Trusted Wrongful Death Law Firm for Families of Fatal Accident Victims in Louisiana, Mississippi & Tennessee

Nothing is more wrenching than losing a loved one suddenly— especially when it is caused by an accident that didn’t have to happen.

You’re consumed by grief, confusion, anger.

If this has happened to you and your family, you have our deepest sympathy.

And there may be something we can do to help.

A large percentage of The Bowling Christiansen Law Firm’s cases in Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee involve wrongful death claims, which is a type of personal injury case.

These wrongful deaths can occur because of vehicle accidents , medical malpractice , pharmacy errors or other causes.

When someone dies in such a traumatic way—caused by the negligent behavior of another person or a business—various family members could be able to claim financial compensation from the negligent party:

  • First, surviving spouses and children.
  • If the person who died doesn’t leave behind a spouse or child, their parents could make a claim.
  • If no parents, then siblings could make a claim.
  • And then grandparents of the deceased person.

Money can never reverse a tragedy.

But surviving family members do need resources—possibly to replace support that was lost along with the loved one—in order to keep themselves going.

Seeking Financial Recovery In A Wrongful Death Lawsuit

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of earnings

Additionally, in certain wrongful death cases, some of the family members and/or other beneficiaries of the victim may also be entitled to punitive damages.

Information You Need for a Wrongful Death Claim in Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee

Many wrongful death claims involve dealing with the insurance company for the negligent party. Some include filing lawsuits against the negligent party.

Proving negligence is always at the core of a wrongful death case, as it is with any personal injury claim.

Wrongful death claims may include providing evidence of these conditions:

  • The at-fault person or business entity had a duty to provide reasonable care for the safety of the deceased.
  • They failed to provide that care.
  • Or they even intended to cause harm.
  • The result was the death of your loved one.
  • Family members are suffering economic losses due to this death.

The negligent party could be the other driver in a fatal collision. It could be a pharmacy that issued a fatally wrong prescription. It could be the manufacturer of a product that caused harm. It could be a trucking company in a crash involving a semi-truck. It could be a property owner who maintained unsafe conditions on their property.

Of course, when you’re facing an insurance company or another business, they’ll have their lawyers, too.

Your wrongful death lawyer is there to make sure you’re treated fairly in this process, and you receive the fullest compensation available to you.
