The main person who can claim in an injury case in Texas is the injured party. However, there are exceptions - the most obvious of which is in a wrongful death claim where the survivors of the deceased are entitled to make a claim on their behalf (which includes seeking damages for themselves realted to the sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one). Another exception would be in a truck accident case where a child has been injured - in which case the parents or other legal guardians of the injured child would be expected to make a claim on their behalf.
