3 Key Differences of Wrongful Death vs Personal Injury Claim
When someone dies due to the fault of another person or entity, the survivors may be able to bring a wrongful death lawsuit in Frisco, Texas. Claims for personal injury and wrongful death have many similarities. In both actions, someone suffers an injury. Here are some of the key differences of a wrongful death claim:
- Claim brought by statutorily defined immediate family members (surviving spouse, children or parents) those who were wholly, or partially, dependent on the deceased for support.
- Compensated for mental anguish including the emotional pain, torment, and suffering and loss of relationship including loss of the positive benefits flowing from the love, affection, protection, emotional support, services, companionship, care, and society by the surviving spouse, children, and/or parents.
