Hiring a Wrongful Death Lawyer

For a case like the one above, a wrongful death suit can be filed for a death that comes as a result of a car accident caused by a red light runner. Texas law allows the spouse, children, and/or parents of a deceased person to file a wrongful death suit. The statute of limitations requires you to file a wrongful death suit within two years of the date on which a loved one died.

To file a wrongful death suit, contact a lawyer to begin the process. If you would like to file a wrongful death suit with a personal injury lawyer from Sutliff & Stout, Injury & Accident Law Firm, feel free to give us a call at (713) 987-7111 or contact us online to discuss your injury or wrongful death claim.
