Widow of Man Killed in Accidental Shooting to Be Compensated

The Ammons Law Firm has obtained compensation for the widow of a Harris County Sheriff’s Office deputy who died of gunshot wounds in an accidental shooting, despite an insurance company’s initial refusal to pay.

The deputy was at a relative’s home when the relative experienced a mental health episode and accidentally shot the man. The relative had a homeowner’s policy through the Lighthouse Property Insurance Corporation that covered such incidents in the home resulting in “bodily injury” or “property damage,” attorney Rob Ammons claimed.

In addition to the enormous human damages from the loss of her husband, the surviving deputy’s wife suffered economic damages. An economic expert estimated the loss of the man’s income and of his role around the household at more than $760,000. The deputy was 57 at the time of his death.

The Ammons Law Firm has a nationwide personal injury practice focusing on tire defects, truck accidents, rollovers, consumer protection and product liability, catastrophic injury, wrongful death, post-collision fires, seat belt defects, air bag defects and plant explosions.
