Princeton Best Wrongful Death Attorneys

If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence or recklessness of another, you can trust Princeton’s best wrongful death attorneys to fight on your behalf to get all the damages available under the law. At Burress Law, we provide personalized, compassionate service to our clients during the most difficult periods in their lives.

We know that nothing can bring back a loved one. The best we can offer is to protect your family’s interest during the grieving process.  To this extent, we leverage our 250-plus years of combined experience and approximately 200 personal injury trials to ensure full compensation is recovered from all responsible parties to provide some level of closure. We have earned over $100 million on behalf of our clients, secured the 7th highest MVA injury verdict in Texas on a mild classified traumatic brain injury case, and earned the largest published wrongful death settlement in Oklahoma several years ago.

What Makes Burress Law Unique?

One reason we are known as Princeton’s best wrongful death lawyers is that we work closely with our clients. We help them understand the claims process and their options for getting the maximum possible value of their case. Our attorneys communicate closely with our clients, and our founding attorney is personally involved in every case. Our philosophy is to accept fewer cases than many firms so we can provide this individual attention to our clients.

Additionally, we have superior experience and outstanding resources.  With respect to resources, we have the war chest to fund these often times expensive wrongful death cases as well as having a robust expert witness database.  There are many law firms that pretend to be catastrophic and wrongful death lawyers, but they lack the resources to fund a major wrongful death case.  These cases can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to fully prosecute.  Other law firms have lines of credit that they draw from and after the case is over, they pass all of the interest charges on their credit lines to their clients to pay.  The best wrongful death law firm in Princeton does no such thing.  We do not even carry lines of credit.  We internally fund every one of our cases and we never pass any interest charges on case costs to our clients.

In addition to having the best wrongful death attorneys in Princeton TX, we also have the resources to gather preserve and development all of the evidence needed to aggressively pursue our clients’ claims against all responsible parties. As Princeton’s best wrongful death attorneys, we handle all types of wrongful death cases involving:

  • Car, motorcycle, bicycle and pedestrian crashes
  • Crashes involving commercial trucks and buses
  • Drunk driving crashes

Call Princeton’s Best Wrongful Death Attorneys Today

Your time to file a wrongful death case is limited as the wrongful death statute is only 2 years.  Even more importantly, corporate defendants and insurance companies routinely fail to preserve and will destroy evidence.  The best practice is to contact a qualified personal injury law firm as soon as possible so they can preserve existing evidence, protect evidence in the responsible parties’ hands, and begin developing evidence to strengthen the case while the family focuses on the grieving process.  Call Burress Law at 214-726-0016 to schedule a free consultation with the best wrongful death lawyers in Princeton TX.
