Wrongful Death

The profound sorrow of losing a loved one to negligence can never be fully articulated. Such tragedies often strike without warning, leaving families in a state of shock and irrevocable change. At Aversano & Gold, we dedicate ourselves to delivering solace through justice, offering compassionate, thorough legal representation to make accountable those responsible and to secure rightful compensation for families enduring this immense loss.

Texas law empowers parents, children—natural or adopted—and spouses to claim damages reflecting their emotional and economic suffering due to a loved one's wrongful death. Additionally, the decedent's estate may seek damages for any conscious pain and suffering endured prior to passing.

Donna Aversano and Paul Gold bring extensive experience in guiding families through the recovery process for wrongful death. They have achieved significant recoveries in cases stemming from medical malpractice, notably anesthesia-related injuries, defective products including medical devices and heavy equipment, as well as motor vehicle collisions, oilfield, chemical plant, and construction site accidents leading to fatal outcomes such as electrocution, suffocation, and burns. Notably, Paul played a pivotal role in securing one of Texas's largest individual death settlements (exceeding $50,000,000.00) following the 1989 Phillips Petroleum Plant explosion. Continuously at the legal forefront, his early authorship and presentation on Wrongful Death and Survival Actions for the State Bar of Texas Advanced Personal Injury Course in 1983, echoes his and the firm's commitment to staying abreast of legal advancements in this critical field.

  • Medical malpractice leading to death

  • Fatal truck wrecks and car collisions

  • Construction site and oil field fatalities
