Nothing is more traumatic than the loss of a loved one, especially when the death occurs as the result of someone else’s negligence or intentional conduct. In Texas, if an individual or entity causes harm to a person, whether intentionally or negligently, and the injuries ultimately result in that person’s death, then surviving family members can seek compensation from the responsible person or entity in a wrongful death lawsuit. Even if the responsible party is cleared of all criminal charges for the victim’s death, family members may still pursue a wrongful death action in civil court.
True, a wrongful death lawsuit will not bring your lost family member back or eliminate the pain you are feeling, but it can hold accountable the party who has taken your family member from you prematurely and provide you with compensation to cover pain and suffering, funeral expenses, lost wages, and medical expenses. Wrongful death actions are most commonly brought to recover damages from other individuals, insurance companies, entities, employers, medical facilities, and government agencies.
