Seeking Justice for Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one is always difficult, but when the death was caused by another’s intentional or unintentional negligent or malicious behavior, your family is left to deal with a heartbreaking mixture of shock, grief, betrayal, and anger.

Who Can Make a Wrongful Death Claim?

Specific laws in different jurisdictions nationwide can vary on who can file a wrongful death suit and the statute of limitations. As an example, under Texas law, the legal right to pursue a wrongful death action is limited to these groups:

Spouses, Children, and Parents:

These close family members can pursue a claim, and if they choose to do so, they must file the lawsuit within 90 days of the death. 

Adopted Children:

Children who are legally adopted can file a wrongful death action on behalf of their adoptive parent, but they cannot pursue a lawsuit related to the death of a biological parent.

Executors or Personal Representatives:

The executor or personal representative of the estate can file a wrongful death claim, but only if the close family members do not. If the family requests that a case not be pursued, the executor or representative must honor that decision.
