From there, your lawyer can handle the paperwork required to file a wrongful death case for you in Round Rock. Throughout your case, your lawyer can provide compassionate support and assistance.

What Are Texas’s Wrongful Death Laws?

It’s important to know at least a few of the basic laws that may apply to your wrongful death case in Round Rock. Otherwise, you could make a serious mistake, such as missing your deadline to file.

Grounds to File

In Texas, a fatal injury or illness must be caused by another person’s or entity’s “wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, unskillfulness or default” to have grounds for a wrongful death claim, according to Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code § 71.002. In general, if the deceased person had survived the accident and would have been entitled to file a personal injury lawsuit, surviving family members can file a wrongful death claim.

Rules on Who Can File

Under Texas law, only certain surviving family members of the deceased individual have the legal right to file a wrongful death claim. This right belongs solely to the decedent’s surviving spouse, children, and parents in the first three months after the date of death. After this period, a representative or administrator of the decedent’s estate must file the claim.

Statute of Limitations

In Texas, you have a strict time limit of two years from the date of the death to file a wrongful death claim under the state’s statute of limitations. Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code § 16.003 states: “A person must bring suit not later than two years after the day the cause of action accrues in an action for injury resulting in death. The cause of action accrues on the death of the injured person.”
