In serious auto accidents, injuries can range anywhere from soft
tissue to severe brain damage. When serious injuries are suffered,
it is important to contact an experienced car wreck lawyer immediately. The sooner the investigation begins, the easier it is
to preserve vital evidence. My law firm has substantial experience investigating auto accidents.
My experience has shown that those injured in a car wreck have a lot of questions about what happens next. I help clients by guiding them to their next steps and walking them through the process including the initial investigation of the accident and obtaining any medical treatment needed.
Under Louisiana law, dependents and certain family members (including parents, spouses, and children) may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Children under 25 years of age may also be entitled to compensation for the loss of parental companionship and guidance,
s well as for mental anguish resulting from the death. Under some circumstances, family members outside the immediate family may be allowed to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
If you have lost a family member in a car accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation for funeral costs, medical bills, pain and suffering, mental anguish, lost inheritance, lost benefits, loss of companionship, lost future wages and other losses and expenses. In certain cases in which a death was caused by extreme negligence or misconduct, the defendant may also be ordered to pay punitive damages.
In Louisiana, plaintiffs have one year from the date of the wrongful death to file a lawsuit, so it is important to consult with an attorney as soon as possible after the tragic event.
