Wrongful Death

For decades, Michael L. Phifer has been successfully working to restore a sense of justice and financial security for innocent families after the deaths of their loved ones in Texas and other states. When a death has occurred due to the negligence or misconduct of others, Texas law provides that the surviving parents, spouse and children may bring a wrongful death lawsuit to secure justice and financial compensation.

All too often, families are torn apart and suffer due to the carelessness and negligence of others. Not only do families lose a cherished family member, but they may also be forced to incur enormous costs for emergency medical and hospital treatment while losing the valuable financial contributions of a Mom or Dad. Sometimes, it seems as if the suffering will never stop.

Whether deaths occurs due to highway or workplace safety violations, medical negligence or defective products, a drunk driver or a trucker who has fallen asleep at the wheel, the legal system is the only means of securing compensation and justice for what has occurred.

Although a wrongful death lawsuit can never change what has happened in the past, it can change the future. It can restore financial security for the family, eliminate the burden of unpaid medical bills, and provide for the future support and education of children who have lost a Mom or Dad. And, hopefully, it can cause people to recognize and follow basic rules of safety in the future so the same tragedy does not strike another innocent family.
