Getting The Compensation To Recover Financially After Losing A Loved One

The sudden and tragic loss of a loved one in an accident is devastating and leaves the family in deep mourning, wondering why and how the accident happened. When a person dies as the result of an act of negligence, the law allows the family to seek damages from the liable party or parties through a wrongful death claim or lawsuit filed in civil court.

A wrongful death case is essentially a personal injury case, but the injured person is no longer here to file the lawsuit and certain close family members have the right to do so. The types of compensation pursued include various economic and non-economic damages:

wrongful-death-1 Any medical bills associated with treatment
prior to death
wrongful-death-2 Funeral and burial costs
wrongful-death-3 Estimated loss of income and benefits
that would have been earned had the person lived
wrongful-death-4

The pain and suffering experienced by the person
in their final moments prior to death

wrongful-death-5 The loss of care, companionship, love, guidance,
and emotional support as a result of the death

Automobile Accidents And Wrongful Death Claims

In cases of wrongful death due to a traffic accident, there are various types of evidence that should be preserved, as well as witnesses to the accident to interview before time passes and memories fade. The statute of limitations allows for a limited time of only one year to file a wrongful death claim. It is imperative that the process begin as early as possible after the tragic loss.

Many of the deaths in Louisiana involve car or vehicle accidents. Fatal vehicle accidents in Louisiana recorded in 2014 included:

wrongful-death-6 Passenger Cars (291 fatalities)
wrongful-death-7 Light Truck/Pick Up (197 fatalities)
wrongful-death-8 Vans (21 fatalities)
wrongful-death-9 Car/Truck/Vans with Trailer (21 fatalities)
wrongful-death-10 Motorcycles (69 fatalities)
wrongful-death-11 and Trucks (54 fatalities)

At our firm, we assist the close family to seek compensation in a case in which the other driver acted negligently. Most fatal vehicle accidents are the result of negligent driving conduct, including drunk driving, speeding, and distracted driving. Talk to us at about your case. We can come to you.


Cases Of Mesothelioma And Wrongful Death

A person who has developed mesothelioma as a result of asbestos exposure will die of the disease. In most cases, the person was exposed to asbestos at some point in his or her work history. Many industries in Louisiana used asbestos, including oil refineries, shipbuilding facilities, and construction trades.

Our firm can assist families to file a wrongful death claim in these and other cases of toxic exposure. We have recovered millions of dollars for clients injured by chemical exposure.

Our Areas of Practice

Louisiana injured accident victims have rights, and the attorneys of Neblett, Beard, and Arsenault want to help fight for them. Our attorneys understand that serious accident injuries can have a long-lasting impact on your life, and we will work hard to help you obtain compensation for your medical costs, property damage, lost time at work, and pain and suffering.
Personal injury cases can arise from a wide variety of accidents and other situations. Car accidents, truck accidents, slip and falls, exposure to toxic substances, and more are all avoidable circumstances that can lead to the unnecessary injury to a victim. Often, victims suffer serious injuries that leave them facing a difficult recovery or even a permanent disability. When that happens, victims should be able to focus on their health and recovery, not the complex and often frustrating details of a legal case.
When you are injured or become ill because of a dangerous drug, defective medical device, or a toxic consumer product, you are very likely not the only person to suffer. When a product harms a large number of people, a court may determine that the case can be filed as a mass tort action, which saves time, effort, and money for each individual plaintiff. Our mass tort attorneys are prepared to take on major manufacturers to get you the compensation you deserve.
