The wrongful death of a loved one can be one of the most devastating experiences a family can endure. It is even more difficult to cope when the death occurred due to an accident that should not have happened. At Vamvoras Antoon Attorneys at Law in Lake Charles, we hold negligent people and companies responsible for wrongful deaths that arise from negligence. Unexpected deaths can also have a tremendous financial impact on families. During this difficult time, let us fight for maximum compensation for you and your family while you take the time you need to grieve and remember your loved one.
While no amount of money could ever make up for the death of your loved one, financial compensation is the only remedy available for wrongful death cases. Therefore, our attorneys will do everything we can to build the most aggressive case possible and obtain the full amount of compensation available for your loss under the law. In addition, holding the responsible party accountable may bring attention to a problem and prevent a similar accident from happening in the future.
Wrongful Death Cases in Louisiana
In Louisiana, the following individuals may make wrongful death claims:
- Surviving spouses
- Surviving parents
- Children of the deceased
- Surviving siblings of the deceased if no parents or children survive
- Surviving grandparents of the deceased if no parents, children or siblings survive
A strong wrongful death claim often requires a comprehensive investigation of the accident or circumstances that led to the victim’s death. Our lawyers may work with accident reconstruction experts, or other expert witnesses, to prove liability. We will also work closely with you to understand the full extent of your loss and the impact on your life, financially and emotionally, both now and in the future. It is important to act quickly as Louisiana law only gives plaintiffs one year from the date of death to initiate a wrongful death claim.
