What if My Loved One Died During the Power Outage?
If you suffered the greatest loss possible due to blackouts in Texas during the recent catastrophic weather, then you may be able to get compensation for your damages. We know that money can’t make everything better, but it can help you dig out of a financial hole created by your loved one’s death.
Some losses we can get you money for include:
- Funeral costs
- Burial expenses
- Loss of decedent’s earnings
- Loss of inheritance
- Loss of decedent’s household, parental, and spousal services
- Loss of decedent’s care, support, guidance, companionship, and love
- Surviving family members’ mental anguish and emotional distress
- Surviving family members’ mental health care and expenses
These losses can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars to millions of dollars you will have to face in the future. The people and companies that caused the situation should be held accountable.
Compensation for Significant Property Damage
Freezing temperatures and flooded homes left many people with thousands in property damage. Once beautiful homes are now destroyed by broken pipes and gushing water. Your property damage may be significant, and ERCOT and other energy companies that caused the blackout should pay for those losses. If you have $15,000 in property damage or more, we can help.
After you call us, we will determine how much it will take to repair your home. We will demand that the energy companies pay for those damages. Even if you have homeowner’s insurance, you may have damages they won’t cover. ERCOT should be held responsible for the entire amount.
If you were renting your home, you probably have significant losses that your landlord will not cover. Hopefully, you had renters’ insurance, but they may not offer much compensation either. You deserve to have money to replace spoiled food, destroyed furniture, and any other property damage you suffered.
Did You Suffer Physical Injuries?
Many people were severely injured due to power outages in Texas. You may have suffered cold-related injuries like frost bite because you could not heat your house. No matter how you were injured, you likely have significant medical bills and other damages. You may also be unable to work as a result of those bills.
We can help you file a personal injury lawsuit to get compensation for the following:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Physical pain
- Mental anguish
- Physical limitations
Was Your Medical Care Negatively Impacted?
If you or a loved one needed ongoing medical care during the Texas blackouts, it was likely negatively impacted. You may not have been able to make it to the doctor, or your nurse might have been prevented from coming to your home. Your medical devices may have been unable to operate. Your oxygen may have been limited. There are many situations that you may have been forced to endure due to the lack of electricity. You deserve compensation for any damages you incurred.
