Overview of Texas Wrongful Death Law
Pursuant to Texas law, a wrongful death occurs when another party causes the death of a person by:
- Intentional conduct
An example of a negligent wrongful death incident is one in which a motorist is driving a bit over the speed limit, can’t brake in a timely manner, and causes an accident which results in death. On the other hand, a reckless incident could be one in which a motorist is driving 50 miles over the speed limit and causes an accident resulting in death. Finally, a wrongful death claim might be able to be pursued when a person assaults another, resulting in the death of the individual physically attacked.
Who can Pursue a Texas Wrongful Death Claim?
Texas law also establishes who may pursue a wrongful death claim. Certain family members are able to seek justice, accountability, and financial compensation in a wrongful death action. These are:
In the absence of these family members, the estate of the deceased individual may be able to pursue a Texas wrongful death claim. A McAllen wrongful death lawyer at (956) 415-0000 can assist you in determining who may be able to pursue this type of legal action following the death of a family member.
Justice, Accountability, and Compensation in a Texas Wrongful Death Case
Nothing can be done to fully restore justice when you have lost a family member because of the improper, deadly conduct of someone else. Financial compensation is at the heart of obtaining a sense of accountability for the wrongful death of a family member.
Texas wrongful death law has two categories for financial compensation when a family member dies in this manner. First, there is a Texas wrongful death survival claim. Through this type of claim you are able to seek compensation for losses and injuries the deceased would have been able to claim in a personal injury case, if he or she survived. These include losses and injuries like:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical bills
In addition, Texas law permits a claim for losses sustained by certain family members because of the wrongful death of a loved one. Compensation here includes:
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of financial support
- Funeral expenses
- Mental anguish and emotional distress
