Areas Of Our Practice

Your loss of a loved one can be compensated under the law

Most of us have thought from time to time about what the consequences might be if we were to be injured in an accident that was caused by someone else. But less often do we contemplate what would happen if it was a loved one who was the victim -- and worse, what if the injury that he or she suffered was a fatal one?

Even if you have not been personally involved in an accident, the avoidable loss of an immediate family member -- a parent, a sibling or a child -- can be devastating in multiple ways. The loss of a mother or father can deprive the surviving spouse of support and companionship, and the children of that parent’s support and guidance. And of course there is the loss of income if a wage earning parent dies.

While there is no way to truly calculate the extent of a loss, for legal purposes, there are ways to measure a loss. And if the accident or other act that led to the death constitutes legal grounds for a wrongful death action, those measurable losses can be recovered from the person responsible for causing that death.

In fact, Texas statutory law recognizes a claim of wrongful death. But the provisions of the law can be complicated to understand and complex to apply. Fortunately, you do not need to become a legal expert to make the law work for you. We can be your advocate in a wrongful death action.

Our firm has several attorneys with many years of cumulative experience among them in several aspects of personal injury law, including wrongful death claims. We understand the intricacies of the statutes, so you can focus your time and energy on what is most important to you as you go through the process of finding your way forward after the loss of a family member.

If a loved one of yours has died as the result of a fatal accident, and you believe that the death was the result of a wrongful act, then we encourage you to learn more about what you can do by visiting our web page.
