    Understanding Wrongful Death in Texas

    What is wrongful death? In plain terms, it means someone died because of another person’s carelessness, recklessness, or intentional harm. Texas law, specifically the Civil Practice and Remedies Code (Chapter 71), defines it as a death caused by a wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, unskillfulness, or default.

    The law is clear about who can seek justice for the deceased. Typically, it’s the surviving spouse, children, and parents. If they do not step forward within three months of the death, the responsibility falls to the executor or administrator of the estate. It is a way to ensure someone holds the responsible party accountable.

    Damages You Can Claim for Wrongful Death in Texas

    After the unimaginable happens, the law provides a way for you to seek justice and financial compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit. We understand that no amount of money can honestly fill the void left by your loved one. But it can help alleviate the financial burdens that often follow such a tragedy and provide security for your family’s future. Here are some potentially recoverable damages in a wrongful death lawsuit:

    • Lost income or financial support your loved one would have given to your family, including their salary, benefits, and potential future earnings.
    • Medical expenses incurred medical expenses before their passing. These costs can be recovered to lessen the financial strain caused by their medical treatment.
    • Where your loved one was on a path to accumulating assets that they would have left to you and your family, we will fight to recover the inheritance that was tragically lost due to their untimely passing.
    • Loss of love, companionship, and comfort.
    • Funeral and burial expenses


    The amount of compensation awarded in a wrongful death lawsuit will vary depending on the unique circumstances of your case. Factors such as the age and earning potential of the deceased, the extent of your emotional distress, and the financial impact of their death on your family will be considered.
