Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Texas

Unfortunately, people are killed is may types of accidents such as car accidents, defective products, unsafe premises, medical malpractice, accidents at work, and many more…. When someone dies as a result of the carelessness and neglect of another person, you have certain rights as a family member and close relative of the deceased.

Every wrongful death suit consists of two separate components.

Texas Wrongful DeathThe first part is called “wrongful death.”  In this part of the case, damages may be recovered by the surviving spouse, children, or parents of the deceased.  The surviving spouse and children of the deceased can sue for the loss of future financial support that they would have received from the deceased.  For example, if a person is killed in a car accident and leaves behind a wife and two young children, then those family members would be able to sue for the wages, earnings and financial support that they would have received from the deceased. There is also recovery for “loss of consortium,” which means the loss of society and companionship of the deceased.

The second part of the case is called a “survival claim.”  A survival claim actually belongs to the estate of the deceased and is brought by the personal representative of the estate.  Survival claims include recovery for the actual injury suffered by the deceased.  This recovery would be payable to the deceased’s estate just as if the deceased had lived.  For example, if the deceased died in a car crash due to multiple physical injuries and trauma, then the estate may pursue a claim for those injuries as if the deceased had survived.  The surviving spouse, child or parent of a deceased’s family can bring both a wrongful death and survival claim.

Don’t Waste Time

Wasting time is the worst thing you can do in your case.  In Texas, there are certain time limits to bring a claim or else your rights can be lost forever.  More importantly, unnecessary delay can cause crucial evidence to be lost and witnesses’ memories to fade.
