Who is Entitled to File a Wrongful Death Claim in Texas?

Of course, whenever a person loses their life, many people grieve, including their friends and family members. However, not every person impacted by the loss of a loved one is legally allowed to file a wrongful death claim. Here in the state of Texas, only certain people may file these claims. They are the spouse, child, parent, or personal representative of the decedent, and in that order.

Recoverable Damages

As long as we can prove your loved one lost their life as a result of another person’s negligence, and that they would have a valid personal injury claim, had they sustained an injury and lived, you should recover compensation for the following:

  • Funeral expenses
  • The cost of medical care prior to the death
  • Emotional anguish
  • Pain and suffering
  • The loss of enjoyment of life
  • Lost wages provided by your loved one
  • Loss of companionship or guidance
  • The cost of household services your loved one used to perform

How Long Do I Have to File a Wrongful Death Claim?

In Texas, you are required to file your wrongful death claim within two years of the decedent’s date of death. Waiting longer than two years will likely result in you permanently being barred from suing. Our firm can help you today–all you need to do is pick up the phone and give us a call, or contact us online.
