Texas Wrongful Death Lawsuits


As a wrongful death attorney whose career has spanned more than two decades, I have  seen first hand the devastation and grief that accompanies the unjust or unexpected loss of a loved one. Survivors rightfully may feel anything from anger and guilt to anxiety about the future. Few things are more traumatic than the loss of a life caused by the negligence of another. It is often much more difficult to reconcile than death by natural causes.

As a Texas wrongful death lawyer one of my goals is to lighten the burden of negotiating the legal process while helping you through the grieving process. We are dually equipped to address legal issues and help direct you to those services that will provide the greatest support to you and yours in coming to terms with your loss. We take great pride in not running a volume practice instead focusing on a smaller number of serious cases to give our clients the best possible service.

If you are considering a Texas wrongful death lawsuit the following information should be helpful to you:

*In Texas, the same general liability rules govern a wrongful death claim as others  (claims).

*If a loved one has died as a result of a company’s negligence then the estate or beneficiaries will be entitled to recover from said company.

*The wrongful death statute regulates the family members’ recovery for their own damages. The survival statute regulates what damages the estate is able to seek on behalf of the deceased for those damages suffered between the time of the injury and the time of death.

  • “I can never express how grateful me and my family are to Greg Baumgartner and his team of truck accident lawyers in Houston. He took care of our injury case and got us a great settlement. Thank you for a job well done!” R. G. Client
  • “I did not have a very high opinion of attorneys until I met Greg Baumgartner. Luckily my accident was not severe. However, when the insurance company stopped paying my bills, I started looking for an attorney. I met Greg and Lissa and was impressed with how comfortable they made me feel. I felt like they actually cared about not just my case but me as well. The outcome of my case was greater than I ever imagined and it was all due to how hard Greg fought on my behalf. If you are looking for an honest attorney who will be your advocate and fight hard for you, as well as being truly interested in your well-being, there is no other choice but the Baumgartner Law Firm.” K.
