We Will Ensure the Right Family Members Take Legal Action

The sudden and unexpected loss of a family member is trying and emotional for their entire circle of loved ones. According to Texas law, though, only specific family members are legally permitted to file a wrongful death action.

These include the decedent’s:

  • Spouse
  • Parents
  • Children

Qualifying family members can change based on many factors related to your family’s dynamics. Our wrongful death lawyers will ensure your family understands these dynamics and upholds your legal rights.

We Will File Your Case in Accordance with the State’s Statutory Deadline

The sooner our law firm begins preparing your case, the more time we have to investigate, interview witnesses, and consult with field experts. 

Being involved sooner rather than later also means we can file your case in compliance with the state’s statute of limitations. According to Texas law, you generally have two years from the date of your loved one’s passing to file a wrongful death lawsuit. 

The loss of your loved one can leave your family reeling and unable to immediately take on the challenges of the legal system. While you take care of each other, we can take care of your wrongful death case.
