Wrongful deaths can occur from car accidents, workplace accidents, defective product malfunctions, and a host of other possible causes. If you and your family recently lost a loved one unexpectedly due to the negligence of another party, this is sure to be a traumatic and emotionally challenging time for all of you. A Houston wrongful death lawyer can provide clarity and understanding when you need it most. In many ways, a wrongful death claim is functionally similar to a personal injury claim. However, Texas enforces specific rules for wrongful death claims that outline who has the right to file these claims, the damages available, and additional damages that are not available in standard personal injury claims.
Your Houston wrongful death lawyer will help you and your family navigate the complex legal proceedings that a wrongful death claim entails. At Houston Injury Lawyers, PLLC, we understand the emotional toll that these types of proceedings entail and will do everything in our power to ensure a swift and fair result. Our team will work closely with you and your family to help you determine the full scope of the damages available to you. While money cannot replace a lost loved one, the financial compensation you and your family receive from a successful wrongful death claim can make everyday life a bit easier to manage in the aftermath of the tragic and untimely death your family experienced.
