How Does Texas Define Wrongful Death and Survivorship Claims?

Texas wrongful death and survival laws are tricky; call us at (972) 434-1555 to talk to an attorney to guide you through the process.  

In the United States, every state has specific laws regarding wrongful death and the compensation available to those filing the claim. While our team will provide you with a more in-depth explanation of the current legislation that impacts your claim, The Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code section 71 sets out the basics of the law regarding wrongful death and survivorship claims (Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code §§ 71.001.). 

In Texas, wrongful death claims may only be brought by a deceased person’s surviving spouse, children, and/or parents. If the deceased is not survived by a parent, child, or spouse, do not let a wrongful death attorney tell you that no claim exists. This is a common mistake inexperienced wrongful death attorneys make.  

Distant relatives may be able to bring what is called a survivorship lawsuit on behalf of the deceased, and we have successfully represented nephews, nieces, aunts, and siblings of deceased individuals in bringing these claims.  

Our team at the Kuzmich Law Firm, P.C. stays up-to-date on vital laws that may impact your lawsuit and claim.  Steve Kuzmich is one of the less than 2% of all Lewisville wrongful death attorneys board certified in personal injury law who can legally state he is an expert in personal injury law to guide your family in such a difficult time.  

Types of Damages Awarded in a Texas Wrongful Death Claims

Common recoverable damages in wrongful death and survivorship claims in Texas include the following:

  • Medical expenses before the individual’s passing, including:
    • Surgical Fees
    • Medications
    • Nursing and Attention
    • Emergency Transportation
  • Funeral expenses or cremation fees
  • Grief or anguish
  • Loss of companionship and consortium
  • Loss of support and assistance
  • Loss or diminishment of inheritance

While no amount of compensation could ever account for your loss, it can relieve a significant weight off your shoulders and ensure the responsible parties are brought to justice.
