What Is a Wrongful Death?

In legal terms, a wrongful death occurs when an individual is killed as a result of negligence. This negligence can be the fault of another person, a company, a manufacturer, or any other entity. In order to hold these parties accountable, one must show that his or her loved one was killed as a direct result of a negligent action or inaction.

Common Causes of Wrongful Death

Some examples of wrongful death include the loss of a loved one or family member as a result of:

Who is Eligible to File a Wrongful Death Claim?

Understanding who is eligible to file a wrongful death claim is essential in seeking justice for the departed. In Texas, the law specifies that the surviving spouse, children, and parents of the deceased are qualified to file a wrongful death claim. Additionally, adoptive parents and adopted children may also file a claim. If no immediate family members step forward, the executor or administrator of the deceased's estate may pursue legal action.

What is the Statute of Limitations for a Wrongful Death Claim in Texas?

Time is of the essence when filing a wrongful death claim in the state of Texas. The statute of limitations helps dictate the timeframe within which legal action must be initiated. In the Lone Star State, the statute of limitations for wrongful death claims is typically two years from the date of the deceased person's passing.

It is crucial to act promptly and consult with our knowledgeable attorneys at The Zambrano Law Firm to ensure that your case is filed within the prescribed timeframe. Failure to meet this deadline could lead to the loss of your right to seek compensation and justice for the wrongful death of a loved one.

What Damages Could Be Recovered in a Wrongful Death Claim?

Families facing the aftermath of a wrongful death are often burdened with emotional and financial challenges. Pursuing a wrongful death claim allows eligible parties to seek compensation for various damages incurred as a result of the tragedy.

  • Economic Damages: This category includes quantifiable financial losses such as medical costs, funeral and burial expenses, loss of future earnings, and the value of services the deceased would have provided.
  • Non-Economic Damages: While more challenging to quantify, non-economic damages encompass the emotional and intangible losses experienced by the surviving family members. This could include pain and suffering, the loss of companionship, and mental anguish.
  • Punitive Damages: In instances where the responsible party's actions were particularly egregious, punitive damages may be awarded to punish and deter similar conduct in the future.
