Was a family member or loved one wrongfully killed? Our Dallas wrongful death lawyers are here to help.
Some accidents are so severe that they result in the death of a parent, spouse, or child. We can help make sure that your family receives the justice your loved one deserves.
A wrongful death can result from from an automobile accident, construction accident, medical malpractice, or any type of negligence. While nothing can undo the damage already done, our job is to make sure that your family receives the justice and compensation they deserve.
When an untimely death occurs as the result of any type of negligence or accident, the beneficiaries of the victim not only inherit a “survival claim” on the victim’s behalf, they’re also permitted to bring a separate wrongful death claim as well.
A survival claim seeks to recover compensation for the pain and suffering that your loved one endured (i.e., what would have been their personal injury claim), while a wrongful death claim seeks to recover compensation for the family’s losses, such as:
- Any loss of familial income (what the victim would have provided his or her family in income up to retirement, given their age and work history).
- Loss of consortium / companionship and society / advice and counsel.
- Funeral expenses.
- Mental anguish.
If you’ve lost a loved one as the result of someone else’s negligence, we’ll look out for your family’s best interests. We’ll make sure that your needs are addressed and will handle the entire claims process from beginning to end. At Montgomery Law, you are our first priority.

The Sooner You Act, The Better
