What Is “Wrongful Death?”

A “wrongful death” occurs when someone is killed as a result of another person or entity’s negligence. According to law, negligence can mean any action or inaction that is careless, reckless, or intentional in nature and that directly or indirectly leads to death.

Some of the most common causes of wrongful death include but are not limited to:

Compassion, Understanding & Commitment

At Harmonson Law Firm, we understand that if you are pursuing a wrongful death case, you are suffering with each day that goes by without answers. The death of your loved one should not be disregarded as a fluke or an unavoidable act if someone else is responsible.

It is not fair to you, your family, or the deceased. Instead, our firm can help you fight for justice and accountability. No matter the cause of your loved one’s death, our El Paso wrongful death lawyer is prepared to help you navigate the legal system and fight for the justice you deserve.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Texas?

Wrongful death lawsuits may only be filed by certain members of a decedent's family. In Texas, the parents, biological children, and surviving spouse of the deceased may pursue a wrongful death claim. Adopted children may also file wrongful death claims if the adoption was fully and legally completed. Unfortunately, surviving grandparents and siblings, whether biological or adopted, do not have the ability to file a wrongful death claim under Texas law.

Any family member listed above may file a wrongful death claim on their own or jointly with other eligible family members. If no family members file a claim within three months of the death, a claim may be filed by an executor on behalf of the estate.

Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations

It is important to note that wrongful death lawsuits are subject to a legal deadline known as a "statute of limitations" which limits the amount of time that surviving family members have to seek damages. Wrongful death lawsuits in Texas must be filed within two years of the decedent's death. If you file a claim after this deadline has expired, your case will almost certainly be thrown out of court and you will be permanently barred from pursuing further legal action.

While certain limited scenarios can extend this timeline, it is best to assume that your lawsuit must be brought before the second anniversary of your loved one's passing. Since wrongful death cases can be extremely complex, it is best to contact an attorney as soon as possible to allow the proper time to investigate your claim.
