Who Can File A Wrongful Death Claim In Texas?


In Texas, the statutory beneficiaries in wrongful death claims are limited to surviving spouses, children, and parents of the deceased. This implies that siblings and other distant relatives cannot bring such claims. A long-term partner or spouse who was not a formal or informal marital couple with the decedent is not permitted to submit a claim.

Stepparents and foster parents are unable to bring wrongful death claims. Stepchildren who are not legally adopted, on the other hand, can file wrongful death claims.

Wrongful Death Lawyers Of Texas is a legal firm that specializes in representing the families of individuals who have died as a result of someone else’s accident or negligence.

Wrongful Death Lawsuit Damages


It’s hard to quantify the loss of a loved one. There is, however, monetary compensation that bereaved family members can seek in a wrongful death lawsuit to ease the financial strain that accompanies such a difficult moment. The survivors’ emotional distress and suffering, loss of companionship, and the victim’s anticipated lifetime earnings are all examples of monetary damages.

Damages may include reimbursement or compensation for:

  • Sorrow, mental anguish, and solace which can include society, companionship, comfort, guidance, and advice given by the decedent
  • Loss of future income
  • Loss of services, protection, care and assistance
  • Medical expenses incurred as a result of negligence
  • Funeral and associated expenses
  • Punitive damages when willful or malicious conduct has occurred

Unfortunately, the insurance company of a defendant may try to minimize the damages to avoid paying more. To ensure that your family receives the compensation it is entitled to, you should contact a wrongful death lawyer immediately.

How Are Wrongful Death Settlements Paid Out?


A settlement is paid out in a wrongful death lawsuit in the same manner that a claim is paid. This is also known as the hierarchy or order of beneficiaries.

A percentage of the recovery is paid to all relevant legal, medical, estate, and memorial expenses before the beneficiaries receive compensation. This includes contingency fees charged by your wrongful death law firm as well as any hospital or medical expenditures associated with the decedent’s death.

Finally, after these expenses are addressed, the payout sequence is as follows:

  1. The surviving spouse
  2. Children of the deceased person, in order of dependency
  3. Grandchildren of the deceased person
  4. Parents of the deceased
  5. Siblings of the deceased person
  6. Dependent relative household members

Typically, the defendant’s insurance company will pay the compensation. The amount will vary, but when it goes above the policy limit of the insurer, the person is responsible for paying the rest.

Wrongful death cases are difficult to handle because they require compassion as well as legal experience and knowledge.

How much Is A Typical Wrongful Death Settlement Worth?


We want to start by assuring families who are asking this question that it is normal to be concerned about it. We realize that financial difficulties don’t automatically go away when a loved one dies. In reality, the damage is frequently exacerbated by it. This is especially true when a dying loved one interrupts a surviving loved one’s earning capability, or when an individual was the family’s only income earner.

Because each family’s situation is unique, providing a general answer without first evaluating case particulars is difficult. Furthermore, bar rules prohibit attorneys from guaranteeing any outcome for their clients.

However, a lawyer for a wrongful death will be able to provide you an estimate for the value of your case based on several variables. These factors will include:

  • The Type Of Wrongful Death Lawsuit Being Filed.

     Whether it was a defective product, a work-related accident, or a drunk driving incident that killed your loved one, the numerous case sorts will result in higher or lower compensation. A worker’s compensation claim does not compensate for pain and suffering, as do other types of personal injury claims. On top of that, juries might modify the outcome of cases in which negligence was completely avoidable, such as in drunk driving incidents.

  • Economic Damages. 

    All of these expenses are related to the death of a person. The loss of life involves numerous monetary costs, including projected income loss, medical bills, insurance payments, benefits, funeral or burial costs, and so on. An expert may be hired by a wrongful death attorney to compute these losses.

  • Non-economic damages.

     The pain and suffering that losing a loved one creates is unquestionably the most severe tragedy for families. In the legal world, it’s referred to as “pain and suffering,” loss of companionship, loss of consortium, grief, or decreased enjoyment of life for surviving family members. Depending on the state, these sorts of compensation might or may not be available via a jury verdict.

  • Punitive Damages.

     Punitive damages are levied as a penalty when someone’s negligence resulted in an especially bad, shocking, or off-putting act. A wrongful death law firm may seek punitive compensation in cases where reckless or intentional behavior resulted in the victim’s death, such as a drunk driving accident.

The best approach to calculate your unique case value is to consult with Wrongful Death Lawyers Of Texas. When it comes to calculating the highest possible value for your losses, we’ll take you through every step and look at all possibilities.
