Although nothing can assuage the untimely and unexpected loss of a loved one, an experienced attorney can help you and your family prepare for the future by seeking monetary recovery against the responsible party for that loved one’s death.  The law firm of Harris & Greenwell has experience in handling wrongful death cases.  We apply our experience and legal and financial resources to conduct a thorough investigation into the cause of the fatal accident and identifying those responsible for it.  We seek also to uncover all possible sources of recovery for families with wrongful death claims.  At Harris & Greenwell, we are fully dedicated to helping families obtain justice, holding negligent, grossly negligent, or intentionally-acting parties accountable for their actions and the harm they have caused.

Harris & Greenwell offers strong advocacy and legal counsel to families with wrongful death claims involving:

  • Commercial vehicle accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Car accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Negligent security claims
  • Pursuing All Possible Sources of Financial Recovery

Thorough investigation of liable parties and claims

At Harris & Greenwell, we will advocate for your family to recover maximum compensation through a settlement or trial verdict.  We will investigate all possible sources of financial recovery, and, if necessary, can assist with the probate of wills and estate handling matters.   In Texas, there are causes of action for the death of a loved one for both the surviving family members, and for the estate of the deceased.

Fair and just compensation for your loss

Depending upon the circumstances, recoverable damages include:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical expenses related to the accident
  • Loss of consortium/companionship and society
  • Pain and suffering of the victim
  • Emotional and mental damage for the deceased and the survivors
  • Loss of inheritance, and other economic losses

If the facts and circumstances warrant, survivors may seek exemplary or punitive damages to punish gross negligence and prevent the same bad actors from hurting others.
