Have the details of your wrongful death accident been completely uncovered? Our personal injury law firm will investigate. The collection of evidence, including witness statements; accident investigation; insurance matters; and sources of family assistance are crucial after someone suffers a wrongful death. Our accident investigation team works to uncover the causes of and liability for accidents. We know the necessary elements of a wrongful death claim. Everything that we do in the investigation of your claim will be geared to move the case forward. We are experienced in this regard, and we are determined.

We go the extra mile. In Texas, an estimated 20 percent of drivers have no insurance. Many others carry only the minimum liability coverage. We look for other sources of coverage and liability if the facts suggest additional responsible parties. Did an auto defect contribute to your loved one’s fatal accident? Was the other driver driving in the course and scope of his or her employment? Was he or she driving someone else’s car? If the other driver was drunk, is there a dram shop claim?

We will tell the story of your family’s loss. Your life has tragically changed. In many serious injury and wrongful death cases, we create effective settlement videos that present a family’s life and its loss because of a serious or fatal accident. If we need to go to trial, we will.
