Wrongful Death in Texas

According to Texas Statute 71.002, a person can be held liable if an individual's death is caused by "the person's or his agent's or servant's wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, unskillfulness, or default." When an individual or corporation acts negligently or violates their duty to act with reasonable care, they can be held responsible. This is absolutely crucial when such negligence or wrongdoing claims an innocent life.

Texas Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations

According to Texas Statute 16.003, a wrongful death claim must be filed within two-years of the date of the death. This is why it is vital, even in the midst of a difficult time, to contact a wrongful death attorney as soon as possible.

Compensation for Wrongful Death Claims

A wrongful death may be described as a fatality that is the result of a corporation or another person’s reckless acts, carelessness, or negligence. In Texas, surviving family members are entitled to compensation for:

  • Suffering
  • Pain
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of companionship
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Future and present financial losses
  • Out of pocket expenses
  • Medical expenses

The amount that one can receive depends upon:

  • The health and age of the victim
  • Life expectancy
  • The degree of loss

In many cases, these variables are argued aggressively by life insurance companies, who seek to pay as little as possible to the surviving family. For this reason, it is important to seek and retain professional legal representation.

In some cases, wrongful death suits are settled out of court. As a San Antonio wrongful death lawyer, Troy does everything within his power to settle your case out of court but will litigate on your behalf if necessary to seek the best possible outcome. Thanks to Troy’s experience and our team’s diligent efforts, many of our wrongful death cases are settled long before the arrival of a trial date.
