My wife and I thought we were heading into a complicated legal odyssey with a destroyed commercial property until we hired Bill Kendall. His sustained focus and hard work was so effective that we had a great settlement within hours of the first deposition.

Multi-Family Property Claim (Dallas, TX)
Our large hotel was severely damaged by hail. After significant delays by the insurance company, our claim was denied. We hired Bill Kendall and Grisham & Kendall soon after. Through Bill’s efforts during our lawsuit, we were able to reach a favorable settlement close to trial. We would certainly recommend Grisham & Kendall, PLLC to any property owner whose insurance company isn’t treating them fairly.

Dallas Wrongful Death Lawyer FAQ

In a wrongful death case, there are four elements that should be shown to exist. These include:

  1. 1. Negligence – it must be shown that the defendant’s careless, reckless, or negligent actions led to the death
  2. 2. Breach of duty – the plaintiff must show that the defendant owed a duty of care to the victim
  3. 3. Causation – it must be shown that the defendant broke their duty of care to the victim
  4. 4. Damages – it must be shown that there are quantifiable damages (funeral costs, medical expenses, etc.)

Wrongful death damages vary case-by-case, but often include:

  • – Medical expenses for the deceased’s prior to their death
  • – Funeral and burial expenses for the deceased
  • – Loss of the deceased’s future income
  • – Loss of the deceased’s companionship and/or parental guidance
  • – Loss of any inheritance for the deceased’s children
  • – The pain and suffering that the deceased may have experienced before death

Yes, in addition to the wrongful death, a decedent’s family may recover damages for the pain and suffering that the decedent endured prior to death.
