Texas has a set of statutes for wrongful death suits. Texas law permits a deceased person’s survivors to file a lawsuit under the conditions that the person died as a result of someone else’s act, whether intentional or accidental. In Texas, wrongful death occurs when an injury causes a person’s death, someone’s acts cause a failure of a fetus to be born alive, an injury that leads to death is caused by another person’s wrongful act (or neglect, carelessness, or unskillfulness), and the injured person would have been entitled to a serious injury lawsuit if he or she had survived. Additionally, a serious injury is considered one that causes death, disfigurement, a fracture, the loss of a fetus, permanent loss of or limitation of a limb, body organ, or system, or a non-permanent injury that prevents you from performing your usual daily activities for more than 90 days in the 180 following your accident.
