Filing a Wrongful Death Claim in South Texas

Wrongful deaths happen because of a responsible party’s wrongful act, carelessness, neglect, unskillfulness, or default. The state of Texas only allows certain family members to file a wrongful death claim. In many cases, the allowed filing party may include the deceased person’s spouse, children, or parents, who may file as a group or individuals. These family members might not file a claim within three months of the victim’s date of death. In this case, the deceased’s personal estate executor or personal representative may file a claim after three months past that date. Surviving siblings cannot file a claim in Texas. Our attorney can discuss your family’s legal options regarding your case.

Damages to Seek Fair Compensation for

You may be eligible to get compensation for a wide array of losses, depending on your claim’s circumstances. Some damages will be directly related to financial losses due to wrongful death, such as losing their salary, paying for their funeral, and any future money they may have earned. Other losses relate to the pain and impact a victim’s death has on their spouse and other loved ones, and even on themselves. Our attorneys seek fair compensation for your loved one’s death and consider all damages that apply to the unique circumstances of your case. Below are some examples of possible losses in your claim:

  • Funeral Costs
  • Medical Expenses
  • Property Damage
  • Mental Anguish
  • Loss of Companionship
  • Loss of Benefits of the Decedent
  • Loss of Wages and Future Earnings of the Decedent
