Forney Wrongful Death Lawyer

If a family member of yours has passed away as a result of the wrongful act of another, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit under the Texas wrongful death statute. The law allows spouses, children and parents to bring a claim and receive compensation if their loved one dies as a result of a wrongful act. The law does not allow siblings or grandparents to bring a wrongful death claim. Adopted children can bring a wrongful death claim for the death of an adoptive parent but not of a biological parent. And adult children can bring a wrongful death claim.

The law allows you to recover for both economic and emotional damages. For example, you can recover for economic damages such as the loss of the deceased’s earning capacity. And you can recover for the emotional impact of a wrongful death such as the mental anguish that occurs when you lose a family member and the loss of love and companionship of your family member. And exemplary damages can be recovered if the other party acted willfully or with gross negligence.

Wrongful Death Compared to Survival Claims

There is a difference between a wrongful death claim and a survival claim. A survival claim is a personal injury claim that the deceased’s heir or estate representative can bring because it’s a claim that the deceased could have brought themselves if they had survived the accident. A wrongful death claim is one that the deceased’s family members can bring on their own.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Guest and Gray law firm is wonderful. I have had the chance to work with three of the lawyers and they all have been wonderful. They will tell you when you need a lawyer and when you don't. They actually try to save you money. They respond very fast to questions and try to help you understand what is going on. They are caring and are really judgment free. If I needed a lawyer again I would use this firm in a second and recommend them. K.K.
