CLAIMANT : One that asserts a right or title to an estate.
"Claimant" means a party, including a plaintiff, counterclaimant, cross-claimant, or third-party plaintiff, seeking recovery of damages. In a cause of action in which a party seeks recovery of damages related to injury to another person, damage to the property of another person, death of another person, or other harm to another person, "claimant" includes both that other person and the party seeking recovery of damages.
Claimant has been defined 32 different ways in documents like Fifth District Legal Terminology, Tex. Civil Practice and Remedies Code Â§ 41, 2012 U.S. Model Bilateral Investment Treaty, and 7 more.
