Dallas Wrongful Death Attorney

The Impact of Premature Death on a Family

The unexpected death of a family member is so traumatic and all-consuming that it's often impossible for immediate family members to think about whether they have a legal case. It's often a friend or an extended family member that takes the initiative to learn more about a wrongful death claim or to seek information from a lawyer. This step is so important in protecting a family's right to financial recovery after a loved one is killed in a car accident, from medical malpractice, or other incident. The simple action of choosing a lawyer to protect your interest can make all the difference.

Once our attorneys are involved, we will handle all necessary paperwork and insurance forms. We will gather and preserve evidence. We handle everything so the family can deal with what’s most important to them right now—grieving and recovery. If you or a loved one has suffered the premature death of a family member due to negligence, or the reckless or criminal behavior of another, talk to a lawyer at Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP. We have decades of experience holding large companies and negligent parties accountable for their actions and securing financial compensation for our clients.

We offer free consultations to help guide you to the next step with confidence—call us at (214) 301-5007 today.

Texas Wrongful Death Law

In Texas we have the "Wrongful Death Act," a legal statute that defines the kinds of damages you can seek, and who is allowed to seek compensation. Only certain family members are eligible to bring a claim. These include spouses and children, but also other dependents like siblings or parents.

When bringing a wrongful death case, it’s important to work with a law firm that has the resources and connections that will be needed to bring the case. Because you pay no attorneys’ fees unless money is recovered for you, your law firm will not recover these fees until the end of the case.

Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP works with experts from around the country, and has the resources needed to properly present your case using the latest technology and demonstrative aids. We can stand up to the large insurance companies or corporation — fighting strength with strength.

What You Can be Compensated for in a Wrongful Death Case

Every life has both intrinsic and financial value, even the very young and the very old. Our attorneys have the experience and resources to determine the full impact of the loss of your family member, which may include:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Lost wages today and into the future
  • Loss of companionship and parental guidance
  • Medical costs of caring for your loved one before death
  • The cost of hiring people to do the tasks at home that your family member once did

We sympathize with your loss and we care about meeting your needs at this difficult time. You know what this death means to your family and your future. We make sure the insurance company and the jury understands that, too.

Contact our offices to schedule a free consultation—we want to help you seek justice and get answers.
