Harris County Wrongful Death Attorney

Lawyers for Fatal Accidents Serving the Houston Area

Few things in life can compare to the pain of losing a loved one in a senseless accident. Not only are you dealing with the grief of losing a loved one suddenly, but you may also be dealing with significant financial stress. It may feel as if your life has been turned upside down overnight. While nothing can undo the accident and bring back your lost loved one, our caring attorneys may be able to help you pursue the compensation you need against the party responsible for your family member's death.

The Hatton Law Firm PLLC is experienced in working with grieving families who have lost a loved one in a tragic accident. Motor vehicle accidents can be devastating, and they are one of the most common causes of accidental deaths. Of course, "accidental" does not mean that the person at-fault should not be held accountable for the harm they have done. Most drivers who cause fatal accidents were being careless at the time. Our goal is to force the at-fault driver to fully compensate you.

Who Our Texas Wrongful Death Lawyers Can Help

In Texas, you must be an immediate family member of the deceased individual in order to be eligible to file a wrongful death claim. Wrongful death laws are designed to protect those closest to the decedent, since they are most likely to suffer as a result of their loss. If your spouse, parent, or child lost their life in an accident, we may be able to file a wrongful death action on your behalf.

Katy Attorneys Pursuing Complete Compensation for Surviving Family Members

Aside from the emotional cost of grieving a close family member, many surviving families of those killed in auto accidents will struggle with serious financial problems. You may have counted on your loved one's financial support or domestic services, like caring for children or paying household expenses. You very likely counted on their companionship, guidance, and love.

You may be entitled to compensation for all of these types of losses, both economic and non-economic. Texas courts understand that the true cost of losing a family member is by no means limited to the loss of their financial support. Our state offers compensation for not only the loss of their wages both now and in the future, but also compensation for a variety of damages that are not nearly so easy to quantify.

Our goal will be to recover the maximum amount of compensation that you are eligible for. We will take a careful and skilled accounting of the types of harm you have endured so that we can demand full compensation.

Types of Wrongful Death Cases We Help With

Our attorneys are skilled in representing surviving family members of those whose lives were tragically cut short by auto accidents. We take on cases involving deaths caused by:

  • Car wrecks - Most car accidents are avoidable and caused by careless driving.
  • Motorcycle accidents - Motorcycle wrecks are all too commonly fatal due to the limited protection a rider has.
  • Commercial truck crashes - Truck drivers have an important duty to follow safety laws and procedures to prevent an accident. A trucking company may be held liable for fatal accidents caused by driver error or other forms of negligence.
  • DWI accidents - Intoxicated drivers can be unpredictable and impossible to avoid.

Auto crashes are one of the most common causes of accidental deaths in the United States. Rarely are these accidents completely faultless in nature. We are often able to identify some type of negligent behavior exhibited by the party who caused the accident.

We strive to ensure that the negligent party who caused an accident will be held responsible for the harm done to the person who was killed and their surviving family members.
