Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Texas?
Under Texas law, the deceased person’s surviving spouse, children, and parents are eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit. If these parties do not file a wrongful death claim within three months of the date of death, the personal representative of the deceased person’s estate can file the claim instead. However, all of the surviving family members listed above can specifically request that the wrongful death lawsuit not be filed.
