Dealing With the Unfortunate Events of A Fatal Accident
There is nothing more painful than losing a loved one in an unexpected accident. Following a tragic loss, families are left to deal with timely decisions related to finances and other potentially heavy circumstances. Making rational decisions is often difficult given the distress and emotional instability of a sudden death. It is by no means the role of the family to handle these types of complicated situations on their own. Our role at the Law Office of Javier Martinez, Jr., P.C. is to represent you and your family while handling the legal matters related to your financial security and peace of mind.
How A Fatal Accident Lawyer Can Help You and Your Family
One of the first steps you can make is to contact our office. You and your family undoubtedly have questions related to the actions that need to be taken, as well as whether the employer was at fault. Upon contacting the Law Office of Javier Martinez, Jr., you will be given the answers, advice, and support you need to overcome this tragic situation. As a fatal accident lawyer for over nineteen years, our office has dealt with intricate cases involving employer denial and their attempt to leave families with little to no compensation. We persistently overcome those types of cases by battling out the claim in court and proving hard facts related to negligence. Most importantly, our attorney will stand by your side to provide clarity and reassurance.
Workers’ Compensation and Other Benefits
If the fatal accident took place in New Mexico, the employer in most cases is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. However, if the fatal accident took place in Texas, there is a high possibility the employer may not have workers’ comp. Texas is one of the few states that does not require workers’ comp insurance. This means that in order to receive compensation, you will need to pursue a claim on your own. As your attorney, we will assist you with filing the claim and ensuring other expenses are covered as well.
Following the loss of a loved one, families are left with financial struggles including these and other financial worries:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Medical bills
- Financial resources and support
The employer will likely be represented by their respective lawyer. Do not attempt to handle their lawyers on your own. With our assistance, you will be at an advantage to obtain a fair compensation for you and your family.
