Survival Actions and Wrongful Death Actions
In Louisiana, there are two legal actions that family members may have a right to pursue after a wrongful death:
- A survival action, which seeks to recover compensation the deceased person would have been entitled to recover if he or she had survived. This includes compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages incurred prior to death.
- A wrongful death action, which seeks to recover compensation for family members. This includes compensation such as lost financial support, loss of consortium and loss of parental guidance.
We offer a free consultation to determine who in your family has a right to file survival and wrongful death actions.
No fees unless we win your case. We represent family members on a contingency fee basis. This means that you will not owe any legal fees unless we obtain compensation for you.
