What Is Considered a "Wrongful Death" in Texas?
In Texas, a wrongful death occurs when:
- A person is killed due to the negligence of another.
- A person is killed due to the negligence of a third party.
- A person is killed due to a defective product.
- A person dies due to a doctor's malpractice.
In these cases, the family of the deceased may be able to file a wrongful death claim. In Texas, the statute of limitations for wrongful death claims is two years from the date of the loved one's passing. If you wait too long to file your claim, you could miss your opportunity to hold those at fault for your loved one’s death accountable and recover the compensation you need.
