Wrongful death
Martin Walker Law Firm

Dealing with legal and financial realities of losing a loved one due to another’s negligence can be a difficult experience for any family. The experienced, board certified trial lawyers at Martin Walker, P.C. will work with you to file your claim and recover any damages you are entitled to.

Why should I file a wrongful death suit?

Our laws provide various forms of compensation in the event of a wrongful death. By holding those at fault accountable, you can collect damages that can help cover your loved one’s funeral costs, make up for the loss of their income, and pay for expensive medical bills. Compensation can also be provided for non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, the loss of companionship, and the loss of guidance and moral support for yourself and your children.

Things to keep in mind

There is a statute of limitations that governs the amount of time you have to file a wrongful death claim. Also, the longer you wait to file a claim the more difficult it can be to gather the necessary evidence. We can advise you about the laws limiting your claim and answer any questions you might have about filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Contact us for a free consultation meeting at (903) 526-1600.

Auto Accident – Rollover Truck Wreck

We obtained a confidential settlement for a high speed truck accident on US 271 in which the victim’s vehicle overturned and his injuries claimed his life.

Reid Martin, Jack Walker and Blake Bailey are board certified in Personal Injury Trial Law. Marisa Schouten is board certified in Civil Appellate Law. All attorneys received their certification from the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

Medical Malpractice

We obtained a verdict against a Hospital and a doctor in the amount of $1,920,223.00. The family of a truck driver who was killed during an EGD procedure sued the anesthesia care team involved in his medical care. The failure to protect and manage their patient’s airway caused the death when our client retched up blood from a Mallory-Weiss Tear in his stomach. The doctors and hospital misled the family into believing that their loved one would recover and were instructed to hold his hand and speak “loudly” to him for several days despite the fact that they knew that he had developed anoxic encephalopathy and multi-organ failure due to the lack of oxygen to his brain.

Safety Harness Failure

We helped the family of a man whose safety equipment failed as he worked on a tower allowing him to tragically fall to his death.
