Does "negligence per se" apply to car accidents in Texas?

The act of driving a car requires the person behind the wheel to observe a wide range of traffic safety laws, which govern activities like speed limits, right-of-way, acceptable turns and passing, insurance requirements, and much more. All of these laws can be found in Texas statutes.

Wrongful death and survival actions in Texas

When someone dies in a fatal car crash, or in any accident caused by the negligence of another party, family members of the deceased family might have a right to compensation.  Under the Civil Practice and Remedies Code of the state of Texas, the spouse, child or children, and the parents of the accident victim may make a claim for damages against whoever caused the death. This is known as a wrongful death claim, and the lawsuit filed to pursue the claim is referred to as a wrongful death action.
