Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Texas?
The surviving spouse, children, and parents of the deceased person are eligible to file the wrongful death lawsuit. They can file the suit together, or individually. In the event that neither the spouse, children, or parents file a suit within three years of the incident, the personal representative or executor of the person’s estate may file on their behalf.
“After my Mom’s death Dan was extremely helpful in all the areas we had to process through to settle her estate. His knowledge and respect was much appreciated. I highly recommend him for whatever your need may be.” – R. O.
Filing a Wrongful Death Claim in Texas
We understand that money is likely not the first thing on your mind after losing your loved one and we also know that no amount of money can undo the pain you are experiencing. However, filing a lawsuit and receiving compensation can help you deal with the many expenses associated with the accident and death. Typically, the close family members of the deceased are eligible to file a claim on their behalf. We work to gather sufficient evidence to support your claim and make the process as easy as possible for you and your family.
