Common Causes of Wrongful Death

In the state of Texas, a "wrongful death" occurs when a fatal injury is caused by another person or entity's "wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, unskillfulness, or default." Texas allows for wrongful claims to be filed on behalf of any individual, including children who were unborn at the time of their death.

Wrongful death can be caused by many factors. Some of the most common accidents that can lead to a death include:

  • Traffic accidents (car, truck, pedestrian, bicycle, etc.)
  • Construction and Industrial site accidents
  • Aviation accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Defective product malfunctions
  • Chemical / toxic exposure illnesses
  • Slip and fall accidents

Damages in a Wrongful Death Claim

The surviving family members can recover monetary compensation for losses including:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of financial support
  • Medical bills incurred by the decedent just before they died
  • Mental anguish
  • The deceased person's pain and suffering

The compensation you will be eligible to receive depends on a number of factors, including how to decedent died, what their income and net worth were, the needs of the surviving family members, and other factors unique to each individual case.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Texas?

Texas allows for the following individuals to file claims for wrongful death:

  • The deceased’s spouse,
  • The deceased’s children (biological, step, and adopted),
  • The deceased’s parents, or

In Texas, wrongful death lawsuits must typically be filed within two years of the date of the decedent’s passing.
