What Are Wrongful Death Laws in Texas?

A wrongful death is one caused by someone else’s carelessness, negligence, or wrongful act. In the state of Texas, the surviving spouse, children, or parents of the deceased person may file a wrongful death claim. If they do not file a claim within three months of the date of the death, the executor or personal representative of the deceased person’s estate may file a claim – unless a surviving family member requests that a claim is not filed. Our experienced fatal accident legal team can help you understand all laws associated with wrongful death in Houston.
