Understanding Texas Wrongful Death Law

The state of Texas defines a wrongful death as the ending of a person’s life because of certain types of actions or inactions by another party or parties. A Waco wrongful death can be the result of:

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

Who can Pursue a Texas Wrongful Death Claim?

Closely related family members to a person who was killed as the result of the negligent, careless, reckless, or even intentional conduct of someone else are in a position to pursue a Texas wrongful death claim. A Doan Law Firm Waco wrongful death lawyer can provide detailed information about who, when, and how a claim and lawsuit can be pursued following the tragic death of a loved one.

Texas wrongful death law vests three specific categories of close relations who are legally entitled to pursue a wrongful death claim or lawsuit:

  • Spouse
  • Children
  • Parents

If none of these relatives exist at the time of a person’s wrongful death, the state of the deceased Texan (or visitor to the Lone Star State who dies because of someone else’s negligence) can pursue a claim and file a lawsuit against the wrongdoer or wrongdoers.

Accountability and the Compensation You Deserve in a Waco Wrongful Death Case

Complete justice in the aftermath of the wrongful death of a family member is not possible. With that said, the party or parties responsible to taking the life of your loved one can be held accountable. You are entitled to just compensation in your case.

Texas law included a wrongful death survival claim. This claim represents compensation of the type the deceased family member could have sought if that beloved person had not died. Compensation in a Texas wrongful death survival claim includes money for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical bills
  • Restitution

Texas law also includes the ability to make a claim for losses sustained by family members because of the death of a loved one because of the actions of another party. Compensation in that type of claim includes losses like:

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