Understanding Wrongful Death Benefits
Wrongful death benefits are intended to provide financial support to the surviving family members who have suffered a loss due to someone else’s wrongful actions. Although the specific benefits available may vary depending on the circumstances and applicable laws, they often include the following:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Medical expenses related to the final injury or illness
- Loss of financial support and future income
- Loss of companionship and consortium
- Emotional pain and survival
Who Can File A Wrongful Death Claim?
In Texas, certain family members have the right to file a wrongful death claim on behalf of the deceased. Those eligible to file a claim include:
- Children, including adopted children
- Parents, including adoptive parents
It’s important to understand that the statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death claim in Texas is generally two years from the date of the loved one’s passing. Acting promptly is crucial to protect your rights and ensure a thorough investigation of the circumstances surrounding the wrongful death.
