Wrongful Death

Preserving the Rights of Your Loved One

Texas law (Section 71.001) states that a wrongful death occurs when the “wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, unskillfulness, or default” of one party leads to the death of another party. In 2013, there were 130,557 people who died unintentionally in the U.S.

If your loved one has been the victim of wrongful death due to medical negligence or malpractice, a willful act, or the carelessness of someone else, you have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Even in their absence, your family member still deserves to have their rights upheld and you deserve to be compensated for the unexpected medical bills, funeral costs, and pain and hardship this negligence has caused you and your family.

You can file a wrongful death claim only if you are a certain family member of the decedent. If you are their surviving spouse, their child, their legally and fully adopted child, or their parent, you have the right to bring a claim to a wrongful death attorney.
