Texas laws state that wrongful death claims can be filed if the cause of death was due to wrongful act, negligence, carelessness, unskillfulness, or ill intentions of another person, organization, or corporation. As of 2014, 135,928 Americans fell victims to fatal injuries, making it the fourth leading cause of death in the country, falling behind heart disease, cancer, and respiratory illness.
There are various causes of wrongful death, among include the following:
The leading cause of wrongful death in Texas is auto accidents, which accounts for 24% (3,534 lives) of the total fatal injuries based on 2014 statistics. 463 victims died from motorcycle accidents, while 486 were pedestrian casualties. On the other hand, workplace-related deaths in 2014 are 493. Whether or not the defendant who allegedly caused the death is capable of paying for the claims or not, most often the responsibility of providing appropriate compensation lies in the wrongdoer’s insurance company.
Under the Texas Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations, the surviving family members are required to file a lawsuit within two years of the victim’s death. Two years may seem like a long leeway, but make no mistake: It is important to file for claims as soon as possible to avoid complications, to settle the affairs in order, and to gather that all the necessary documents and statements for your case. Your wrongful death attorney will also need a sufficient amount of time to draft a lawsuit, conduct an investigation, and complete all the paperwork.
Regardless of the cause of the accident, handling a wrongful death claim is rarely straightforward. The plaintiffs in the claim needs to establish the same compelling evidence if the victim had lived. If necessary, the family or any estate representative of the deceased will also need to go through interviews, cross examinations, and thorough backtrack of the events that lead or are related to the fatal accident. If you just suffered a loss of a loved one, these are not exactly the easiest things to go through.

The surviving spouse, the children, and the parents of the deceased are considered the immediate family members eligible for wrongful death claims in Texas. An adopted child is also eligible if the adoption process was fully completed under Texas laws. The estate representative/s, on the other hand, can file for survival action once the conditions are met.
