Quién es Elegible Demandar?
A "wrongful death" claim is allowed when a person is killed due to the negligence of another individual, company or entity. Who is eligible to file a wrongful death suit? An action for wrongful death in Texas belongs to the spouse, children, or parents of the deceased. In most other states, such persons will include the decedent's immediate family members, such as surviving spouses and children, and sometimes parents or siblings.
Additionally, other family members - such as stepparents, grandparents, and dependents, may also be permitted to file suit in some states. If the victim is a minor, the state may require only a parent or an adult guardian to bring a lawsuit. Some states allow a domestic partner to bring a wrongful death on behalf of a deceased victim.
