Wrongful death suits are filed when the wrongful conduct of a person or entity results in the death of another person. Like personal injury, this area of tort can involve every area of tort practice, but your first step should be to consult with an experienced wrongful death attorney.
We know about the emotional trauma, the strain on the family and the economic hardship wrongful death causes. The four elements of wrongful death include:
- the conduct of the individual caused the victim’s death;
- the individual was negligent or strictly liable for the victim’s death;
- the victim has surviving family or beneficiaries;
- the victim’s death resulted in financial damages.
If all of these elements are present, the family will have the legal standing necessary to file a wrongful death lawsuit. While a wrongful death lawsuit will not bring back their loved one, this lawsuit can help the family make certain they are financially stable after their loved one’s untimely demise.
Louisiana’s statute of limitations for wrongful death gives one year to file a wrongful death claim in court, usually starting from the date of the deceased person’s death.
