The wrongful death of a loved one is a tragedy. Nothing can replace the deceased and no amount of money can truly compensate for their absence or the pain and suffering they felt prior to death. No amount of money can bring them back or can fill the void created by their absence.
But modern law does not allow for an eye-for-an-eye, or a tooth-for-a-tooth; nor should it. The law tries to find a way to compensate their survivors for the loss of companionship, support and care. It seeks to replace their lost income that would have gone toward supporting their family and pay medical and funeral bills brought on by the wrongful act of another. It seeks to make their estate whole. If the wrongful death is brought about by conscious indifference to the health and safety of the public, the law allows exemplary damage, to teach the wrongdoer that society won’t stand for their conduct. The law attempts to right the wrongs of negligence, and sometimes, conscious indifference of the wrongdoer.
We provide ethical and zealous representation in wrongful death lawsuits. We are experienced in representing families of loved ones who have been killed by the wrongful acts of another and guide families through the process of a lawsuit: discovery where we demand and receive documents, question witnesses and experts to figure out what happened and who is at fault; motion practice where we craft legal arguments and prepare the case for a judge and jury; and trial where members of the community decide fault and damages.
Our attorneys have worked in industry and began their careers working at some of the largest law firms in Houston and the country. We are well-trained and have handled hundreds of cases. We have found and prepared fact witnesses. We have deposed expert witnesses in medicine, industrial hygiene, safety, state-of-the-art, and financial damages, and we have developed our own experts in those fields as well. Most importantly, we effectively prepare our clients for deposition and courtroom testimony, because this is frequently what matters most in the case. We help our clients tell their story and let both the defendant and community know what happened and how the loss has effected those left behind. We are well versed and experienced in wrongful death cases and will bring that experience to bear.
