One of the most overwhelming experiences a family can go through is the untimely death of a relative. This experience can be especially traumatic if the death was the result of a negligent act. One such act that can devastate a family is the drunk driving related death of a loved one. Although many drunk driving cases result in injury, the most severe can result in permanent injury or death. Simple negligence has also been known to cause severe accidents. Negligence is defined as any action or lack thereof that has caused an injury, or in extreme cases, death, to the victim.
For these types of cases, a highly-skilled litigator specializing in personal injury law, such as an attorney from McAllen’s J. Gonzalez Law Firm, can help build a strong case. If a member of your family has been killed due to a negligent act, a personal injury lawyer will serve as an invaluable asset in your pursuit of justice.
