Katy Wrongful Death Attorney
Compassionate Legal Service for Your Family
When you have lost a loved one, the pain will last for the remainder of
your life. The pain of loss is something that’s devastating beyond
words. However, to lose a loved one wrongfully is simply cruel and unjust.
While there is no replacement for human life, the American judicial system
does provide some relief for those who have lost a loved one due to someone
else’s negligence or action.
When a person dies because of the negligent or wrongful act of another,
his or her loved ones may pursue what is known as a “wrongful death”
claim. If the person was not killed instantly, his or her loved ones may
also bring what is known as a “survival action” on the decedent’s
behalf. A successful wrongful death claim allows the deceased’s
loved ones to obtain compensation from the wrongdoer. The Law Office of
Shane McClelland is here to help you file your claim and fight for justice.
Get in touch with us by
contacting us online or calling (713) 242-1302. Your initial case evaluation is free of charge.
We Strive to Favorably Settle Your Case
The Law Office of Shane McClelland will do all we can to settle your wrongful
death case out of court. Based upon our experience and the diligent preparation
of each case we accept, a great number of our cases often settle without
ever going to trial. Of course, if filing suit is necessary, our Katy
wrongful death lawyer offers experienced and aggressive legal representation.
If we accept your wrongful death case, we will investigate the matter very
carefully in order to ensure that each and every potential defendant is
identified and included in the lawsuit. We pursue justice for our clients
and zealously advocate for their interests. From pre-trial investigation
to discovery, and from jury trial to appeal if necessary, our wrongful
death attorney can help the loved ones left behind to hold those at fault
If you’ve lost a loved one as the result of a
personal injury accident, there is no amount of money that can ever bring your loved one
back. Nobody can replace your loss or properly compensate you.
While there is no amount of money that can replace human life, loved ones
successful in their wrongful death lawsuit and survival action may be
able to recover compensation for:
- The deceased’s medical expenses
- Funeral and burial expenses
- The deceased’s conscious mental and physical pain and suffering (actually
considered a ‘survival action’)
- Loss of the deceased’s financial support and benefits for his or
her expected lifetime (income, pension, medical coverage)
- Increased expenses incurred (such as for paying someone to perform the
duties previously performed by the homemaker)
- Loss of consortium, companionship, care, guidance, and affection
