Who Can Sue For Wrongful Death in Texas?

Texas law makes answering the question of who can sue a little difficult. In our state, the only people who can sue for wrongful death are the deceased’s children, spouse or parents. This means that brothers and sisters, grandparents, friends and unmarried romantic partners have no legal recourse if their loved one dies because of someone else’s negligence. This rule gets more complicated, though, in the case of common law marriages, separations, stepparents, foster parents and adopted children. In most cases, a common law spouse or the separated spouse can bring a wrongful death case. Stepparents and foster parents are not permitted to bring wrongful death suits, though parents of legally adopted children can bring a suit. A child who has been adopted is only permitted to bring a wrongful death suit for his or her adopted parents, not their biological parents.
