What Damages Can I Recover for Wrongful Death?
Following the tragic and untimely death of a loved one, you and other close surviving family members may be entitled to compensation. The amount of compensation is based on the damages you and your family have suffered as a result of your loved one’s wrongful death.
Damages can be assessed for:
- Lost wages that the deceased would have made had they not passed away
- Benefits that the diseased would have been awarded
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of consortium
- Emotional pain and suffering
- Funeral expenses
- Burial expenses
The exact damages you will be eligible for and the amount will vary case by case. To receive a more accurate assessment of the damages you and your loved ones may be entitled to, meet with a wrongful death lawyer.
Why File a Wrongful Death Claim?
Wrongful death claims are not an attempt to put a price tag on life—this is an impossible and insensitive task. Yet, if your loved one was killed in an accident that should have been preventable, such as a car accident or an act of medical malpractice, you and your family are likely reeling from the suddenness of the loss. Wrongful death claims help ensure that the parties liable for your loved one’s death are held responsible for what they did. They can also help you move on financially, as your loss may result in unexpected burial and funeral expenses, or the sudden halt of your family’s primary source of income.
How The Burrell Firm Can Help
Unfortunately, Louisiana imposes strict time limits on filing wrongful death claims. If you do not file a lawsuit within one year from the date of your loved one’s passing, you will be prevented from collecting compensation.
For this reason, it is imperative you do not delay in consulting with one of our New Orleans wrongful death lawyers. We have the experience, skills, and knowledge required to handle wrongful death claims from negotiation to litigation and to calculate the monetary damages you rightfully deserve. The Burrell Firm, LLC is proud to have been able to help families recover the maximum settlement in wrongful death lawsuits and we are ready to help you as well.
