Can I Seek Compensation through a Survival Claim and a Wrongful Death Claim?

Family members may seek to collect compensation via both a survival action and wrongful death claim in the state of Texas, or may only be able to use one or the other, depending on the circumstances. On proper grounds a family can file both actions if the fatality was caused by a third party, the deceased incurred losses due to injury, and the surviving family members were also subject to damages.
