There are no words to describe the pain associated with losing a loved one before his or her time. However when the death was caused due to the negligence of another individual, it can be especially difficult to process. While nothing can replace what you have lost, it is important to realize that you have a legal right to bring a wrongful death claim. With help from the right attorney, you and your family may be able to secure fair financial compensation.

The Two Types Of Wrongful Death Claims
In Texas, there are two types of wrongful death claims. The first is a wrongful death claim that family members bring on behalf of themselves. This addresses what the family has lost, including:
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of parental guidance and support
- Loss of financial support of a spouse or parent
The second type of claim is called a survival action. This lawsuit is brought on behalf of the deceased, by the deceased’s estate. This can include compensation for:
- Pain and suffering before death
- Medical expenses before death
- Funeral expenses
