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 another incident. The simple act of choosing a lawyer to protect your interest can make all the difference.

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 corporations by fighting strength with strength.
