Corpus Christi Wrongful Death Lawyer

The Gould Law Firm represents those who have been injured by negligent actions

A wrongful death is a death that results from the reckless actions or negligence of a third party. The third party may be another person, company, organization or even a defective product. For example, if a person was involved in an auto accident that was caused by another driver’s reckless actions and the person died, it would be considered a wrongful death.

Wrongful Death Claims in Texas

When families have lost their loved ones due to wrongful death, they will not only suffer from sorrow, but also from lost income and financial instability. This is why families are allowed to file wrongful death claims in Texas.

A wrongful death claim is a type of lawsuit or tort that is filed to recover compensation from the negligent party that caused the deceased person’s death. In order to file a wrongful death lawsuit, two crucial elements must be met. First, the family and their lawyer must be able to prove that the death was in fact wrongful and caused by third party negligence. Second, the family and their lawyer must be able to prove that the death led to the family’s loss of companionship, loss of earned income and/or loss of household assistance.

Families that file wrongful death claims and who are successful can collect compensation for things like: the deceased’s medical expenses, the deceased’s funeral and burial costs, lost income, loss of companionship and pain and suffering. These claims are usually filed by spouses, children, parents and in some cases, siblings. It is advised that they work with a skilled Corpus Christi wrongful death attorney, like the attorney at The Gould Law Firm.

Recent Testimonials


    “My family needed an attorney ASAP and Mr. Gould was the only attorney that responded to my call immediately and I called at 7 o'clock at night. I called other attorneys but none ever returned my call. I needed help regarding a CPS matter and they even went as far as helping me with a legal matter that was going on at the same time. Mr. Gould and his staff kept in contact every day and even after court. Mr. Gould really fought for me and my families rights and they won my case. I've never seen an attorney in action like them. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Not once did they judge me for my past which many people do so do be afraid to contact them because they will get the job done and the results are great!!!!”

From my first visit down to my very last, the office staff and the attorney was friendly and very personable while remaining professional & ethical. They answered all my question and never once led me down the wrong path, he & his office were always very accommodating and welcoming to any & all my questions. I would definitely recommend them - - my case was a civil case (employment contract). They are wonderful people and a pleasure to work with!!! Thank you so much!”

    “It has been 3 years since The Gould Law firm reached an acquittal for my husband and every chance we get, we highly recommend their services. Mr. Gould and his team, literally saved my husband from spending the rest of his life behind bars for an allegation that was not true. While our legal system indicates we are innocent until proven guilty, the jury of public opinion differs from that statement when accusations of indecency with a child are thrown at you or the one's you love. Mr. Gould was simply magnificent when it came to defending my husband. His staff, helped prepare us for trial and although we knew the truth, your heart can't help but skip a beat when on the witness stand.... thankfully we knew how to look a the jury and answer truthfully. We are forever, thankful!!!”

I would highly recommend the Mr. Gould and his staff for all your legal needs!!!”
