A New Braunfels, Texas wrongful death lawyer should be able to help a potential plaintiff by gathering important pieces of evidence. Three types of evidence helpful to a claim are:
1) Eye witness testimony. The eyewitness should be able to give an account of the events that lead up to the wrongful death accident. Eye witnesses can be the deciding factor in proving that the defendant was negligent.
2) Physical Evidence. When presenting a Texas wrongful death case, the physical evidence can help show liability. The plaintiff’s attorney will often have to rely on experts to help prove the case.
3) Expert witness testimony. Certain expert witnesses can help recreate the accident and help put the puzzle pieces together. Sometimes experts are doctors. Other experts may be engineers. Experts may need to gather and develop tools and expertise to conduct state-of-the-art tests to inform and support reliable and admissible expert opinions for the courtroom.
We know that losing a family member caused by someone else’s negligence can be debilitating. That’s why families hire attorneys. So that the attorneys can do the work and maybe help bring closure to the family that wants to know how the accident happened. Sometimes, when gross negligence is involved, the family may want closure by obtaining a judgment against the negligent driver in a car accident case or a company in a workplace accident case so that similar accidents do not happen again.
