Wrongful Death Lawyer in Texas: When do you need one?

A wrongful death has occurred when a person is killed due to the negligence or other liability of another person or entity. Surviving beneficiaries and dependents are entitled to monetary damages in instances of wrongful death.

The basic elements of a wrongful death claim are:

  • Death caused by the conduct of another person or entity.
  • Person or entity was negligent, or strictly liable, for victim's death
  • There are surviving beneficiaries or dependents
  • Monetary damages have resulted from individual's death.

A "wrongful death" occurs when an individual's death was caused by another through wrongful conduct, whether by intentional or negligent means.

Wrongful death actions in Texas may be able to recover actual and punitive damages. In other words, one may be able to recover actual damages (medical and funeral expenses, loss of anticipated wages, loss of pension benefits) as well as damages for pain and suffering or mental anguish to the survivors. Contact a wrongful death lawyer to learn more.

In a wrongful death case, surviving beneficiaries include dependents, parents or the administrator of the estate of the individual who suffered the wrongful death.

The Texas wrongful death statute of limitations is two years, in most wrongful death cases, according to Chapter 16 of Texas Civil Practices and Remedies Code.
