Wrongful Death in New Orleans, Louisiana

A wrongful death lawsuit attempts to provide financial compensation to the dependents of a person killed as a result of someone else’s misconduct or negligence. As an example, wrongful death claims can take place because of an automobile accident, medical malpractice, workplace accidents or the use of a defective product.

According to Louisiana state law, dependents and immediate family members, such as parents, spouses and children may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit. The explosion of the Deepwater Horizon and resulting catastrophic fire and oil spill is a perfect example of wrongful deaths in the workplace.

If you have lost a loved one due to someone else’s actions or negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation for funeral and burial expenses, medical bills, pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of wages, loss of companionship and other losses caused by the tragic death of your loved one.
