wrongful death

If your loved one was killed by the wrongful conduct of a person or company, the Houston wrongful death attorneys at The Ammons Law Firm can bring a wrongful death claim against the wrongdoer and hold them accountable for your loss.

Houston Wrongful Death Attorneys

If a loved one passed away unexpectedly, you need a Houston wrongful death attorney to determine if you have a wrongful death claim. Coping with a loved one’s death can be extremely challenging. You’re suffering emotionally and, at the same time, you are still required to continue with your normal life and handle new, unexpected difficulties. This process can be even more difficult when your loved one’s death was caused by a negligent party.

At The Ammons Law Firm, we have helped families hold wrongdoers responsible for their actions for over two decades. While the law cannot bring your loved one back, it can force the wrongdoer to compensate you for the harm you have suffered because of your loss. Holding a wrongdoer responsible for their actions is important because it helps innocent families receive the financial support they need to deal with the financial strain of an unexpected loss, and it deters wrongdoers from engaging in similar behavior in the future, helping others from having to go through the same challenges.

If your loved one passed away and you think a person, company, government agency, or manufacturer could be responsible, you need to speak with our Houston wrongful death lawyers to determine your rights under the law.

When Is a Death Considered “Wrongful?”

No one should have to suffer the loss of a loved one due to someone else’s negligence. Unfortunately, this can and does occur quite frequently. When another person or party’s careless, reckless, or intentional conduct causes the death of another person, that death is considered “wrongful” under most state laws.

In Texas, wrongful deaths can occur as a result of numerous types of accidents and injuries, including but not limited to  the following:

  • Truck accidents
  • Plant explosions
  • Workplace accidents
  • Negligent security
  • Defective products
  • Medical malpractice
  • Car accidents
  • Defective tires
  • Nursing home abuse

Damages in Wrongful Death Cases

The Houston wrongful death attorneys at The Ammons Law Firm have recovered more than $1 billion for our clients, many of whom lost loved ones in wrongful death cases.

We help the families of wrongful death victims recover compensation for a variety of damages, including:

  • Medical expenses incurred prior to death
  • Burial and/or funeral expenses
  • Lost wages/income
  • Loss of expected future earnings
  • Loss of household services provided by the deceased
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of consortium
  • Lost inheritance

In certain circumstances, our wrongful death attorneys may also be able to pursue punitive damages. This type of compensation is meant to punish liable parties for egregious negligence, as well as ensure that similar acts/accidents do not occur again in the future.

Compassionate & Thorough Support

Navigating the legal system can be daunting when you’re also grieving. Our Houston wrongful death attorneys know how to properly prepare our clients’ cases and prove liability in court. We seek the maximum compensation our clients are owed in order to provide for their current and future financial challenges, as well as offer a much-needed sense of justice.

While having a death in the family can be emotionally challenging on its own, the deceased’s family members can also easily build up debt with costly medical bills and funeral expenses—not to mention, the deceased could have been the primary breadwinner in the family, and now surviving loved ones must contend with a loss of income and financial support.

Our Houston wrongful death lawyers know how stressful this time can be, which is why we provide caring and committed representation to clients in Houston and nationwide.

If you or someone you know has suffered from a wrongful death, call our Houston wrongful death lawyers today at (281) 801-5617. Your initial consultation is completely free and entirely confidential.
