Losing a loved one is one of the toughest life experiences many of us face. When the loss is compounded by the negligent conduct of others, the law allows for the recovery of personal injury damages under the Texas Wrongful Death Act. You may also be entitled to recover damages based on the decedent’s pain and mental anguish, medical expenses, and funeral expenses.
Whether you have lost a spouse, child, or parent, the law may allow you to recover damages you suffer from the loss of the decedent’s earning capacity, advice, counsel, services, care, maintenance, and support. You may also be entitled to recover mental anguish damages and the cost of psychological treatment. Finally, the law recognizes the right to recover loss of companionship and society, and loss of inheritance.
