San Antonio wrongful death attorney
We can help your family seek justice
The unexpected loss of a loved one is a very painful experience. Suddenly, a spouse is gone. Or a parent. Or a child. And it's much worse if your loved one's death happened because someone was negligent or careless. The San Antonio wrongful death lawyers at Tracey & Fox can help you hold that person responsible.
A wrongful death is one that is caused by the negligent, reckless or careless actions of another person. For example, a distracted driver can cause a fatal accident. A careless doctor can prescribe medications that lead to a deadly drug interaction. A wrongful death can also occur in cases of product liability, premises liability or criminal acts.
The loss of your loved one can also have a big financial impact on your family. There is the cost of any medical care your loved needed before passing away. There are funeral costs. There is the loss of income, if your loved one helped support the family.
In a wrongful death suit, you can seek financial compensation for medical and funeral expenses, pain and suffering, loss of companionship, loss of care, advice or support and loss of inheritance. In some cases, punitive damages can also be sought. People, companies and government agencies can be held liable.
