Dallas Fatal Car Accident Lawyer

The first step is to file a wrongful death claim

Losing a loved one in a car accident can be devastating, especially when it was because of the actions of a negligent driver. Many families aren't sure what to do next. The car accident attorneys Tracey Fox & Walters help family members hold negligent drivers responsible. We can help you pursue justice.

When a loved one is lost in an accident, the survivors of the victim are often left scrambling for the finances necessary to take care of the aftermath. Funeral costs and medical bills are among some of the expenses that people will come to face. And if the loved one was a financial provider, the family could be left struggling to pay regular expenses, too.

The insurance company shouldn't be making it hard to receive benefits they're entitled to, but they will do anything they can to reduce the amount they have to pay. That's why you need an experienced attorney on your side who knows how to deal with insurance companies and get results.

We pursue accountability for fatal car accidents

What causes fatal car accidents? These crashes are often caused by drivers who were speeding or driving recklessly. Some drivers were texting behind the wheel or talking on the phone. Others were under the influence of alcohol or drugs while they were driving. The result was a collision that took someone’s life.

When a driver was negligent, recovering financial compensation in a wrongful death claim seems like it should be straightforward. Unfortunately, that is usually not the case. Negligent drivers often deny doing anything wrong and refuse to accept responsibility.

Then there are the insurance companies. If you lost a loved one in a fatal car accident, the insurance company will try to minimize your claim for damages. They may offer a settlement that falls far short of the compensation you deserve. They may even try to blame your loved one for what happened.

We know how to investigate and build strong cases

An experienced attorney can get the facts. Our firm conducts a thorough investigation of your loved one's accident. We know where to look for evidence that the negligence of another was responsible. We take the time to build a strong case that can't be ignored.

Our attorneys also determine the total damages your family suffered as the result of the loss of your loved one. You may be able to seek compensation for medical bills from your loved one’s final days, funeral expenses, lost earning capacity, loss of service and support, emotional distress, loss of companionship and loss of inheritance.

How we recover compensation depends on the details of the case. It may involve filing a claim with the at-fault driver's insurance company. Or it may involve filing a lawsuit against the at-fault driver, the at-fault driver's insurance company, the manufacturer of the at-fault driver's car or possibly against the manufacturer of your loved one's car.

Our lawyers fight for the best possible outcome, whether that’s through a negotiated settlement or a jury verdict.
