Who Can File a Garland Wrongful Death Case
The wrongful death code outlines who can take action in this type of case. First, you must have lost someone because of someone else’s negligence. If your family member could have pursued an injury claim had they not passed away, you likely qualify.
We will need to prove:
- The at-fault party had to take specific action to prevent harm to others.
- They failed to take this action.
- Their failure caused your loved one’s injuries and death.
- You endured emotional and financial losses because of this incident.
In addition, the law limits who can file a wrongful death case in Texas based on their relationship with the deceased. Those who are eligible may include:
- A surviving spouse
- Adult or minor children
- Surviving parents
When we review the details of your case during your free initial consultation, we can determine if you qualify to represent the family of the deceased in a wrongful death case. Most immediate family members will be able to recover compensation in a successful case.
