As a prosecutor for nine years, I dealt with several homicide cases, including intoxication manslaughter and capital murder. I know how devastating the loss of a loved one can be, and I recognize the difficulty of the grieving process. While the most important thing it to take care of your family first, it is also important to contact an attorney.
Money damages will never be an adequate remedy for the loss of someone’s life, but unfortunately it is all that is allowed under the law. In Texas, you are allowed to recover damages in the following categories:
- Loss of earning capacity
- Value of the services provided
- Mental anguish
- Loss of love and companionship
- Loss of inheritance
Whether your loved one was killed by a drunk driver, commercial truck wreck, workplace incident, or some other type of situation, it is important to speak with an attorney. My experience on both the criminal and civil side of cases makes me uniquely qualified to best help your family.
