Wrongful death is the legal term that is used to describe an event where someone dies due to the negligence, recklessness, or wrongful actions or inactions of another human being or product. Sadly and tragically, preventable deaths occur all the time because of the negligence or carelessness of others. The families and loved ones left behind typically suffer enormous financial and emotional loss. Under Texas law, the surviving family members of wrongful death victims have a right to seek justice on behalf of their lost loved one.
