Helping Families After Dallas Swimming Pool Accidents
Needless to say, no financial compensation can bring back your loved one after a drowning death in Lake Fork, Lake Whitney or Lake Ray Hubbard. However, your family has likely incurred expenses such as emergency medical bills, funeral and burial costs. If your drowned loved one was a breadwinner for the family, losses may be acute and urgent. Even if the drowning victim was a child or elderly person without an income, the loss to a family can be tremendous after a fatality. You may be able to recover compensation for loss of love and companionship, offering relief for your family as you adjust to life without your family member.
After a drowning accident, a lawyer can offer much-needed advice and direction. Phone us at 866-576-3748 or send an email message. We represent families in wrongful death cases on a contingency fee basis.
