Caring Attorney Helps You Cope with a Loved One’s Wrongful Death
Ensuring justice is served and compensation won
The death of someone you love is devastating enough, but it becomes even more difficult to bear when that death was caused by someone else’s negligence. In such cases, the deceased person’s loved ones may choose to file a wrongful death suit against the party or entity responsible —and that’s where we our Law Office can help. We believe that no one already grieving should have to suffer the added mental and emotional anguish of knowing the party responsible for their loved one’s death is not being held accountable. It can be especially intimidating to consider such a suit when the party you are up against is a big construction company or a prestigious hospital. But our firm draws upon more than 25 years of experience assisting people with wrongful death claims. Our attorneys have warm personalities, genuine concern for clients and put them at ease during what is often a painful and long legal process.
Who can bring a wrongful death action?
Any person who loses a loved one to the negligence of another may bring a wrongful death action. This includes immediate family members, spouses and financial dependents. Lawsuits claiming wrongful death essentially blame a company, not an individual. Wrongful death defendants often include construction companies, toy and car manufacturers, insurance companies and government agencies. If you believe you may have reason to bring a wrongful death suit, seek the services of a skilled and compassionate personal injury attorney for a free consultation.
Common causes of wrongful deaths
We believe it’s inexcusable for even one Texas resident to lose his life because of someone else’s negligence, but we know many lives are needlessly lost every year. The most common causes for wrongful death litigation are:
Motor vehicle accidents. Car and truck accidents are by far the number one cause of wrongful deaths. With more than 25 years litigating wrongful death cases, our firm helps your family handle this emotional roller coaster with a steady hand.
Side effects of medication. The Food and Drug Administration establishes strict laws to protect consumers. Drug manufacturers need to be held responsible for rushing a drug to market before it’s been thoroughly tested or for neglecting to disclose all adverse side effects completely.
Product defects. Manufacturers of any product sold to the general public may be liable for defects in or malfunction of their products, from toys to plumbing pipes and everything in between. Our firm believes in holding product manufacturers accountable for the sake of our clients as well as for the public good.
Accidents at work. Unfortunately, people die through no fault of their own while just trying to make a living. Work-related accidents give new meaning to the phrase “working someone to death,” and they are simply inexcusable.
