Following the wrongful death of a loved one, state rules usually govern who can initiate a lawsuit. Survivor spouses, domestic partners, and children of the deceased may seek compensation in Texas. Suit may also be brought by the deceased’s parents or siblings.

To file a wrongful death lawsuit, you must have proof that the cause of death was caused by the negligent or intentional activities of the person or company you’re suing.

Your Denton wrongful death lawyer will take care of gathering police reports, medical records, and other proof on your behalf.


A wrongful death claim in Texas can result in a variety of personal injury damages. While particular award amounts vary depending on the facts of each case, damages are often split between compensating the deceased’s estate for costs related with the death and compensating the deceased’s surviving family members for losses they’ve experienced as a result of the death.

The following are some of the most common losses related with estates:

  • Expenses or medical fees incurred during the deceased’s injury before they died
  • Expenses for the funeral and burial services
  • Income lost, as well as future income that the deceased would have been projected to earn
  • The following categories of damages are frequently recovered by surviving family members:
  • Loss of expected earnings
  • Other household contributions value
  • Loss of inheritance
  • Love companionship, emotional support, and guidance

Your suffering is important to us, and we want to assist you in finding comfort after such a tragic loss.


Insurance companies will do everything they can to settle your claim for the least amount of money feasible, even in such a tragic situation. They don’t want to take the chance of involving an attorney, especially after a terrible accident.

When you’re at your most vulnerable, insurers frequently make a lowball offer in the hopes that you’ll settle as soon as possible without considering the full value of your claim.

Your Denton wrongful death lawyer, on the other hand, will make sure that your voice is heard. We’ll communicate with the insurance provider on your behalf, negotiating and handling all correspondence so you may focus on the grieving process.

We’ll also look into the circumstances surrounding your loved one’s death. Gathering evidence and witness testimony as soon as possible after a wrongful death is most beneficial.

We often cope by thinking about minutes and hours after a loved one dies unexpectedly. Unfortunately, the law requires that a wrongful death claim be brought within two years of the loss of a loved one. Hiring a lawyer will ensure that you don’t lose out on your chance to get the compensation you deserve.


The anguish of losing a loved one is unbearable, and the financial losses that follow can be crippling. While filing a wrongful death lawsuit may not alleviate the emotional suffering, it may relieve your worry and allow you to focus on grieving.

Very efficient staff. I am VERY pleased with this firm. Gina W.
Very professional job handling my accident claim. I had some ER bills, and some visits to my ortho after (and various other bills that kept coming in). I was afraid I was going to get stuck owing money, but Doug Goyen took care of the case and had everything paid, including compensating me for the injury. Great lawyer IMO. I felt like my case was taken care of very well. Thx!! Bernard M.
Doug is a great attorney. He took care of my auto accident claim promptly, and answered any questions I had. I also had one of my hospital bills go into collections for non-payment. I was able to contact Doug a year after the accident, and received a copy of the check the hospital claimed they didn’t receive. I highly recommend this guy. David J.
The Law Office of Doug Goyen helped me recovery every bit I was owed on my claim. Very happy I used them. They knew what they were doing, and kept me informed. I felt taken care of the whole way. You wont go wrong using them. Arthur H.
Mr. Goyen helped me take on my own insurance company, the great and mighty Allstate. My prior firm basically dumped me, with a permanent injury because the case didn’t meet their financial guidelines for a settlement. I was a bicycle rider hit by a car driver at an intersection, and Allstate was the company on BOTH SIDES OF THE CLAIM. My own insurance company tried to throw me under the bus to limit their payout! Without Mr. Goyen’s help, I would have been left with NOTHING! I had thousands of dollars in unpaid medical bills, unable to receive treatment to correct the issue. He was unafraid and helped me get the best settlement I could … I am tremendously thankful! Pamala M.
