Guiding The Survivors Of Wrongful Death Accidents In Texas

Last updated on December 12, 2022

Losing someone you love in an accident is an incomparable tragedy. In the aftermath, you might feel angry, confused and lost. Attorney Matt Breeland has experience working with the surviving loved ones of wrongful death victims throughout Texas. When you need guidance from someone you can trust, you can turn to him.

At his law office, Breeland Injury Law, PLLC, he works to recover maximum compensation for the surviving relatives of an injury victim. With that said, he understands that there is no amount of money high enough to bring back the person you lost. Many of his clients rely on him to hold the perpetrator accountable for the harm their inexcusable carelessness has caused.

Wrongful Death Claims: What To Know

Texas has strict laws regarding wrongful death claims. You may have an actionable claim if you can demonstrate that another person or party’s carelessness contributed to a severe injury that caused someone’s death and that the deceased person would have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit if they had survived. The only people who can pursue a wrongful death claim in our state include:

  • The surviving spouse
  • The surviving children
  • The surviving parents
  • A personal representative of the decedent’s estate

In Texas, you have only two years from the date of the incident to file your wrongful death claim. If you miss this statute of limitations, you lose your right to recover compensation. Sounds confusing? Do not worry. Matt can shoulder the difficult legal burdens so you can focus on mourning your loved one and tending to your family.
