Fatal Accident and Wrongful Death in Texas

Nothing is worse than losing a loved one or child in a preventable accident.  Knowing that the accident could have been prevented and should not have occurred to take away your loved one or child makes this situation unbearable.

Texas has laws that provide monetary recovery to the surviving parents, spouses, beneficiaries, and dependents of a person killed by the negligence of a person or business. 

The Texas Wrongful Death Statute

Under the Texas Wrongful Death Statute, a victim’s spouse, children, and parents may be compensated for the loss of the victim.

The Texas Wrongful Death Statute states that “a person is liable for damages arising from an injury that causes an individual’s death if the injury was caused by the person’s or his agent’s or servant’s wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, unskillfulness, or default.” Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code §71.004(b).  Under this statute, a lawsuit may be brought by a plaintiff who will “stand in the shoes” of the victim.
