Are you contemplating a wrongful death claim after a loss?

Losing a loved one is difficult enough. When that loss is unexpected, it can be even more of a challenge both emotionally and financially. If you believe that a member of your immediate family died due to the negligence of another, Louisiana law provides for the right to file a wrongful death claim that could provide some emotional closure and restitution for any financial losses.

As difficult as it might be to relive the tragedy that took your loved one from you, discussing the circumstances with a Louisiana attorney might be beneficial. If the facts indicate that another party is responsible for your loss, a civil action could be filed. When many people think of wrongful death claims, they think about a car accident; however, that is not the only situation in which negligence can occur. Medical mistakes, workplace accidents and premises or product liability claims could also lead to a wrongful death lawsuit.

When contemplating filing such a claim, it is important to find an attorney who has the knowledge to handle the case, but it is also important that he or she is compassionate toward you and passionate about your case. You need to feel that you matter and that someone is doing everything reasonably possible to advocate on your behalf. These cases are often about much more than financial restitution -- they are also about providing you with some closure and sense of justice regarding your loss.

You should be prepared for your wrongful death claim to end up in a courtroom while striving to get it settled without you being put through a trial. If you are offered a settlement, it can be tempting to take it in order to put the matter to rest, but that offer might not be in your best interest. You need to be confident that your attorney has your best interests in mind and will provide you with the advice and guidance that will provide you the best possible outcome.
