Wrongful Death

A wrongful death is a death that results from the reckless actions or negligence of a third party. The third party may be another person, company, organization or even a defective product. For example, if a person was involved in an auto accident that was caused by another driver’s reckless actions and the person died, it would be considered a wrongful death.

Wrongful Death Claims in Texas

When families have lost their loved ones due to wrongful death, they will not only suffer from sorrow, but also from lost income and financial instability. This is why families are allowed to file wrongful death claims in Texas.

A wrongful death claim is a type of lawsuit or tort that is filed to recover compensation from the negligent party that caused the deceased person’s death. In order to file a wrongful death lawsuit, two crucial elements must be met. First, the family and their lawyer must be able to prove that the death was in fact wrongful and caused by third party negligence. Second, the family and their lawyer must be able to prove that the death led to the family’s loss of companionship, loss of earned income and/or loss of household assistance.

Families that file wrongful death claims and who are successful can collect compensation for things like: the deceased’s funeral and burial costs, the deceased’s medical expenses, lost income, loss of companionship and pain and suffering. These claims are usually filed by spouses, children, parents and in some cases, siblings.
