How do I know if I can file a claim?

Texas law states that a wrongful death claim can be filed if another person’s “wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, unskillfulness, or default” results in the death of someone else. This can occur under almost any circumstances, such as a car accident, medical malpractice incident, or workplace accident. If family members wish to file a claim, they must do so within three months of the death. After this time period, the executor of the deceased person’s estate may choose to file instead.

All of the following individuals can file a claim on behalf of the deceased person:

  • Adult children over the death of a parent
  • An adoptive child over the death of an adoptive parent
  • Adoptive parents over the death of an adoptive child

Siblings cannot file a claim for the loss of their brother or sister. If the claim is successful, compensation may be awarded to the surviving family members. Compensation generally encompasses lost earning capacity, emotional suffering, lost companionship, and lost inheritance.

Our Dallas wrongful death attorneys are here to represent you!

In the midst of your pain and suffering, the last thing you need to worry about is taking legal action on behalf of your loved one.

We believe that our clients deserve the best, which is why we consistently go above and beyond the expectations set for us.
