How Long Do You Have To File A Wrongful Death Claim In Texas?

Saturday, May 6th, 2023

Wrongful death claims in Texas are subject to a two-year statute of limitations, meaning that eligible parties generally have until the second anniversary of their loved one’s death to file a lawsuit in civil court. If this filing deadline expires, you will lose your ability to pursue compensation.

The statute of limitations period for wrongful death may only be extended under limited clearly-defined circumstances. Since adhering to this deadline can have such a profound effect on your case, it is important you speak to an experienced Amarillo wrongful death attorney.
