How Do Texas Courts Measure Damages From Wrongful Deaths?
After losing a loved one due to someone else’s carelessness, discussing your financial concerns may be necessary. No amount of money is worth their life, but you and your family are likely to face unexpected expenses following the tragedy. A wrongful death claim could help you through the economic impact of your loss.

What Does A Court Consider?
No amount of compensation can bring back your loved one or take away your grief. Compensation can ease your financial burden so you can focus on your family and mourning your loved one.
Texas courts consult economic experts to base awards on a variety of losses and costs, including:
- Funeral expenses and end-of-life medical bills
- Decreased household income, calculated according to the deceased’s most recent and future earning capacity
- Loss of companionship, love and support, for which family members may incur extra bills or suffer total sentimental loss
- Emotional suffering and the costs of therapy
The other party will likely hire their own lawyer to argue against your claim. It is essential to work with an experienced trial lawyer with a drive to win your case and achieve a record of success.
How Much Is Your Claim Worth?
For many people with a wrongful death claim, it is important to estimate the potential outcome of their case.
