Dealing with the Preventable Loss of a Loved One
The loss of a loved one to the negligence, recklessness or disregard of another is a tragic, life-changing situation. The law allows certain family members to recover damages in this situation and also allows for the recovery of damages suffered by the deceased prior to their death.
Throughout their careers, David Kerby and Camie Wade have represented Texas and New Mexico families faced with such a situation. They understand the compassion and care that is vital when dealing with a wrongful death claim.
Every case needs immediate attention to preserve evidence and to protect the legal rights of a client, and in this way a wrongful death claim is no different. We are ready to meet with families and provide you the personal service that we have grown our reputation around. You will find that the team at Kerby & Wade are real lawyers for real people. Our firm has continued to grow and thrive based upon compassionate and professional care of our clients. In our opinion, there is no better form of advertising than a satisfied client.
Each case has a different monetary value depending on many components. Those components may include the facts of the death-causing event, witness potential, actions of the defendant(s), lost earnings, relationship with the deceased, location of the death or where the defendant(s) reside(s). We take great pride in communicating with our clients our opinion of the monetary value at each step of the way so a client is well-informed and comfortable as we proceed.
A few examples of non-confidential results are:
- Our client was awarded a judgement of $27,000,000 against a drunk driver who took the life of her daughter
- Other clients were awarded a total judgement of $1,714,064 in a lawsuit where their mother was run over and killed by a negligent driver
At Kerby & Wade, we prepare every case as if the case is going to trial. In our opinion, if you prepare a case any other way you are preventing the client from maximizing their recovery. Our firm is where compassion, communication, care and results come together to benefit the client.
