Wrongful Death

Houston Wrongful Death Attorneys

Fighting For Families Grieving The Loss Of A Loved One

The death of a loved one due to the negligence of another is devastating. The period that follows can be filled with grief, disbelief and a sense of confusion on what legal action, if any, to take.

At The de la Garza Law Group, we provide clarity throughout this troubling time. With over 30 years of combined experience, our attorneys assist injured individuals and grieving loved ones across Greater Houston after devastating accidents. We hold negligent parties accountable, with a goal of recovering damages for your loss.

Wrongful Death Claims In Texas

In Texas, the surviving spouse, children and parents may pursue a wrongful death claim within three months of their loved one’s death. When legal action is not at the forefront of your mind, there are still options after the three-month period passes. The executor or administrator of your loved one’s estate can bring an action on behalf of all entitled individuals.

Seeking Damages To Provide Necessary Financial Relief

A wrongful death claim can hold negligent or reckless parties accountable for the death of your loved one. A wide array of accidents can lead to death, including a crash between vehiclesgross negligence by an employer, a dangerous product and more.

We will pursue damages for your loss, which can provide compensation for:

  • Loss of support, or the impact that the loss will have on you and other family members
  • Loss of services, or the loss of household responsibilities fulfilled by your loved one
  • Loss of inheritance, or the value of assets reasonably expected without the premature death of the loved one
  • Funeral and medical expenses, or unexpected expenses from end-of-life, burial and other related matters

Such damages vary from other personal injury claims as they compensate for the unexpected loss of a key wage earner.

For us, every case is personal. In prioritizing your well-being, we will aggressively pursue what you are due from the at-fault party. We are strategic litigators and will not back down from taking your case to court when necessary.

I would definitely use Mario again

Mario was very professional at all times. The one thing that made me at ease with him was that when I would text him, I would get a response every time within 10 minutes.or less. There was always an answer from him every time I had a question. I would definitely use Mario again if needed and would highly recommend him to someone else needing an attorney.

We highly recommend this firm

On behalf of my family, we are extremely grateful to The de la Garza Law Group for all their legal assistance. One important factor for us was that this involved dealing with family where we all lived outside of Texas, which required consideration for numerous phone calls to different time zones to discuss the case.
