Recovering Damages In Wrongful Death Cases

Texas’ wrongful death statute allows spouses, children or parents to file a single wrongful death claim seeking economic and noneconomic damages, including:

  • Lost wages and loss of future income
  • Losses of society, companionship, parental guidance and support
  • Mental anguish
  • Funeral costs

Texas’ personal injury and wrongful death laws also allow claims to be brought on behalf of decedents for damages suffered prior to death. This is known as a survival claim. Damages recoverable in a survival claim include:

  • Medical expenses incurred prior to death
  • Pain and suffering damages
  • Property damages
  • Punitive damages

Wrongful death cases often require a thorough investigation and frequently involve complex medical issues that can be very difficult to explain to a judge or jury in clear and concise terms. We are well-equipped to meet these challenges, and have the knowledge and litigation skills to take your opponent and their insurance company to trial.
