Wrongful Death

death1In Texas, wrongful death lawsuits can be brought for deaths caused by drowning, electrocution, assault, car accidents, and others.

Filing a wrongful death lawsuit can help you get the compensation you need to be able to pay for your loved one’s funeral expenses and medical bills, and can also compensate you for your pain and suffering.
