Wrongful Death

Justice for Wrongful Death Victims

A wrongful death victim can no longer speak — we will represent their interests in a court of law and hold any negligent party responsible. Although we recognize that no amount of money can replace a loved one, we believe that compensation is due to the victim's family. Wrongful death litigation can change laws and change lives.

At Treon & Shook, PLLC, our AV-rated* attorneys represent individuals or families who have lost a loved one due to the negligence or error of another party. We know how to hold insurance companies accountable and we understand medical conditions which can lead to death.

We are especially skilled at representing the most vulnerable among us.

Representative case: A mentally disabled man was riding his adult tricycle in the road when he was struck by a truck, dying instantly. The police did not investigate the scene or the driver who was alcohol impaired. Our attorney's and paralegal's thorough investigation and search for witnesses in a very "rough neighborhood", led to an exceptional financial settlement for the decedent's mother.

Experienced With Special Needs Individuals

The efforts mentioned in the above paragraph are just one example of our work with special needs adults and children. We have acted on behalf of a number of clients who have suffered while in the care of Child Protective Services (CPS).

Our attorney's expertise includes in-depth knowledge of many other areas of law such as dram shop laws, which can impact personal injury or wrongful death litigation.

Representative case: An adult man was killed in a car accident in Arizona when he was rear-ended by a semi tractor trailer travelling on I-10. The legal question became whether his long-time significant other qualified as a spouse according to common law marriage in Texas. We established that they did meet the standard and so our client was able to receive a wrongful death settlement as the lawful spouse of the decedent.

Representative case: A man shot and killed two individuals at a Walmart while under supervision of a mental health organization. Because he was not being properly monitored was not taking his medication, our clients were able to obtain a wrongful death premises liability settlement.
