When someone you love dies and you believe it is due to another party's recklessness or negligence, you owe it to yourself to file a wrongful death lawsuit and seek justice in a court of law. In these kinds of situations, it is in your best interest to find a personal injury attorney who has had experience with cases similar to yours.
According to FOX 7 NEWS, a Texas-based news network, the family of deceased Austin man Larry Jackson Jr. is suing the police officer responsible for the victim's death as well as the Austin Police Department. The plaintiffs claim that Jackson was racially profiled by a law enforcement official who thought the victim was acting suspiciously outside of a bank that had been robbed earlier in the day. The police officer purportedly engaged in a struggle with Jackson and says his gun accidentally went off, though Jackson's family members allege that it was purposeful.
"In my professional opinion this is by far the worst police shooting this city has ever seen," said Adam Loewy, one of the personal injury attorneys representing the plaintiffs, as reported by the source.

These experienced professionals can assess your claim, try your case in court and help you recover damages to which you may be entitled.
