What are the Most Common Causes of Wrongful Death in Texas?

Since 2003, we have dedicated our practice to producing real results for real people whose lives have been impacted by negligence, including those who have tragically lost their loved ones in preventable accidents.  

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

Texas wrongful death claims are inherently complex, which is why partnering with a skilled and experienced San Antonio personal injury lawyer is paramount to your family’s success — inside and outside the courtroom.

Our law firm founder, Steve Hollingworth, has been the lead attorney in over 50 jury trials as lead counsel in over a dozen different Texas counties. Should your case go to trial, we will be ready to aggressively pursue the positive outcome you deserve in front of a judge and/or jury.

The insurance company will value a case more if they know the firm is willing to go to trial. At the Hollingworth Law Firm, we are more than willing — we remain trial-ready.

Which Family Members are Eligible to File Wrongful Death Claims in Texas?

Texas wrongful death law specifies which family members are eligible to file a claim when they have lost their loved ones to negligence.

Eligible family members include the deceased person’s:

  • Surviving Spouse
  • Children
  • Parents

If a surviving eligible party does not file a Texas wrongful death claim within three months of the individual’s death, a personal representative or administrator of the deceased person’s estate may file the claim instead.

The exception to the latter’s eligibility is when surviving family members specifically request that the wrongful death lawsuit not be filed.

What are My Financial Recovery Options During a Wrongful Death Claim in San Antonio?

At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, we outline each of our client’s unique recovery needs based on the evidence available for each case.  

Common financial recovery options in San Antonio wrongful death claims may include, but are not limited to:

  • Medical Expenses Incurred After the Accident and Before Death
  • Funeral and Burial Costs
  • Lost Earning Capacity
  • Lost Inheritance
  • Lost Love, Companionship, Comfort, and Society
  • Lost Support, Advice, Care, Maintenance, Services, and Counsel
  • Mental Pain and Anguish Experienced by the Surviving Family

In Texas, the statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death claim is two years from the date of the person’s death.
