FORT BEND COUNTY WRONGFUL DEATH LAWYER
COMPASSIONATE LEGAL SERVICE FOR YOUR FAMILY IN SOUTH TEXAS
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. Our Fort Bend County wrongful death lawyers at The Law Office of Shane McClelland are here to help you file your claim and fight for justice.

What are Potential Damages from a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
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
