Wrongful Death

En Español

James Michael Shaw

For most of us, death is unexpected. Even when it has been predicted or diagnosed and signs are fairly clear, the hour of the day comes as a shock. But when death occurs entirely without warning, we are more inclined to see it as an accident than something inevitable, which in our grief we might want to move beyond. Unfortunately, grief and mourning can cloud our judgment and prevent us from taking appropriate legal action in a timely manner. This is where Carabin Shaw’s San Antonio wrongful death attorney can help you.

If your family has experienced the tragedy of a wrongful death, please call our Law Firm. If you are unsure of whether or not the circumstances of your loved one's death qualify as wrongful death, call us and we can help determine the appropriate legal action for you to take. We are available day or night, seven days per week.

Wrongful death and personal injury cases can be difficult and complex. Insurance companies want to limit their exposure or liability when a serious injury or death occurs. These companies will typically hire a team of attorneys whose job it is to aggressively undermine each aspect of the plaintiff's claim. We have been combating those tactics on behalf of injured families for over 25 years.

Regardless of where, when, or how your wrongful death occurred, we are prepared to represent your case. We will work tirelessly to provide you with the service your deceased family member deserves. Our wrongful death lawyer in San Antonio has helped individuals and families with injuries and deaths caused by:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • Dog Bites / Animal Attacks
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Premises Liability / Slip and Falls
  • Personal Injury / Wrongful Death Litigation
  • Construction Site Injuries
  • DUI-DWI / Alcohol-Related Crashes
  • Products Liability / Dangerous and Defective Products
  • Trucking Litigation / Semi-Truck Crashes
  • Workplace Injuries

In each case, there are a number of factors that determine reparation. We are here to make sure every category that applies to your situation is taken into consideration. Some of the more common damages we seek to recover include:

  • Expense associated with the death, e.g., medical and funeral
  • Loss of support
  • Lost benefits, such as insurance, from the death
  • Loss of inheritance from an untimely death
  • Loss of love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection or care suffered by the survivor of the decedent
  • Punitive damages, intended to punish wrongdoers and prevent them from harming others

At Carabin Shaw, an experienced San Antonio wrongful death lawyer we provide will be professionally trained in handling cases exactly like or extremely similar to yours. Remember, if you have lost a loved one, you may be eligible to receive compensation under the law. Knowing how much you have suffered from this tragic loss is something you may never be able to fully communicate, but we can ensure that every type of suffering the law recognizes is applied to your case. At Carabin Shaw, we will do our utmost to ensure that your health, whether that be physical, mental, or emotional, is addressed and covered, not only in the immediate aftermath of your loss, but for years to come.

If you have questions or concerns about a personal injury or wrongful death claim, please contact us today. We offer free initial consultations and work on a contingent fee basis, which means that there is never a fee unless we successfully resolve your case. During the consultation, we will make sure you understand every step we intend to take before you sign anything, and are familiar enough with the kinds of questions past clients have had to be ready to answer anything about which you may be uncertain.
