Wrongful Death Attorney in New Orleans, LA

Aggressively Fights For Justice in Wrongful Death Matters

Losing a loved one is devastating. When that loss could have been avoided, it becomes especially difficult. The tragedy of losing someone we rely on because of another’s negligence not only denies us the closure that we need to move forward, it can leave the survivors in financial grief as well. You may have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit to receive the justice and compensation that you need during this difficult time.

What Is a Wrongful Death Claim?

When a person is killed because of the negligence or wrongdoing of another person or entity, it is known as a “wrongful death.” If you are a beneficiary of, or dependent on, the person whose death could have been avoided, you may be entitled to financial compensation. It is a complex area of the law, but a necessary one – not only to help survivors of such a tragedy, but to punish those who are liable with the hope that others won’t suffer the same fate.

Compensation allowed in a wrongful death case is dependent on a number of factors including: the amount of income earned by the deceased, the savings of the deceased, expenses such as medical and burial costs, and loss of companionship.

The grieving process is difficult enough without the added burden of financial hardship. At the Law Office of David D. Kervin, Jr. LLC, we are committed to helping those who have been left behind, and to see that justice is served to the wrongdoers.

A wrongful death can occur in a number of ways. Medical malpractice such as surgical errors or the failure to properly diagnose can be fatal. Improperly administered anesthesia during surgery can cause death. A fatal car accident, motorcycle crash or other vehicle accident can result in wrongful death. Dangerous or defective products or serious workplace injuries can also end in a tragic loss for you and your family. Regardless of the cause, a premature death is unacceptable.

It may not seem important during the grieving process to attend to legal matters, we understand. But there are time limitations for filing a wrongful death suit and the sooner that you retain the help of a knowledgeable wrongful death attorney, the sooner we can begin gathering evidence and building a case against those who are liable.
