Can I file a wrongful death claim in Texas?

Here in Texas, surviving immediate family members may have the right to compensation after the wrongful death of a loved one, as well as the decedent’s spouse. The decedent’s parents are also considered immediate family members, whether they are biological or adoptive. The children of the decedent can also file a wrongful death claim, whether they are legally minors or adults, and whether they are biological or adopted. Step-parents and foster parents, however, do not normally have the legal right in Texas to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.

Other family members, such as siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins, generally do not have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit in Texas, unless they have been legally appointed as the personal representative of the decedent’s estate. The attorneys at Slack Davis Sanger can explain more.

How can a wrongful death lawyer help?

The sudden loss of a loved one can be financially devastating. If the deceased was the major breadwinner in the home, the surviving family members may not have the income to pay the mortgage and the rest of the bills. Medical and funeral bills can also cost tens of thousands of dollars. A wrongful death lawsuit can help take the financial burden off your shoulders by covering your expenses, as well as lost income and pain and suffering.
