Your loved one has died due to someone else’s fault, so what do you do? Trying to cope with your emotional loss is hard enough, but what about the financial recovery that you are entitled to as a result of your loss? You deserve compensation for your losses including what you have lost emotionally, what you have lost financially, and also what the deceased lost both emotionally and financially. In Texas, recovery options in these cases generally include wrongful death and survival claims.
Wrongful death and survival action cases that we frequently see with our clients include the following factual scenarios:
Wrongful death claims are asserted by the decedent’s loved ones in an attempt to recover for damages suffered as a result of losing the decedent. Survival actions are brought to benefit the estate in an attempt to recover for the injuries and damages sustained by the decedent.

After I was severely injured, I didn’t know what to do next. One of my colleagues recommended reaching out to Dorothy for representation. When I finally did, I didn’t regret my decision — I received tremendous support and she treated me like family. She brought the best outcome and I’m amazed at the passion she brings into her work. I would recommend her services without any reservation.
I’ve always known that I needed an insurance policy to protect me if I got into a car accident. But when I got involved in a car crash, I realized how important it is to have a lawyer protect me from my insurance company! This firm settled my case really quickly and delivered excellent results. Dottie secured a fair and equitable settlement, and I’d recommend her to anyone in need of good counsel and representation.
Thank you for bringing my claim against the construction company to a successful conclusion. You made the process less intimidating and made me feel like the struggle I had to endure was valid. It has helped me cope with a lot of post-accident challenges differently. You were more than I expected — thanks again.
