Damages for Wrongful Death in North Texas
In many cases, the same types of events or accidents that we often see in other injury cases, can have the potential to cause a more catastrophic result and end in a wrongful death.

- Construction Accidents
Speak to one of our top wrongful death lawyers today for a full case evaluation. While we understand that no amount of financial recovery can replace a loved one, the compensation awarded to a family in a wrongful death case can help to alleviate many of the bills and other burdens associated with the loss. Each of the surviving family members have a right to file a claim of wrongful death against the responsible negligent party. In our experience, however, the family has a better opportunity if they are represented by a single wrongful death law firm.
The family of the victim can seek compensation for:
- Medical Bills
- Funeral Expenses
- Loss of Wages
- Loss of Benefits or Future Gains
- Loss of Emotional Support
While it is a fairly straightforward procedure to determine the value of the loss of wages or benefits, determining the value of loss of emotional support and love is very different. Our knowledgeable and experienced attorneys understand this and are here to help you and your family determine what will best suit your family’s needs after your loss.

No Fees Unless We Recover Damages for You
For wrongful death cases, our injury attorneys operate on a contingency fee basis, meaning that we advance all costs to investigate and litigate the case, and you do not pay anything unless we recover damages for you. Many cases involve accident experts, doctors, and other professionals. We do not charge our clients for any of these fees while the case is pending. All fees. including attorney’s fees, are deducted from the overall damage award. If there is no recovery, then the client does not pay any costs.
