Wrongful Death in Allen Parish

Who can pursue damages?

If another individual is at fault for the death of your loved one through negligence or intentional misconduct, you may be able to seek compensation. In Louisiana, a surviving spouse, child, parent, sibling, or grandparent can pursue damages for the death of their relative, depending on the survival of the others. Parents can pursue compensation, for example, only if the deceased person left no surviving spouse or children. With more than 35 years' experience, Hebert Holmes & Fontenot can help you pursue just compensation.

Damages Available for Wrongful Death Cases

Louisiana does not provide information on the type of damages family members can pursue, but they generally include loss of support, loss of society, grief and anguish of the beneficiaries. Based on your loved one's life expectancy and earnings, you may receive damages for loss of support. In wrongful death cases, the loss of companionship and the emotional pain of losing a loved one are determined by how close you were to your family member. You can also pursue pecuniary damages, medical experiences, and a burial allowance.
