Historically in Texas, the spouses, parents and children of someone who was killed in an accident could not sue for the damages that they suffered because of their loved one’s death. The Wrongful Death Act changed that by creating a new cause of action that lets these persons bring suit in the event they have actual damages from the death of their spouse, child or parent.

A wrongful death claim lets family members and the deceased’s estate recover compensation after someone causes the death of their spouse, parent or child.
