Helping You Understand Wrongful Death Claim Requirements In Texas
In order to have a valid wrongful death claim, the injury that caused the fatality must be due to someone else’s negligent or reckless actions. Further, if the deceased individual had survived, they must have had a valid personal injury claim.
Texas has laws that provide guidance on who can file a wrongful death claim on behalf of a deceased victim. In Texas, the deceased individual’s surviving children, parents or spouse can file a wrongful death claim on their behalf. If these parties do not file a claim within three months of the death or there is no surviving family, the personal representative of their estate must file the claim instead.
In a wrongful death case, you can obtain damages for funeral expenses, lost income or financial support, medical bills, loss of companionship, and pain and suffering. You can also pursue punitive damages in severe cases where the death occurred due to a willful act or gross negligence. Punitive damages punish the responsible party by requiring extra payment for the harm they caused.
