Who can file a wrongful death claim?

When a loved one is lost, it can bring frustration and overwhelming emotion. The good news is that there are legal options for securing justice on behalf of your loved one.

The following individual may file a claim of wrongful death:

  • Spouses or partners
  • Children (whether dependent or not)
  • Adopted children
  • Adoptive parents

Any of these individuals may choose to file separately or together following the death of a loved one. Unfortunately, siblings are not allowed to file wrongful death claims in Texas. It is important to understand that wrongful death claims can only be made for monetary damages and will not have an impact on any criminal proceedings or trials.

What can be obtained in a wrongful death claim?

Similar to other injury claims, a wrongful death claim can be filed to compensate family members and loved ones who were emotionally, financially, and physically dependent on the lost loved.

These damages can include the following:

  • Loss of earning capacity for a family
  • Loss of care, counsel, maintenance, and support
  • Mental and emotional pain and suffering
  • Loss of love, companionship, and comfort
  • Loss of inheritance that children would have received
  • Funeral costs and related hospital bills

In some cases, exemplary damages may be awarded. These are reserved for cases involving a willful act or gross negligence. These damages are used to punish the wrongdoer and essentially aims to curb similar incidents from happening in the future.

If you need to move forward with filing a wrongful death claim, reach out to our Friendswood firm right away or fill out a free case evaluation. We are here to provide the support you need.
