What damages are available for a drowning accident or death?


One of the questions that people ask when it comes to drowning death cases is, “What type of compensation is available to my family?” A drowning case is also considered, of course, a wrongful death case. In Texas, we have a wrongful death statute that the drowning case would be filed under. The person that drowned has their own claim; specifically, their estate has their own claim, if that person suffered before they died. For example, if a person knows that they’re about to drown or that they’re drowning, they are entitled to be compensated for that; the estate will collect those funds, and then those funds will be distributed depending on the heirs and whoever might be entitled to recover from the estate.

In addition to that, certain family members, such as parents, the spouse, or children, have their own claims for loss of companionship, loss of love, and loss of affection that that person provided to them when they were alive. There are also other damages that can be collected, such as lost income that that person might have earned for their family throughout their lifetime. There are other damages that you can also recover, many of which are unique to particular circumstances.
