What is Wrongful Death?
Wrongful death is the death of an individual due to the negligent or wrongful act or omission of another. Negligence comes in many forms including, but not limited to:
Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents;
Bicycle and pedestrian accidents;
Premises liability accidents;
Workplace injury accidents;
Product liability accidents; and
Texas, like many other states, requires the filing of wrongful death lawsuits within two years of the death of the victim. States generally bar families who miss the deadline from any recovery.
Who can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
Only a handful of family members have “standing” or the ability to file a wrongful death claim or lawsuit on behalf of their loved one. In Texas, the following family members may file a claim:
The biological or adopted children; and
Siblings and grandparents may not file a wrongful death claim in Texas.
While no amount of money can compensate for the loss of a family member, a successful wrongful death claim can ease a family’s financial strain and provide much-needed income replacement for the future.
