Can You Bring A Wrongful Death Claim?

In Texas, only certain types of family relationships qualify for potential wrongful death claims. Brothers and sisters aren't included, nor are aunts, uncles, or godparents.

If, however, you lost a child, parent, or spouse to a death caused by another person’s negligence, you may be able to obtain compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit. Additionally, in some circumstances, the executor of the person who died may be able to bring a claim, depending on whether the surviving family members have done so.

What We Can Do for You

Wrongful death cases have many peculiarities. For example, if the death was caused by a willful act or gross negligence, punitive damages (called "exemplary" damages in Texas statutes) may be available.

Our wrongful death attorneys in San Antonio have the skills and resources to build strong claims in all types of wrongful death cases. We know how to investigate fatal accidents and other incidents that resulted in untimely death—and then take the necessary steps to identify responsible parties and hold them accountable. Our proven track record makes insurance companies treat us with respect and helps us negotiate maximum compensation for our clients.

We encourage you to contact our office today by phone at (210) 774-6445 or by completing a brief online form. Our lawyers serve clients in Bexar County and throughout Texas.
