Seek Compensation for the Loss of a Loved One
Accidents that result in personal injury, or even catastrophic injury, are bad enough. Unfortunately, they can be even worse when an innocent victim loses their life. At Brasher Law Firm, PLLC, we understand that no amount of money can compensate for the death of a family member; however, we do believe that the person responsible for the accident should be held accountable and should be required to cover any financial loss and emotional damages that you have suffered. Fatalities caused by the legal fault of another person are grounds for a wrongful death claim, which allows the immediate family and dependents of the victim to recover damages caused by the loss of their loved one.
Individuals eligible to file a wrongful death claim include:
- Immediate relatives – spouses, children, and parents of unmarried children
- Adopted children – can file for adoptive parents, but cannot file for biological parents
- Adoptive parents – can file claim for wrongful death of adopted child
- Personal representatives/executor of estate – if family does not file within three months
An eligible individual must file a wrongful death claim within two years of the death, or it will not be heard in court. Our wrongful death attorneys understand that you are anxious to put the complicated legal matters surrounding the death of your loved one behind you so that you can begin to heal, and we want to help you expedite and simplify the process.
Don’t Suffer Any More Than You Have To
If another person’s negligent or reckless behavior caused the death of a family member, you shouldn’t have to shoulder the financial responsibility on top of the emotional stress you’re already under. Brasher Law Firm, PLLC is dedicated to helping mitigate any financial damages a wrongful death might have caused to allow you and your family to mourn in peace.
Damages for which our attorneys will seek compensation on your behalf include:

- Grief counseling
- Pain and suffering
Some of these damages have a set monetary value that can be proven through a bill or receipt, while others require the skilled representation of a personal injury trial lawyer.

The DPS officer told us it was our daughter’s friend, not the driver of an 18-wheeler, that was the cause of our daughter’s death. We didn’t know where to turn. Clint Brasher helped us through a difficult time. And, when the truck company offered us a decent settlement, it was Clint who told us to wait because he didn’t feel something was right. We trusted him. We found out later that the driver was using illicit drugs and exceeding the speed limit. Once Clint got all of the information, we were able to resolve the case on our terms.Lisa TrentWinnie, Texas
When my daughter died in a trucking accident in Wisconsin, I didn’t know what to do. Clint had represented me before and knew me and my family. We hired him to investigate the loss. He was at the scene of the wreck within days. He was able to get all the information to his team of experts. We found out that the driver had exceeded his hours of service. I thank Clint for helping us through this difficult situation.Robert Laurent
