Texas Survival Claims

When a personal injury victim dies before their lawsuit was settled, the claims of the injured party can survive their death. For example, if a person is harmed in a car crash but does not pass away until months after the accident, the person’s estate can uphold their claim for damages such as pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages and more.

In Texas, special law enables estate, heirs, or legal representatives to bring a survival action and recover damages for the deceased’s estate. The Texas Survival Statute states that a personal injury claim “does not abate because of the death of the injured person or because of the death of a person liable for the injury.” This means the claim may still be prosecuted as if both parties were alive.

If you lost a loved one due to another party’s negligence, our attorneys may be able to leverage the Texas Survival Action on behalf of their estate.

Types of Survival Claims Compensation

Under the Texas Survival Statute, any compensation your loved one could have received had he or she lived can still be recovered with a survival claim. Some examples of common types of compensation are:

  • Medical expenses incurred before death
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Losses incurred by the estate
