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.
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 parents do not file a wrongful death lawsuit within three months of a 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 family member.
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 compensation. Second, punitive or exemplary damages are intended to serve as punishment of the party that caused the lethal accident because of particularly reckless or egregious conduct.
