Wrongful Death Caused By Law Enforcement Lawyers
Law enforcement officers are tasked with carrying out duties, which include serving and protecting communities. Unfortunately, Law enforcement officers are frequently placed in dangerous circumstances with only a few seconds to make a decision. They must also determine whether deadly force is necessary for a split second.
It goes without saying that things can go wrong in the heat of the moment, but if a law enforcement officer acted with malice or negligence and caused a death, surviving family members may be able to file a claim on behalf of their loved one.
If you’ve lost a loved one as a result of law enforcement officer action, Texas Personal Injury Lawyers is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to answer any questions you may have about civil liability and monetary compensation you may be entitled to. Call us immediately to speak with our experienced wrongful death lawyers.
What Is Wrongful Death By Law Enforcement?
Wrongful death by law enforcement occurs when an individual is harmed through unlawful means and dies as a result. This might occur as a consequence of carelessness or intentional infliction of harm. Family members of someone who died as a result of unlawful policing may bring a civil claim against the officer and law enforcement department.
How The Lawsuit Process Works For Compensation
The procedure for bringing a lawsuit may vary from one scenario to the next. However, Texas Personal Injury Lawyers follow certain procedures while defending the victim’s family in court. The litigation procedure generally includes gathering and evaluating information and evidence, filing a lawsuit, demanding the production of important documents and records, depositions, negotiations, and mediations.
- Review The Available Information
The first step is to collect all relevant information. This includes police reports, investigative paperwork, articles, testimonies, and newspaper accounts of the incident.
- File A Lawsuit On Behalf Of The Personal Representative
After deciding if there is enough evidence to support a wrongful death claim, a personal representative files the case on behalf of the deceased victim’s close relatives.
- Request For Production Or Court Orders
After the lawsuit is filed, we may request additional information. This includes recordings, videos, and papers. If required, we submit a petition to the court asking for access to critical information to be allowed.
- Settlement Negotiation Or Mediation
Wrongful deaths caused by law enforcement officials do not always necessitate a trial. The case is sometimes resolved through pre-trial settlement talks or mediation, although we only accept settlements or mediation if it is in our client’s best interests.
- Go To Trial And Represent The Client If Necessary
Finally, if going to trial is in our client’s best interests, we are prepared to do so. Our crew of wrongful death lawyers advocates for the client using evidence-based and forceful argumentation.
