Texas Survival Statute Lawsuit Filed By Estate Post Mortem
When a victim is injured in an accident, he or she is usually eligible to sue for personal injury. The victim can seek compensation for his or her medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages from time spent away from work or from a job loss due to the injury. But if the victim of the accident dies before he or she is able to file a lawsuit, the victim’s estate or surviving family members can sue under the Texas survival statute. This statute allows the family to seek compensation for the exact same damages for which the victim was eligible to be compensated. This type of lawsuit is similar to a wrongful death suit, but instead of seeking compensation for the family’s suffering, a survival statute lawsuit seeks compensation for the victim’s suffering.
