Who Can Pursue a Wrongful Death Claim?

Laws regarding what surviving loved ones or family can file a wrongful death claim can vary in different states. In Texas, the legal spouse, children, and/or parents of the deceased, or a representative recognized by law, can file a wrongful death claim. In general, there is a two-year statute of limitation for filing a claim for any type of negligence—including wrongful death. There are some special exceptions such as when the surviving child filing the claim is a minor or when the existence of negligence was not made known or discovered within the two-year period after the date of death.
