Is there a limit to the number of individuals who may file a wrongful death lawsuit?

No, there is no limit to the number of people that may file a wrongful death lawsuit. In many wrongful death lawsuits, multiple claimants will often file a case. In wrongful death cases the family will file a suit. However, even if multiple people file a wrongful death lawsuit in regards of a sole person, the plaintiff will be regarded as one claimant.

In cases involving multiple plaintiffs it is important to know that some types of cases will have cap on the amount of damages that can be recovered. Texas, is a state that has a cap on the amount of damages. Thus, if a cap is applicable in a case, this cap will be applied regardless of the number of plaintiffs present.
