A wrongful death claim seeks compensation when “a person dies due to the fault of another,” according to Louisiana Civil Code Section 2512.2. The death may be caused by the fault of another human being, or it may be the result of wrongdoing by an entity like a corporation. A wrongful death may be caused by an accident or a purposeful action. The purposeful action may be negligent, reckless, or an intentional act. 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.
