Proven Expertise in Wrongful Death Claims

While we know we can never bring your loved one back, we can fight on your behalf for justice and closure. With our proven experience in Louisiana wrongful death law, you can count on us to honor your loved one by holding the responsible parties accountable.

What Constitutes Wrongful Death in Louisiana

Under Louisiana law, a wrongful death occurs when someone dies due to the misconduct or negligence of another party. This can arise from car accidents, defective products, workplace accidents, nursing home incidents, medical malpractice, premises liability, and other similar circumstances.

Strong Evidence is Necessary to Prove Liability

Our Louisiana attorneys have strong experience with wrongful death cases. We know how to build a compelling case through sourcing police records, medical reports, witness statements, expert testimony, and other investigative methods.

The at-fault parties may often fight back to dispute or downplay allegations, which makes it important that you have a powerful litigator on your side. With our proven record and intimate understanding of Louisiana’s wrongful death laws, we can pursue justice on your behalf.

Financial Compensation Matters in Wrongful Death Cases

While money can never make up for the terrible loss of a loved one, obtaining fair financial compensation is an integral part of justice in wrongful death cases. Under Louisiana law, surviving family members may be eligible to recover damages that recognize both the economic and emotional toll of their loved one’s death.

Steps to Take After a Loved One’s Wrongful Death

The aftermath of a wrongful death can be disorienting and devastating. We encourage you to focus first on caring for yourself and your family. Once you have coped with the initial grief and shock, there are some necessary legal steps to take soon to preserve your rights:

Gather Evidence Surrounding the Death

If possible, take photos of accident scenes, assemble police reports, and collect related medical records, invoices, pay stubs, and other documentation. Do not discard or alter anything.

Do Not Delay

Do not delay in contacting our team. These cases may involve strict statutes of limitations that, if missed, can hurt your claim.

Document Your Damages

Track all funeral costs, counseling bills, loss of financial support, and other damages you may claim. Ongoing records help us value the claim. The weeks and months following a wrongful death are enormously difficult, but our compassionate legal team can handle these myriad details and filings while you grieve and get your bearings.

How It Works

Step 1: The Consultation

We need to understand how the death happened and the impact it has had on your life. Once we have that information, we can begin the claim.

Step 2: We Investigate

We may get started with a meticulous investigation to build a robust case. Once we have all the evidence, we can negotiate to reach a fair settlement.

Step 3: The Best Result

If negotiations fail, we may file a lawsuit and take your case to trial. Our honed courtroom skills offer you the opportunity for an excellent outcome.

Step 4: You Rebuild Your Life

Our goal is that with you as our client, you will walk away with your rightful compensation and move closer to closure.
