The loss of a loved one is always painful, and when it is a sudden loss due to an accident, the grief for surviving family members is even greater. We understand it is difficult to think of legal action while you are mourning. If a death is caused by the negligent or intentional misconduct of another, it is considered a wrongful death in Louisiana and there may be a legal claim to be pursued. At Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards LLC, we know the value of your loss is incalculable.

No family wants to find themselves in this circumstance. However, in such a trying time, it is important to have an experienced Louisiana Wrongful Death Attorney at your side to make sure the rights of the deceased are honored, and the surviving loved ones are provided for. A wrongful death claim can provide that security with recoverable damages.

These difficult circumstances demand wrongful death attorneys who are highly skilled in all aspects of law concerning Louisiana Wrongful Death Claims. The survivors may recover damages for the predeath suffering of the deceased and for his or her wrongful death, to include loss of love, affection, society, consortium and other damages. An unexpected death can result in financial or emotional turmoil in the lives of spouses, children or other family members who survive, but you still must support yourself and possibly other dependents.

Of course, monetary damages cannot bring a loved one back, but seeking legal help to recover damages can provide the financial means for a family to continue to live through a difficult and emotional time. When the person who was unjustly killed was the primary breadwinner for the family, a wrongful death claim can ensure a college education for his or her children, as well as medical care and other necessities and comforts of life for a family facing a radically-altered and uncertain future.

Recoverable damages may include:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Funeral and Burial Expenses
  • Loss of Support
  • Loss of Future Earnings
  • Mental Anguish
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Loss of Companionship
  • Loss of Parental Care and Guidance

Whether you are seeking compensation for your own injury, or on behalf of a loved one, an experienced Louisiana Injury Attorney with Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards LLC can provide you with an honest assessment of your case and answer any questions you may have about the often complicated and intimidating insurance claims process.
