What does the law say?
If someone you love dies in a negligent accident in Texas, only spouses, children, and parents of the deceased can file a wrongful death lawsuit. However, these terms are often argued about since in this day and age we have many adopted families and common law marriages.
If you have experienced the loss of a loved one, there are two claims you can make:
A Wrongful death claim is a claim that is made by a family member based on that person’s loss of a loved one.
A Survival Claim is a claim that is made on behalf of the person who died for the pain and suffering he/she endured. Typically it can only be brought on by a family member. Probate court is usually involved to determine which person can hold this claim.
The lawyers at V&B have vast experience in dealing with wrongful death claims. (See our Case results page)
