Commonly Asked Questions about Wrongful Death Claims

Commonly Asked Questions about Wrongful Death Claims

Our personal injury attorneys at Zinda Law Group receive lots of wrongful death phone calls.

Questions that individuals have in these wrongful death cases usually include:

Who has a wrongful death beneficiary claim?

In Texas, the answer to that is the deceased’s spouse, the deceased’s children and the deceased’s parents, it does not include the deceased’s siblings.

Does every wrongful death beneficiary have to hire the same attorney?

The answer to that is no, but I would encourage you to use caution in hiring different attorneys for every beneficiary because not only is it going to cost more, it's going to take longer and it maybe to the detriment of your case.

Does every single beneficiary have a separate claim within the insurance policy that's available?

And the answer to that is no, there's one wrongful death beneficiary claim and it needs to be split between all the wrongful death beneficiaries. Now, there is no mandatory percentage depending on your relationship with the deceased that one beneficiary would get. It's based on a lot of different factors and for discussion of those factors and an analysis, please feel free to give the personal injury attorneys at Zinda Law Group a phone call.
