Wrongful Death Lawyers Serving New Orleans and All Louisiana

Experienced New Orleans Wrongful Death Attorneys Ready To Help You

“There is no experience quite as stunning as when there is nothing where something has always been.  To try and imagine the absence of something is to imagine the thing itself, not the hole left behind.  Especially when that thing has the first face you probably ever saw, spoke the first words you ever heard, and whose touch has comforted and guided and corrected and made you safe since the beginning of time.” —The Orphaned Adult by Alexander Levy.

Dealing with the unexpected loss of a loved one can be excruciating.  Taking legal action may not be a priority for a grieving family.  However, it is important for family members of a lost loved one to retain a New Orleans wrongful death attorney as soon as possible.  Unfortunately, potential corporate defendants quickly got to law firms to protect their interests following a wrongful death.  These lawyers are charged with interviewing key witnesses and accumulating evidence as soon after the wrongful death as possible.  Much of this work is done even before families have had an opportunity to say goodbye to their loved one with a formal funeral or memorial service.

In addition to the feelings of profound grief and sadness, families often face substantial financial hardships without the support of the deceased family member.  The compensation recovered from a wrongful death lawsuit can help ease this financial burden and put the family back on a more stable path.

Our New Orleans wrongful death lawyers have extensive experience recovering compensation that recognizes the value of your lost loved one and helps relieve the financial burden associated with their loss.  We are proud of the fact that we have some of the highest recorded verdicts in the state of Louisiana for wrongful death cases.
