Who Can File A Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Texas?

In Texas, the surviving spouse, children, or parents of the person who has died in a wrongful death may file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. Should none of these family members exist, a suit can be filed by the deceased person’s estate representative.

Types of Compensation for Wrongful Death Survivors

Compensation from a wrongful death suit may include:

  • funeral and burial expenses,
  • medical expenses, and the pain and suffering endured by the deceased prior to passing away
  • as well as the loss of financial support, companionship, and mental anguish for the surviving family members.

We Take the Complex Cases

Defense lawyers are skilled at downplaying the events of a wrongful death in order to keep a jury verdict low, and they are even likely to cast some or all of the fault back on your loved one. Don’t let them convince you that your loved one was responsible for something he/she wasn’t.

Peckham Martin, PLLC has more than 60 years of combined experience and we believe that one of the most important steps on your journey to justice comes from the jury’s declaration that your loved one was not responsible for his/her death.

Even if other attorneys tell you that you don’t have a case or that it’s just too difficult, reach out us. We have experience handling complex litigation that other attorneys decline to handle.
