What Is Wrongful Death?

If a death results from the actions or negligence of another person, surviving family members and survivors may sue for wrongful death. This sort of case is aimed at compensating for the losses suffered by the survivors. Some of the worst types of losses include the loss of companionship, lost income, and funeral expenses, among others.

Who Can File A Wrongful Death Lawsuit?


When a loved one dies as a result of another person’s legal wrongdoing, you may file a wrongful death claim. An at-fault person is someone who caused an accident, such as a motorist in a vehicle collision, a bartender who served alcohol to a customer that then drove, or a doctor or medical professional. Others include business owners who failed to maintain their property, as well as others.

Wrongful death claims are governed by a different set of rules in each state. The state’s wrongful death laws usually define who is authorized to sue for damages and set limits on the amount that may be compensated. These sorts of claims are made to help orphaned and widowed individuals financially. In Texas, spouses, parents, and children of the deceased may bring a wrongful death lawsuit. 

When Wrongful Death Claims Apply


Wrongful death claims might be filed following a situation where a victim who was able to legally pursue a wrongful death claim against another individual dies as a result of the defendant’s acts. The following are just a few examples of circumstances that may lead to this happening:

  • Vehicle Accidents

Victims may suffer severe injury or death when a passenger or commercial vehicle is in an accident. Single vehicle accidents may also cause serious injury or death as a result of negligence, error, or product defect. The following are examples of driving negligence: being intoxicated while operating a motor vehicle, failing to follow traffic regulations, and reckless driving.

  • Medical Malpractice

A wrongful death claim may be filed against a doctor and other medical care providers if the condition that caused a person’s death went untreated or if the doctor acted negligently with the treatment they gave to the victim and the patient died as a result of this negligence, according to established medical malpractice laws.

  • Workplace Accidents

Workplace accidents can trigger a worker’s compensation claim. However, a fatal accident in the workplace may lead to a wrongful death claim against the employer or any number of other parties that may have been negligent in causing the accident. 

These are the most common, though not exhaustive list of types of wrongful death. Other types of wrongful death include dog and animal attacks and criminal acts. There is no set list of actions resulting in death that may be part of a wrongful death claim

Elements Of Wrongful Death Lawsuits

Several factors must be present in order to file a personal injury or wrongful death claim:

  • The death of another person as a result of someone’s carelessness or desire to cause harm.
  • Monetary losses for the surviving family members as a result of the death.
  • Appointment of a personal representative for the decedent’s estate.

You must file a wrongful death claim within the prescribed time limits set forth by the statute of limitations for the state where the individual died. In Texas, the statute of limitations for wrongful death is two years from the date the cause of action arises. If an inquiry into the victim’s death does not reveal the cause of action until later, you may submit a complaint after this period if an investigation does not establish a cause of action until then.

Damages In Wrongful Death Lawsuits


Pecuniary damages are the most common type of compensation sought in a wrongful death claim. The loss of services, aid, medical expenses, funeral costs, and the potential inheritance are all examples of pecuniary losses.

Many states, including Texas, follow negligence laws that define who is eligible for compensation and what type of damages the court can grant in a wrongful death case. Each state’s statute will usually say that the payment in a wrongful death suit reflects fair compensation for pecuniary or financial losses directly connected with the person’s death.

If a person who shared in the deceased’s estate took care of or paid for the medical care and funeral expenses, they may be entitled to compensation. Interest payments might also be included in a damage award beginning from the date of death.

How Hard Is It to Prove Wrongful Death?


The burden of proof in a wrongful death claim may be difficult to meet. Your wrongful death lawyer will need to collect evidence that demonstrates the elements of the case. These costs might be recovered through bringing in expert witnesses who charge hundreds of dollars per hour. Your attorney will reimburse these expenses at the outset and invoice you later when you receive your settlement.

How Are Wrongful Death Settlement Amounts Determined?

The amount of your wrongful death payment is determined by a number of variables, including the deceased person’s age. Any medical bills and funeral and burial expenses, as well as the worth of your pain and suffering according to the multiplier or per diem approach, will be taken into account.

How Are Wrongful Death Settlements Paid Out?


When a personal injury lawsuit is resolved, the party at fault will reimburse your lawyer with a check for the full value of the settlement. At that time, the lawyer will pay the appropriate awards to the wrongful death claimants
