Receiving Compensation for Your Loss
The sudden loss of a loved one through a preventable accident is an injustice. The criminal court system may not be effective in obtaining a fair outcome. Most fatal accidents take a financial toll on the surviving family if only in medical and final costs. The survivors may suffer other losses as well such as loss of income if the deceased was a source of income to the family and loss of love, companionship and other services. State law recognizes your right to be compensated by the person or entity responsible when you have lost a loved one because another's careless actions took a life. A wrongful death lawyer at our firm will listen intently to your concerns and investigate the circumstances of the mishap before filing a claim for your damages.
Death caused by the negligence of another is called a wrongful death. The family or representative of the decedent's estate may bring suit for wrongful death and recover damages from those responsible. Most cases are settled out of court, but as members of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, our legal team develops the case to go to trial and is ready to go toe-to-toe with the defendant's attorneys if that is what it takes to see justice done. Call our office to speak with a Shreveport personal injury lawyer who is passionate about obtaining a successful outcome. We look forward to hearing from you.
