Allen Best Wrongful Death Attorneys

If you are coping with the loss of a loved one due to the wrongful acts or negligence of another, you need qualified legal representation.   Our focus is to protect your family’s financial interests behind the scenes by expertly handling the wrongful death claim so you can focus on the grieving and recovery process.

Protecting the family’s interests starts with preserving all evidence.  Next, we develop the best strategy to optimize the monetary value of the case.  Then, we fully teach our clients what to do and what not to do in a wrongful death personal injury case.  This will not only increase the value of the claim, but it also increases the percentages of obtaining a full value settlement without putting our clients through the stress of a trial.  Finally, we fully leverage technology to increase our efficiency and overall effectiveness, not to mention our level of communication with our clients.  These are the basic keys to Burress Injury Law’s commitment to being the best wrongful death attorneys in Allen TX.

Available damages in a wrongful death claim can include: (1) Pecuniary losses [loss of the decedent’s earning capacity, advice, counsel, services, care, maintenance and support, and funeral expenses]; (2) Mental anguish; (3) Loss of companionship & society; (4) Loss of inheritance; and (5) Exemplary Damages [if the responsible party committed gross negligence].  Burress Law has earned the reputation as Allen’s best wrongful death attorneys for helping grieving families to obtain full monetary recovery for all available damage elements.

Our attorneys bring a combined 250-plus years of experience in wrongful death and personal injury law to every case we take. By limiting the number of cases we accept, we can devote our significant resources, knowledge and experience to seeking justice and compensation for the grieving families we represent. We provide aggressive representation in wrongful death cases involving:

  • Auto, motorcycle, bicycle and pedestrian crashes
  • Commercial truck accidents
  • Aviation crashes
  • Product defects
  • Premises liability
  • Workplace incidents
  • And more.

Why We Are Allen’s Best Wrongful Death Lawyers

One reason we are known as Allen’s best wrongful death attorneys is our insistence on holding all negligent parties responsible for the harms they cause. For example, in a drunk driving fatality crash, we do not limit our claims to the drunk driver.  We routinely hold the bars and restaurants who overserve the intoxicated drivers responsible as well.  We also evaluate crashed vehicles (and other products) for potential product defect claims (such as airbags, seat belts, excessive roof crush, and crashworthiness).
