Wrongful death laws were established to ensure compensation for families of wrongful death victims as well as provide an incentive for others to act more carefully and safely with the health and welfare of others. Many times, wrongful death will go undiscovered without a thorough and comprehensive investigation. For this reason, families that suspect their loved one’s death was the result of negligence needs to contact a wrongful death attorney for assistance. These attorneys will be able to investigate the victim’s death and determine if the four elements of wrongful death are present.

The four elements of wrongful death include:

  • the conduct of the individual caused the victim’s death;
  • the individual was negligent or strictly liable for the victim’s death;
  • the victim has surviving family or beneficiaries;
  • the victim’s death resulted in financial damages.

If all of these elements are present, the family will have the legal standing necessary to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

The circumstances surrounding any accident claim can oftentimes be complex, which leads to great difficulty determining who is liable for resulting damages. 

Losing a loved can be a devastating and traumatic experience, especially if the cause of death could have been prevented. Our Louisiana wrongful death attorneys at the Law Offices of L.

Louisiana’s statute of limitations for wrongful death gives one year to file a wrongful death claim in court, usually starting from the date of the deceased person’s death.
