Who Can File A Claim?
The laws can vary from State to State, but in the Texas court system, for example, the parents, the spouse and/or the children of the person who was killed are entitled to bring a wrongful death claim. In addition, the estate of the person killed may have a claim known as a survival claim. This is a claim for the personal injury, pain and suffering, emotional distress and mental anguish of the person before they died. A personal representative of an estate is entitled to a commission (typically 5%) of funds recovered on behalf of an estate.
