In Texas, the surviving spouse, children, and parents of the deceased person have the right to file a wrongful death claim. If there are no surviving spouses, children, or parents, then the executor or administrator of the deceased person’s estate can file the claim. It is important to note that the statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death claim in Texas is two years from the deceased person’s death date.
In Texas, the damages that may be available in a wrongful death claim include:
Medical expenses related to the deceased person’s final injury or illness
Funeral and burial expenses
Lost earning capacity of the deceased person
Loss of companionship, love, and emotional support
Mental anguish and emotional distress
