Who is allowed to file a wrongful death claim in Texas?
When it comes to filing a wrongful death claim, only certain individuals are allowed to take legal action against the negligent party. The state of Texas allows surviving spouses, children, parents, or adult children to file a wrongful death claim. That being said, the surviving siblings of a brother or sister are not allowed to file such claims. Those who are permitted to do so can file their claim either individually or as a group. Regardless of who is filing, anyone who wishes to do so is required to submit the claim within two years of the date the neglect occurred, not the date of death. This can be easily overlooked, so it is important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
