The death of a loved brings many changes for a family, including the financial turmoil that often follows an unexpected loss. During the weeks and months following a fatal accident, family members may quickly find themselves overwhelmed by emotional hardships, often worsened by the financial impact of a sudden death. Fortunately, families of those killed by the negligent or reckless behavior of another party do not have to face these unfortunate circumstances alone.
After a fatal accident, loved ones may face medical bills, end of life expenses and, if the deceased was a financial provider, the consequences of the loss of his or her income. Typically, insurance companies do not have the interests of grieving families in mind, and it can be difficult to know where to turn for financial relief. Louisiana laws provide options for those who have lost a loved one to seek recovery of their financial losses through a wrongful death claim.
In addition to out of pocket monetary losses, wrongful death compensation may also cover some of the intangible impacts of a loss. This includes loss of companionship, emotional pain and suffering and other specified damages. For some families, there may be several avenues of compensation available, but it is important to work with a team that understands how to navigate the legal process.
