What is a Wrongful Death lawsuit?
The term “wrongful death” is a term used by attorneys and judges to refer to a death that was caused by a wrongful act of another person or company. A simple way of looking at it is like this: you have a right to sue the person who killed your parent or child.
In Texas, wrongful death actions can be applied to any circumstance where a defendant’s bad conduct caused the death, including in:
- motor-vehicle accidents (driver was at-fault, caused the collision which killed the other driver)
- semi-truck accidents; medical malpractice (doctor broke the rules of the medical profession which caused patient to die)
- civil rights cases (officer shoots a suspect who is not threatening)
Who can bring a Wrongful Death lawsuit in Texas?
The wrongful death lawsuit must be brought by the personal representative of the deceased’s estate. The court, usually in a probate action, will appoint one or more people as the personal representative(s). However, just because the personal representative brings the suit does not entitle them to the damages recovered. The proceeds recovered by the suit, whether by judgment or settlement, are distributed according to State law and depend on the type of damages recovered.
