Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

Texas law allows only a select few individuals to file a wrongful death lawsuit:

  • A surviving spouse
  • Any surviving children, including legally adopted children
  • Any surviving parents, including legal adoptive parents

Should none of the above decide to file a wrongful death suit within 3 months, the executor of the deceased’s estate may elect to do so.

Unfortunately, these are the only individuals who can file a suit. Siblings, non-married romantic partners, grandparents, and other relations cannot.

Compensation for a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Funeral Expenses

The person responsible for your loved one’s death can be held financially liable for any medical or funeral expenses resulting from the accident that led to your loved one’s death.

Lost Earnings & Inheritance

You may depend on your loved one’s income for survival, and losing it can put you and your family in jeopardy. Biggs & Greenslade can help secure your future.

Loss of Services

A parent or spouse provides a variety of services to a household, including domestic services and others. The responsible party may be held liable for the loss of those services.

Loss of Care

A spouse, parent, or child provides emotional support, care, love, and other things that are difficult or impossible to quantify, but the responsible party is financially liable for their loss.

Emotional Pain

The mental anguish and emotional pain of a loved one’s loss can’t be quantified, but judges and juries often award surviving family members compensation for that pain.

And More

Judges and juries may award what’s commonly known as “punitive damages” in cases where the guilty party is extremely negligent. If appropriate, we’ll fight to ensure they do.
