Wrongful Death

The Law Offices of Francisco G. Medina represents members of the Houston community who have lost a family member due to a wrongful death.  Wrongful death refers to a death that was the fault of another person. The law may consider deaths resulting from a variety of circumstances to be wrongful deaths, including death caused by a health care professional's failure to diagnose a fatal disease, the manufacture of a dangerous or defective product, the construction of an unsafe building or structure, or an accident caused by a drunk driver.

Usually, a surviving family member or beneficiary of the decedent will decide to file a wrongful death lawsuit. These lawsuits may be filed for a number of reasons, including the pursuit of monetary damages to cover wages lost due to the death of the family member. Wrongful death lawsuits are also filed to recover funeral expenses, lost death benefits such as insurance, loss of inheritance due to untimely death, to recover for loss of companionship, protection, or care by the decedent, and to make up for the pain, mental anguish and suffering sustained by the survivor.

If you live in the Houston area, or anywhere in Texas, and a loved one suffered a wrongful death, you may be eligible to receive compensation under the law. Call us at 713-869-7030 (or toll free at 1-800-499-9893) or contact us online for a FREE consultation.
