Texas Wrongful Death Law and Your Legal Rights

Texas defines a wrongful death that occurs as the result of certain types of action or inaction on by another party. A wrongful death is one that occurs because of:

  • Negligence
  • Carelessness
  • Intentional conduct
  • Unskillfulness
  • Failure to act when a duty to act is owed
  • Some other wrongful act

Specific family members in the state of Texas are legally permitted to pursue a wrongful death claim:

  • Spouse
  • Children
  • Parents

Justice and Compensation in a Bryan Wrongful Death Case

There are two “types” of wrongful death claims that can be brought in Texas. The distinction between the two governs the types of compensation you may be able to receive in a case. Both types of claims can be brought in regard to the wrongful death of a family member.

First, Texas law allows for what is known as a wrongful death survival claim. This action seeks compensation of the type the deceased family member could have sought had the person not died. Compensation in a wrongful death survival claim includes money for losses that include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical bills
  • Restitution

Second, Texas law permits a claim pursued for losses sustained by family members because of the wrongful death of a loved one. Compensation in that type of claim can include losses like:

  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of financial support
  • Funeral expenses
  • Mental anguish and emotional distress

Time of the Essence: Protect Your Rights After the Death of Family Member

Texas law gives you a two-year period of time to file a wrongful death lawsuit. This may seem like a good amount of time at first blush. Unfortunately, when a family member is killed because of the negligence of someone else, insurance companies work mightily to run out the clock – leaving a person like you unable to pursue a legal action as the result of the wrongful death of a loved one.

The illicit gamesmanship of insurance companies underscores the need to hire a Bryan wrongful death lawyer to protect your rights and fight for you.
