How to hold a negligent person or company responsible for a Wrongful Death injury.

Wrongful death lawsuits are filed by the family of a deceased family member, and they hold the accused party accountable for the death. A successful wrongful death claim supports a family financially after the death of a loved one.

What is a Wrongful Death?

Texas law defines wrongful death as a death that is caused by someone else’s unskillfulness, neglect, carelessness, default, or wrongful act. Common wrongful deaths occur as a result of truck, car, pedestrian, and bicycle accidents in the roadway and from workplace injuries. 

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

A wrongful death claim can be filed by the spouse and/or children of a deceased person. It’s important to note that if a claim is filed by a spouse or child, no other family members can do the same. Family members should discuss how to file the claim with their attorneys.
