Wrongful Death Claims in Texas

In Texas, wrongful death claims can be filed by the spouse, parents, or children of the deceased. Grandparents and siblings are not granted this right. Claims may be filed by any individual member or as a group. Compensation is generally awarded to all surviving family members as listed above who were affected by the death. How the compensation is divided will be at the discretion of the judge and jury.

Compensation may include:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Medical bills of the deceased prior to the death
  • The lost earning capacity of the deceased
  • The loss of companionship, love, society, comfort, or consortium
  • Mental pain and anguish of the survivors
  • The loss of household services and assistance that the deceased provided
  • The loss of inheritance
  • The losses associated with pain and suffering for the deceased before death

Wrongful death claims must be filed within two years of the death. Exceptions to this rule exist, so it is important to seek the legal advice of a attorney before you proceed in order to fully understand the process.
