuit. These lawsuits may be filed for a number of reasons, including the pursuit of monetary damages to cover wages lost due to the death of the family member. Wrongful death lawsuits are also filed to recover funeral expenses, lost death benefits such as insurance, loss of inheritance due to untimely death, to recover for loss of companionship, protection, or care by the decedent, and to make up for the pain, mental anguish, and suffering sustained by the survivor.
