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.
