Wrongful Death Attorneys
When a person engages in reckless or negligent behavior, whether it be on the road, at a job site or anywhere else, the results can be catastrophic for others. From drunk drivers to negligent doctors, inattentive pharmacists and careless property owners, a haphazard approach in individual responsibilities can cause devastating, even life-altering, effects to another person and their family.

Causes of Wrongful Deaths, Injuries, and Fatality Accidents
Wrongful death results from negligent or unintentional acts. In these cases, the action to claim damages and compensation is filed by the estate of the deceased victim or his family.
At Liles White PLLC, we represent parties whose loved ones have died as a result of:
- Auto accidents

When it comes to fatality accidents, the wrongful death attorneys at Liles White PLLC offer valuable assistance.
Filing a Lawsuit for Wrongful Death
Four requirements must be met before a lawsuit for wrongful death may be filed in court:
- The negligent or reckless act of one person resulted in the death of another individual;
- Evidence shows that the negligent or reckless act was the proximate cause of the death;
- Evidence shows financial and other loss resulting from the death of said individual; and
- The victim’s immediate family members or dependents must file the action.
It should be noted that there is a time limit within which to file a lawsuit for compensation arising from wrongful deaths or fatality accidents. Under Texas law, a wrongful death lawsuit must be filed within two years from the date of the accident. It is crucial for the family members and/or dependents of the deceased to engage the services of an attorney as soon as possible to avoid their claims being barred by the applicable statutes of limitation.
