Don’t settle before you get legal counsel.
When someone you love is killed without warning, it leaves you to deal with the aftermath alone. Suddenly coping with the loss of a treasured companion and the support they brought can be a staggering task. If you need help dealing with the financial burden of the wrongful death of someone close to you, an experienced attorney can give you the aid you need. Our team at the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess have helped many families like you find financial peace in order to properly mourn their loss.
Wrongful death laws were established to ensure compensation for families of wrongful death victims as well as provide an incentive for others to act more carefully and safely with the health and welfare of others. 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.
Cases where the victim has suffered catastrophic injury or loss of life has occurred, can be particularly complex. Our Louisiana wrongful death attorneys at the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess are specialists in this field. They will meticulously investigate the case and ensure all of the facts of the case are presented to the court in a clear and concise manner. Since the burden of proof is the responsibility of the victim’s family, it is essential to act quickly.
