Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

Under Texas law, only a few individuals are eligible to file wrongful death lawsuits, including:

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

Suppose these family members don’t file a wrongful death suit within three months of the death. In that case, the executor or administrator of the decedent’s estate is allowed to unless every eligible family member with the right to file explicitly opts not to pursue the lawsuit.

Compensation for A Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Funeral Expenses

Losing a loved one is emotionally devastating, and the financial burden that follows adds to the distress. The individual responsible for your relative’s death may be held accountable for covering any medical or funeral expenses.

Lost Earnings & Inheritance

Losing a primary breadwinner's income can throw a family into financial jeopardy, threatening their ability to maintain a stable future. Biggs & Greenslade helps you get compensation for lost earnings or more.

Loss of Services

The absence of essential services your loved one provided leaves a huge void in a household. The responsible party might be held accountable for the loss of those domestic services.

Loss of Care

A spouse, parent, or child provides emotional support and care. The person responsible for your relative’s wrongful death may be held financially responsible for their loss.

Emotional Pain

The emotional toll of losing a relative is overwhelming, making it challenging to navigate daily life without the support you once had. Sometimes, judges and juries give family members compensation for their emotional pain.

And More

In cases of extreme negligence, compensatory damages may not be enough. Pursuing justice may involve punitive measures against the guilty party, preventing similar incidents in the future. In these cases, we fight for punitive damages.
