Filing a Wrongful Death Claim

The first thing you should understand is that only certain parties may file wrongful death claims in Texas; not everyone affected by the loss of a loved one can lawfully bring a wrongful death claim. Only the spouse, child, parent, or personal representative can file a wrongful death lawsuit, in that order.

Winning a Wrongful Death Claim

To win a wrongful death claim, like all other personal injury lawsuits, you will have to prove that your loved one lost his or her life as a direct result of someone else’s negligence. You and your wrongful death attorney will have to do so through various forms of evidence, including pictures or video footage of the accident, medical documentation, eyewitness reports, and more. As long as you can satisfy the burden of proof, you should recover compensation to help you deal with the following:

  • The loss of companionship or guidance
  • Pain and suffering
  • The cost of lost wages your loved one would have provided
  • The cost of medical care your loved one received before losing his or her life
  • The cost of your loved one’s funeral or burial
  • The cost of chores around the house that you now have to hire someone to do
  • The loss of enjoyment of life
  • Emotional trauma
  • Loss of consortium

Statute of Limitations for Wrongful Death Claims in Texas

The statute of limitations for wrongful death claims is, in most cases, two years. This means family members will have two years from the date the death occurred to take legal action against the party responsible. Our firm is prepared to begin the claims process on your behalf today.
