Overview of Texas Wrongful Death Law
The Texas wrongful death law sets forth which family members can file a
lawsuit for injuries, damages, and losses arising from the death of a
family member in a lethal accident caused by another party. These are:
The family members eligible to file a claim can do so individual or as
a group. Adult children can make a claim. If the spouse, children, or

family member's death, the personal representative or the executor
for the estate of the deceased individual may file a wrongful death claim.

According to Texas wrongful death law, the nature and extent of compensation
awarded in your case depends on two primary elements. First, the underlying
facts surrounding the accident that resulted in the death of your loved
one. Second, the legal familial relationship between you and your deceased
In some cases, Lubbock wrongful death attorney from our firm will seek
what are known as punitive or exemplary damages on your behalf in your
case. Punitive or exemplary damages represent additional compensation
in a Texas wrongful death lawsuit. These damages are awarded in lawsuits
in which a determination is made that the conduct of the party responsible
for your loved one's death is particularly reckless or egregious.
An order requiring the payment of punitive damages in your case serves
two principle purposes. First, they are designed to provide you with additional

particularly reckless or egregious conduct.
