Any biological children of a deceased parent can bring a claim under the Texas Wrongful Death Act. An adopted child, who has been formally and legally adopted, can bring a wrongful death claim for the death of his or her adoptive parent, but not for his or her biological parent.

Adult children may sue for the wrongful death of a parent.
