More Than 25 Years Of Experience

Wrongful Death

Nothing can truly compensate for the loss of a loved one. In addition to the emotional pain experienced by the grieving family, often heavy financial burdens result from wrongful death, and families often don’t know where to turn.

At The Hughes Law Firm, we represent families whose loved ones have died because of someone else’s reckless or negligent actions. We do everything legally in our power to help families in the Houston area obtain the financial compensation they need and deserve.

What Kinds Of Losses Are Compensable Through A Wrongful Death Claim?

The sudden death of a loved one can have a financial impact for years to come, especially if the person who died was also a contributor to the household income. In Texas, the surviving spouse, children and parents of the deceased may be entitled to compensation through a wrongful death claim.

Compensable losses in a wrongful death claim may include:

Mental and emotional anguish
Lost earning capacity
Loss of inheritance
Financial losses, including the maintenance, care, counsel and support the deceased family member would have provided
Loss of love and companionship
If the death was the result of someone’s willful act or gross negligence, additional damages may be assessed in order to punish the wrongdoer.

Holding Wrongdoers Accountable.

Whether your loved one’s life was taken by a drunk driver, a defective auto part, negligence on a construction site or some other wrongful action, The Hughes Law Firm can help. We fight on behalf of our clients in Harris, Brazoria and Galveston counties to hold negligent and reckless parties accountable.

If you have questions about the process of filing a wrongful death claim, do not hesitate to contact our office in Houston. There is generally a two-year statute of limitations for wrongful death claims in Texas, and the sooner we get involved in your case, the sooner we can begin investigating the circumstances and gathering evidence.
