It is important to note that wrongful death lawsuits are not criminal offenses.
If a crime was committed that led to a death, it will be prosecuted by
the state rather than brought forth by the loved ones of the victim. The
statute of limitations for a wrongful death lawsuit is two years. The
sooner you get started, the better your chances will be of gathering all
the right evidence and building a strong case for a favorable outcome.
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
Unlike some states, Texas allows many parties to file a wrongful death
claim on behalf of a loved one. These parties include a surviving spouse,
children of the deceased, and parents, including adoptive parents. These
parties have the option to file a claim together or one of them may choose
to file a claim alone. A representative of the deceased estate is also
eligible to file a claim if no family member has filed one within three
months of the deceased’s passing, as long as a family member has
not requested that no claim be filed.
