Wrongful Death Recovery For Families And Dependents
Skilled Representation After A Loved One's Fatal Accident
Nothing can replace the loss of a loved one. Loss of life due to someone else's negligence or wrongful act is tragic and immensely hurtful. The loss can be unbearable.
Family members of the deceased (or their estates) 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.
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 that family's 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 incurred before death
- Pain and suffering the deceased experienced before death
- Lost income and loss of projected earnings
- 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 victims they injured have died. A person killed in a car accident, construction accident, maritime accident — or any other fatality caused by the negligence of another person or company — must not be allowed to die in vain.

The right to recover lost income and other damages does not die with an individual. If a loved one has died as a result of another's negligence, our attorneys will fight to win the maximum compensation you and your family deserve.
