Filing a Wrongful Death Claim

In essence, wrongful death law allows beneficiaries and dependents of victims who died as the result of another person's negligence or intentional actions to seek compensation and justice for their loss.

Wrongful death law in Texas states that the basic factors in order to file a claim are that:

  • Death occurred because of the conduct of another person or entity
  • This person or entity was negligent or strictly liable for the individual's death
  • There is a surviving spouse, children, beneficiary or dependent
  • The person's death caused monetary damages

Common Types of Wrongful Death Cases

Although this list does not include everything, some of more common types of wrongful death cases include:

  • Car accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Slip and fall injuries
  • Medical malpractice
  • Criminal acts
  • Product liability

In order to be successful in a wrongful death case you must be able to prove that death was caused either in whole or part by the actions and conduct of the defendant.
