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:

Damages in Wrongful Death Cases

The Ammons Law Firm has 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 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 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 lost a loved one in a devastating accident, we can help. Call (281) 801-5617 or contact us online to schedule your free consultation today.
