Wrongful Death Recovery For Family And Dependents

Nothing can replace the loss of your loved one. Loss of life due to someone else's negligence or wrongful act is tragic and immensely hurtful. The loss can be unbearable, but you can still recover. Family members and estates of the deceased have rights to recover compensation for monetary harm and physical and emotional losses.

To take just one example, minor children rely on one or both parents for emotional and financial support. They are entitled to recover damages for a parent's wrongful death.

One who suffers a fatal accident need not have died in vain. The right to recover lost income does not die with an individual. The wrongful death attorneys at Schwartz Law Firm LLC in Metairie and Baton Rouge will fight to secure the maximum compensation you are entitled to in a wrongful death claim. We represent victims and families throughout southeast Louisiana.

Establishing Your Losses And The Value Of Your Wrongful Death Claim

One of the most important functions of a lawyer representing the family in a wrongful death case is the calculation of their losses. The primary component is the income lost because of a loved one's death. You can depend on the insurance companies to offer the lowest figure they can. It takes an experienced lawyer to establish the full and fair value of your case properly and present it effectively.

You may be able to recover compensation for:

  • Medical costs
  • Pain and suffering the deceased experienced before death
  • Lost income and future estimated income loss
  • Loss of consortium or companionship
  • Funeral expenses

We will take your case personally, as if it were our own. We fight to hold defendants accountable when they have wrongfully caused a person's death. We do not believe that they should escape liability just because the victim they have injured has died.

People killed in car accidents, construction accidents, shipping accidents or any other act caused by the negligence of another person or company must not be allowed to die in vain.
