What Is a Wrongful Death?
A wrongful death occurs when a person’s negligence or intentional action causes someone else’s death. There are laws in place that allow surviving family members to pursue legal action through a civil wrongful death lawsuit when another person is responsible for the death. Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 71.002 states that a person is responsible for providing financial compensation to the decedent’s family when they cause the death through their “wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, unskillfulness, or default.” Therefore, if someone else’s negligence caused your loved one’s death, you can pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against them.
