"I highly recommend attorney Fred Willumsen. He is professional, thorough, forthright, and kind. He communicated well throughout the process, took the time to answer any question I had, told me just how things were, whether good news or bad. He advised well on decisions I needed to make, and his support team did a great job in helping to navigate and resolved my case with the best results possible. Thanks again, Fred!"– A.M.
I worked with Donal McRoberts and I can say without hesitation that he is one of the most caring and hardworking people I know. He helped me through the absolute worst time in my life. Not only with my case but he made sure I was getting the medical help I needed too. I could never thank him enough for all he did. He protected me the whole time, never letting myself or anyone else put me in a position that could hurt me (mentally). If you are looking for someone to be on your side whether it's be a quick case or a long haul Donal is who you need hands down.– Abby F.

How do I determine the value of a drowning accident claim?
When we have represented families that have been involved in drowning accidents, one of the questions that they often ask is, “What can we ask for in terms of compensation?” It’s important to understand that there is no amount of money that will compensate a family for losing a child, a brother, a wife or a husband, or a parent. There is no amount of money that can make them whole, so to speak.
In order for us, then, to determine what the reasonable settlement value is, we have to follow Texas law and look at the different elements that we can ask for under that law. For example, if the drowning victim suffered prior to their death – for example, they knew that they were drowning – their estate is entitled to compensation for that. Also, the family members, such as a parent, spouse or child, are entitled to be compensated as well. If a husband or wife drowns and there’s a loss of income to the family, they’re entitled to ask for that income as part of their compensation. That can be a lifetime of income if the person is a younger person, for example.
Also, you have mental anguish and emotional distress that you can ask to be compensated for. This includes the suffering that you have experienced as a result of the drowning, as well as loss of affection, loss of love, loss of companionship. All those things that have been taken from you as a result of the drowning are elements of compensation that you can ask for.
