Abbeville La Wrongful Death Attorney

Wrongful death laws were created to ensure compensation for families left behind. Additionally, they provide an incentive for others to be more responsible with the health and wellbeing of others. In order to protect these reasons, you should call upon an experienced Wrongful Death Attorney.

Clayton Burgess, our Abbeville attorneys have helped many families deal with the tragedy of sudden loss. We can provide you with an initial consultation FREE of charge, regardless of whether you retain our services.

Our experienced wrongful death attorneys will be able to investigate the victim’s death and determine if the four elements of wrongful death are present. The elements include:

  • The conduct of the individual that caused the victim’s death.
  • The individual was negligent or strictly liable for the victim’s death.
  • The victim has surviving family or beneficiaries.
  • The victim’s death resulted in financial damages.

The Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess can provide information on whether to pursue an action in court. Louisiana’s Statute of Limitations for Wrongful Death gives one year to file a wrongful death claim in court, usually starting from the date of the deceased person’s death. The family of the victim should not delay filing suit, or they may not get the compensation they deserve. Facing lost income, costly medical bills, final expenses or End of Life care costs can be devastating. Our team of wrongful death attorneys will work with you to recover compensation so you can focus on what matters.
