At The Daspit Law Firm, we have worked with many families who experienced tragedies in which their loved ones were killed in preventable accidents. Although nothing can make up for the loss of a loved one, these families came to our firm with the intent to secure justice on behalf of their wronged family members, hold wrongdoers accountable, and secure compensation for their emotional and financial losses through a wrongful death claim.

Wrongful death claims allow certain eligible family members to pursue compensation in cases involving the preventable death of a loved one. For example, families of victims killed in drunk driving accidents have the right to file wrongful death claims in order to recover compensation for damages that may include:

  • Medical expenses & funeral costs
  • Loss of companionship & financial support
  • Loss of enjoyment or quality of life
  • Mental anguish / emotional injuries

Under Texas’ wrongful death statute, only certain family members of a decedent (the victim who passed away) are eligible to file wrongful death lawsuits and recover compensation. These family members include:

  • Surviving spouse
  • Surviving children
  • Parents of the victim

Because cases and situations vary, it is in your best interests to have your case reviewed personally by an experienced attorney familiar with Texas wrongful death laws. A personal discussion can help you learn more about your legal rights, whether you have grounds to file a claim, and how our team can help you fight for justice and the maximum compensation possible.
