How we can help

We realize you and your family need time to grieve the loss of a loved one. That's why we want to meet with you. We can handle all the paperwork and red tape often associated with fatal motor vehicle accidents. We can focus on moving your case forward so you can focus on processing your grief.

Our lawyers understand the challenges you can face when trying to get justice for your loved one. Negligent drivers who cause fatal accidents often deny responsibility – even if they were speeding, texting behind the wheel or driving drunk.

Insurance companies often try to minimize compensation by challenging your claim. They may claim that your loved one caused the accident. Or they may offer you a settlement that falls far short of the compensation you deserve.

That’s why we start by investigating your loved one’s accident. Our legal team gathers evidence, including any video evidence from nearby traffic cameras. We carefully accident reports and medical records, and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts who can help us understand what happened.

Our attorneys build strong cases that insurance companies can’t ignore. We push back against any attempts to blame your loved one for what happened. We are determined to help you get the best possible outcome, whether that’s through a negotiated settlement or a jury verdict.

Our goal is accountability and closure

No amount of money can bring your loved one back. But recovering financial compensation is a way to hold negligent drivers accountable and can help your family move forward.

It's important to take legal action as soon as possible for many different reasons. Right near the top of that list is the quality of the evidence available immediately after an accident. The longer you wait to take legal action, the harder it can be to obtain the compensation you deserve.

Don't take chances with your future. Take action. Contact our San Antonio office and schedule your free case evaluation right now. Best of all, you only have to pay us if we secure a settlement or verdict for your family. It's that simple.
