Filing A Wrongful Death Claim

When a loved one is killed because of the actions or negligence of another person, the family may be entitled to compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit. These terrible losses result from preventable accidents, and the victims’ families deserve justice. Many innocent, beloved lives are lost as a result of careless behavior, and a personal injury lawyer may be able to help you file a claim if a family member was killed in these types of situations:

Who Can File A Wrongful Death Claim Or Suit In Texas

Wrongful death claims are usually filed by spouses or immediate family members. Some situations allow life partners, financial dependents, and putative spouse to file wrongful death claims as well. Children and spouses have the right to recover compensation in all fifty states; domestic partners, life partners, and dependents can recover compensation some states. In Texas, common law spouses are allowed to file wrongful death claims and lawsuits. In addition to biological children, adopted children are granted the right to file wrongful death claims. The term “adopted” only refers to children who were formally adopted by their non-biological parents. Biological children of unmarried parents and divorced parents may file this type of claim or lawsuit in Texas. However, Texas law does not allow siblings or same-sex spouses to file for wrongful death. To learn more about your options through a wrongful death claim, contact the Loewy Law Firm today.
