COSTS OF WRONGFUL DEATH
Families and dependents of individuals who are wrongfully killed are left to deal with the following expenses:
- Funeral expenses
- Lost wages
- Medical bills
- Prescriptions and other pain management or treatment costs
- Loss of companionship
Although nothing can bring a loved one back, taking legal action against the responsible party can help the family obtain compensation to cover these costs and prevent financial burdens from accruing. Our Austin wrongful death attorneys are here to help you pursue justice on behalf of your lost loved one.
In addition to a wrongful death claim, a survival action claim may be filed on behalf of the deceased's estate in Texas. This type of claim seeks to compensate the estate of the deceased for expenses incurred as a result of their untimely death, as opposed to a wrongful death claim which seeks to compensate the surviving family members of the estate.
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
In Texas, a parent, spouse or adult children of the deceased may file a wrongful death claim. This includes adopted children and parents of adopted children as long as the adoption was complete and legal. An adopted child, however, may not file a claim on behalf of a biological parent. In some cases, it is possible for a representative of the deceased's estate to file a claim, unless the surviving family members of the deceased's estate specifically request them not to. Texas, unfortunately, does not allow siblings to file a wrongful death claim.
