One of the types of cases that we handle quite often, unfortunately, are wrongful death cases resulting from catastrophic situations. The family members who are left behind in a situation like that are often devastated and don’t know what they should do. One of the most important things that you need to understand is to act quickly. In Texas, when someone passes away, the people who have a wrongful death claim are the parents of the person who passed away, the spouse of the person who passed away, and any children of the person who passed away. Of course, that’s not always the same in other states. In New Mexico, where we also handle wrongful death cases, it’s a little bit different than that, but we’d be happy to walk you through that.
