Who can bring a wrongful death claim in Texas?

Texas law allows certain relatives to bring a wrongful death action when someone dies because of another person’s intentional, negligent, or reckless action. The law is designed to help compensate you financially when a loved one dies. A wrongful death action can be filed by the deceased person’s parent, child, husband, or wife. You do not need to be mentioned in a person’s will to bring a wrongful death action; you only need to be a qualifying relative.

Recovery by Parents:

Parents mainly may recover for the loss of companionship as well as for mental anguish. Depending on the age of the child, parents may also recover the value of services or financial contributions that the child would have provided.

Recovery by Spouse:

A surviving spouse may recover damages for loss of companionship, mental anguish, financial contributions, and the financial value of intangible services that the deceased spouse would have provided.

Recovery by Child:

A surviving child may recover damages for the loss of companionship and mental anguish. A child who is younger than 18 may also recover the value of maintenance and services which would have paid to raise and educate the child.
