Family Members Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim

Texas only allows specific people to file a wrongful death claim after someone passes away in an accident or due to willful negligence. Family members who have the right to file a wrongful death claim include a surviving spouse, child, or parent. Typically, it is expected that a spouse would be the first to start the claim, but family members can decide together who will initiate it.

When no spouse, parent, or child starts a claim within three months of the deceased person’s passing, the law broadens a bit. At that point, the personal representative or executor of the deceased person’s estate can decide to start a claim before the state’s two-year statute of limitations expires. However, if all surviving spouses, children, and parents agree that no legal action should be taken, then the executor will not have this option.

Calculating the damages owed to you and your family for the loss of a loved one can be a painful experience. It might feel wrong to try to put a price on what you have lost. Truly, you cannot.
