Houston’s Wrongful Death Attorney
The loss of a loved one is an unthinkable tragedy. It is even worse when the negligent actions of another person or party cause the wrongful death. We know that during this time of grief, the last thing on your mind is talking to a lawyer or pursuing legal action. However, taking prompt legal action against the party responsible may be the only way to protect your family and obtain justice.
Houston, Texas is one of the leading cities in the nation for fatal auto accidents. Many of these accidents are caused by drunk and distracted drivers, and according to the Texas Department of Transportation, there were a record number of 176 fatal accidents in Houston in 2012.
DWI related crashes are just one example where a wrongful death claim may unfortunately arise. When a family loses a loved one unexpectedly, due to someone else’s negligence, lives are altered forever. If the lost loved one happened to be the primary financial provider for his or her family, the situation is only further compounded. While filing a lawsuit cannot bring back the lost loved one, you may seek the financial compensation the family deserves. It can ensure that family and children have the fiscal support they need in the years to come.
Any death caused by the negligence of another party which fails to provide reasonable care to prevent the harm of another, is grounds for a possible wrongful death lawsuit. If you find yourself in this situation, don’t trust the future of your family and the justice of your loved one to just anyone.
