Can anyone bring a wrongful death lawsuit?

January 25, 2010

No. Whether or not you can bring a wrongful death lawsuit depends on your relationship to the victim. Each state has its own laws that outlines the categories of people who can bring a wrongful death lawsuit. In Texas, the law limits the people who can bring a wrongful death lawsuit to the deceased’s surviving spouse, children and parents.

If you have lost a loved one in an accident, contact a Texas wrongful death lawyer to learn more about your legal rights.
