Who Can File a Wrongful Death Suit?

Texas is unique when it comes to wrongful death claims. Unlike other states, Texas allows many parties to file a claim on behalf of a loved one.

Parties that can file include:

  • A surviving spouse
  • Children of the deceased
  • Parents (including adoptive parents)

These parties can either choose to file jointly or have one member file individually. Additionally, a representative of the deceased's estate can file a claim if no family member has done so within three months of their passing, as long as no family member has requested that no claim be filed.

Our lawyers in Dallas are committed to guiding you through every step of the process and fighting for your rights. Let us help bring peace of mind during this difficult time.

Texas Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations

The state of Texas has a two-year statute of limitations for wrongful death lawsuits. This means that if you wish to seek compensation for the death of a loved one, you must file a wrongful death claim within two years of the date of their passing.

As this time frame is limited, it is crucial to take action as soon as possible to ensure your legal rights are protected, and you have the best chance of achieving a positive outcome in your case.
