Do You Have Questions About Your Legal Rights Following The Death Of A Family Member In An Accident?

Below are some questions we often hear from family members who have lost a loved one in an accident.  Click on each question for the answer.

A statute in Texas called the Texas Wrongful Death Act sets out the rules for fatality cases.  Most states have a death statute with similar rules.  Only certain classes of family members are entitled to bring a claim for "wrongful death."  The law also allows a claim on behalf of the deceased person, called a "survival" claim.  It is often necessary for us to bring a probate attorney on to a death case to ensure a survival claim is appropriately asserted.
