A Longstanding, Proven Resource for Victims of Tragic Accidents

Our experience extends across many types of catastrophic events caused by someone’s negligence or misconduct, from fatal auto wrecks to on-the-job accidents, boating and offshore accidents, medical malpractice and a helicopter crash. We have also achieved positive outcomes when brain damage or a disabling spinal or back injury required lifelong care and rehabilitation.

Honest, Dependable Case Evaluation Based on Decades of Experience

Louisiana law allows the personal representative of a deceased person’s estate — generally an immediate family member — to file a wrongful death suit. The main standard for determining compensation is calculation of financial or “pecuniary” damages — including medical and funeral expenses, lost income and support, and loss of a prospective inheritance.

If evidence indicates your loved one was killed immediately in an accident, we will focus solely on the wrongful death cause of action. In other situations — such as death after pain and suffering, we can also pursue a survival cause of action that could increase your settlement. We have access to many top-quality investigators and experts in various technical fields that may be relevant to your case.

We take time to gain insight into the true financial and emotional impact of any wrongful death. Compassionate people as well as proven lawyers, we will focus on understanding and showing the closeness of your relationships as well as quantifying your loss.
