Should You File A Wrongful Death Claim?
If you have lost a loved one because of someone else’s negligence, it is difficult to even contemplate legal matters. You need time to grieve and work through the emotions of the situation. The decision will always be yours to make but there are a few reasons talking to a lawyer about a claim may be a good choice.
For one, this is going to hurt financially, not just emotionally. On top of funeral costs, you are potentially losing a source of income or of household support such as upkeep and caring for the children. Maybe you cannot afford to avoid a wrongful death claim.
Some families also find closure in it. Nothing can change what happened or replace the loved one you lost, but wrongful death claims may help you move forward. At the Knightshead Law Firm, we believe your case is always your choice. If you think a claim is right for you or you have questions about it, feel free to meet with us.
We Will Guide You In Filing Your Case
Generally, only immediate family of the deceased can file a claim. In Louisiana, you only have a year from your loved one’s passing to bring a wrongful death claim, so it is important to contemplate your options sooner rather than later.
When you have so much on your mind and feel lost on what to do, we are here for you. Our mission is to help people in challenging situations. We value you and care about what you are going through.
