If my spouse was killed in an accident, am I eligible for compensation?

Texas law allows for an individual to bring a wrongful death lawsuit if their spouse’s death resulted from the “wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, unskillfulness, or default” of another person or entity. Additionally, the surviving children, parents, or in some cases, estate executor, may also be eligible to file a lawsuit.

Through a wrongful death lawsuit in Texas, personal injury claimants may be able to receive compensation for loss of the deceased’s future earning potential, the care they would have provided to the family, companionship, inheritance, as well as compensation for emotional pain and suffering resulting from the untimely passing of the deceased.
