If one person causes the death of someone else because of a wrongful act, negligence, carelessness, unskillfulness, or default (Section 71.001 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code), family members can file a Wrongful Death Claim.
In the State of Texas, eligible parties that want to file a Wrongful Death Claim must file a wrongful death lawsuit within two (2) years of the decedent’s death. This two-year limit is known as the statute of limitations and begins at the date of death except in certain situations.
You may be understandably hesitant to file a wrongful death claim while dealing with the loss of a loved one, please be aware that if you wait too long, you essentially forfeit your opportunity to seek damages for you and your family.
