Your Right to Compensation for Your Losses
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
- Loss of love, companionship & 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 Shreveport wrongful death lawyer at our firm can
listen intently to your concerns and investigate the circumstances of
the mishap before filing a claim for your damages.
