Amarillo Wrongful Death Lawyers
Handling Wrongful Death Cases with Integrity and Care
When loved ones die after a car accident, workplace crisis, or other avoidable tragedy, it’s a devastating blow. During this time, it can be difficult to fulfill even the most basic of your duties. The support of friends and family members is essential to dealing with the big adjustments you’re forced to make.
Filing a lawsuit right after a death may seem thoughtless or even insensitive, but it can bring much-needed financial security—especially after medical and funeral expenses. You shouldn’t have to bear the burden of a loved one’s death on your own. At Templeton Smithee Hayes Heinrich & Russell, LLP, we are here to take on the stressful work of challenging the at-fault party. We will handle your case with the utmost care.
We Can Help You Seek Justice for a Loved One
If you are the spouse, child, or parent of someone who died because of someone else’s actions, whether negligent or purposeful, you have standing to bring a wrongful death case. Unfortunately, many fatal incidents occur every day. Wrongful death claims may cover:
- Death after a car, truck, or motorcycle accident
- Death after a bike, scooter, or pedestrian accident
- Cases of medical malpractice that lead to death
- Fatal workplace accidents
- Death caused by a faulty product
- Intentional homicide
If your loved one was involved in a fatal accident, we can help you hold the responsible parties accountable. No one deserves to have their life cut short in this way. Our team can help you demand justice for your loved one.
Why Should I File a Wrongful Death Claim?
After losing a family member, your life will never be the same. No amount of money can ever make up for your losses, but a judge may award you a settlement to help compensate for the material and emotional hardship you’ve faced. You may be able to recover:
- Medical bills incurred before the death of your loved one
- Costs associated with the funeral
- Recompense for expected future income or inheritance
- Emotional damages that recognize the hardship you have faced, and that will persevere
We want to help you in any way possible during this difficult time. Our team is here to answer your questions about seeking legal remedies in cases of wrongful death.
