The most devastating thing that one can go through is to unexpectedly lose a loved one due to a crash or other incident caused by the negligence of a careless person.  When this happens, lives are changed forever, and the victim’s family needs qualified representation on the civil (wrongful death) claim such as Burress Injury Law, the best wrongful death attorneys in McKinney.

When a family loses a loved one, the economic damages can be insurmountable.  Examples of economic damages include medical expenses, loss of income, loss of inheritance and funeral/burial expenses.  Additionally, there are many non-economic damages for which financial recovery can be obtained.
