Texas Wrongful Death Lawyer

A "wrongful death" is one that occurs as the result of the misconduct or negligence of another individual, company or entity. This can include momentary negligence, intentional misconduct or neglect. If a loved one has suffered a wrongful death, you need an experienced Texas wrongful death lawyer working on your side.

Examples of negligence or misconduct causing wrongful death include: medical malpractice that results in a fatality; automobile accidents, work accidents, nursing home neglect, etc.


Who Can File a Lawsuit?

According to Texas law, only certain related individuals (parents, spouses, and children) may file a wrongful death lawsuit. You must also be aware that you have only two (2) years from the person’s death to actually file a wrongful death lawsuit. At the same time, don’t think that since you have two whole years to file, that you can take your time. Every DAY that passes makes your case harder to win. Evidence disappears, memories fade, etc. This means that you have to act fast and get in touch with an experienced Texas wrongful death attorney as soon as possible.


To Qualify as a "Wrongful" Death, a Case Should Include the Following Elements:

  • The death resulting from the negligence of another person, employer, doctor, or other entity.
  • The death leaves surviving family members with monetary damages (less income, medical & funeral bills, etc).
  • Someone has been appointed the personal representative for the estate of the deceased (we can help you with this as well).

Wrongful death lawsuits serve to help families get the compensation for mental anguish, lost income and other forms of compensation. Additionally, these suits help to ensure that no other family suffers the same fate due to someone’s negligence.

Damages awarded in wrongful death lawsuits vary from state to state and are dependent upon the relationship of the survivor to the deceased. Regardless of the state standards, the law seeks to allow compensation for actual losses that have been experienced by each individual beneficiary of a wrongful death.
