Legal Representation for Those Who Have Unjustly Lost a Loved One
Death can be difficult to deal with in any situation, but it can be especially painful when you know that the death could have been prevented. If you are suffering the loss of a loved one because of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, you may be entitled to receive compensation. A wrongful death tort, for example, can help you pay for funeral costs, cover unexpected medical bills and help tie up loose ends that your loved one may have left behind. When you work with Adams Law Firm, we can work quickly to help you obtain the compensation that you deserve in your time of need. Our Katy wrongful death attorneys have more than 35 years of legal experience providing favorable outcomes for our clients.

Wrongful death claims are a lawsuit brought directly against the person who is at fault for the death. At Adams Law Firm, we understand that negligence, recklessness, or a lack of skill can cause a tragic accident, and we will explore all avenues to find where the trouble originated. Even if it is established that the wrongdoer is criminally at fault and is being charged with murder, manslaughter or homicide, you can still file a wrongful death case in civil court. If the death-causing accident was a workplace accident, for example, then the employer may be sued for allowing negligent conditions to exist.
Who can file a wrongful death case?
In the state of Texas, only certain people may file a wrongful death case after an accident. You may pursue financial compensation if your relation to the deceased was as:
- A spouse
- An adult child
- A parent
- The executor of the will – with permission from surviving family members
It should be noted that you may not file a claim for the wrongful death of one of your siblings.
