Has your parent, child, or spouse died as a result of another person’s or entity’s negligence? Has someone you love died as the result of the violent act of another individual? Whether intentional or unintentional, the state of Texas allows those left behind to seek compensation.
Wrongful death is an area of personal injury law that is separate from criminal law. In other words, criminal charges such as murder are separate from civil action such as a wrongful death suit. If you believe your situation qualifies as wrongful death suit, experienced personal injury counsel is key.
Wrongful death was originally enacted to provide for the spouse and children left behind by the deceased. Presently, the statutory beneficiaries authorized to file a wrongful death suit in the State of Texas are the deceased’s surviving spouse, children, and parents.
