Our Firm’s Approach to McKinney Wrongful Death Actions

Wrongful death cases require a significant amount of money, specialized knowledge, and a lot of time to litigate. Some personal injury lawyers simply do not have the time, expertise, or the preparation to commit the financial resources necessary to work wrongful death cases. It is common for an attorney to spend tens of thousands of dollars, sometimes hundreds of thousands, prosecuting a claim.

For a plaintiff to earn the best possible result, it is critical that their attorney has the financial wherewithal to handle the case properly. Many lawyers that handle personal injury cases will refer wrongful death claims to firms such as the McCraw Law Group because our firm is experienced in pursuing these challenging cases.

When you are ready, consider reaching out to learn more about our firm’s approach to McKinney wrongful death actions and how we could help hold negligent actors accountable.

How Does Attorney Compensation Work?

Attorney compensation is typically executed on a percentage of recovery, called a contingency fee. No fee is owed unless a recovery is made. Often, the lawyers also finance the cost of putting the case together, so they have invested money, time, and staff from day one.

A contingency fee is often the best route for both the plaintiff and the attorney. To pay cash out of pocket for prosecuting a wrongful death case, the plaintiff would have to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars upfront. Most plaintiffs are simply not able to do that. The attorney, meanwhile, has a strong incentive to litigate the case as effectively as possible while on a contingency fee. The better job they do, the greater the recovery and the more money they stand to make.

The Value of Compassion

In the view of the McCraw Law Group, compassion for the claimants is the most critical part of wrongful death cases. When someone has passed away, there is a hole in the life of the family and the community. The jury needs to feel that pain; it needs to understand who the person was and what the community and family lost.

Without compassion, a wrongful death case is difficult to litigate effectively. Doing it right takes a toll on attorneys and their staff. Sometimes taking time off because of the emotional aspect of the case is critical to the lawyer’s effectiveness and personal mental health. Often, it is emotionally challenging to work with people who have lost a loved one, especially if the decedent is a child. The lawyer has to help the claimant live through their grief.

In addition to emotional support and making the connections for the jury to see what the person is going through, an accomplished wrongful death lawyer can tell the family what to expect. Skilled lawyers could help remove some of the unknowns during the case process.

I seeked the McCraw law group after a bad experience. As lawyers would do they lied to get the case. After my car was... totaled with my kids inside.my car sat in the pound for a month and a half until I took matters into my own hands. I also was told by Vanessa she had too much work to focus on my case. After we waited to move on the adjusters beat I took matters in my own hands. I was told a certain amount by her supervisor but received less but they received the 10k as in the contact plus’s 300.Also in the process we lost our pip after the settlement was received and they declined to commit to pursue my out of state insurance. I would say run !!!!!! Don’t think twice! They’re horrible! I was asked to handle the hospital bills with care! They’re very nice! You need lawyers to handle your case like you wouldn’t. In my case I handled them. I didn’t receive my complete compensation after my children and I suffered so much hardship and pain. They didn’t care. Horrible beside manors but was extremely nice to the adjusters. RUN!!!!read more

McCraw Law Group is an exceptional firm and I could not ask for more than what I received with their services. All of... their staff, from the clerks to the attorneys, were extremely helpful and caring and constantly asked me if I needed anything or if I had any questions or concerns.

Absolutely Not.To the staff that handled my case, I greatly appreciate all of your work and the result speaks for itself. Thank you!read more

I was in an accident in March and had injuries resulting from the crash. Obviously my first call was to a doctor to get... checked out but was told I was going to need physical therapy. My second call was to the McCraw Law Group. They took care of all of the grunt work so that all I had to focus on was getting better. They were very communicative about the process, and better yet, they were incredibly responsive to any emails, calls, and questions. I was very appreciative and thankful for all of their hard work. They are a great group of people to work with when you’re needing the help.read more
