Common Causes of Wrongful Death

Wrongful deaths can transpire in a variety of circumstances, and each case is unique. Common instances of situations that can lead to wrongful death claims in Texas can include:

  • Car Accidents: Negligent driving, drunk driving, distracted driving, and other types of reckless behavior can result in fatal accidents.
  • Medical Malpractice: Errors made by medical professionals, hospitals, or healthcare facilities that result in a patient's death.
  • Workplace Accidents: Fatal accidents that occur as a result of unsafe working conditions, lack of proper training, or equipment failures.
  • Product Liability: Defective or dangerous products that can cause fatal injuries due to design flaws, manufacturing defects, or inadequate warnings.

What is the Statute of Limitations for a Wrongful Death Claim in Texas?

Texas has a statute of limitations that specifies the time limit within which wrongful death claims have to be filed. This time frame is crucial, as failing to file a claim within the prescribed period may result in the forfeiture of your right to seek compensation. The statute of limitations for wrongful death claims in Texas is generally two years from the date of the deceased person's death. However, there are certain exceptions and circumstances that can impact this timeline.

It's important to act promptly if you believe you have a valid wrongful death claim. Our Austin wrongful death attorney can help you navigate the legal intricacies, gather evidence, and build a strong case within the given time frame.
