If you are reading this, it means you have likely lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence. We offer you our condolences. What you are experiencing right now is likely confusing and overwhelming. But you are here, which means you know it is time to turn your legal concerns over to someone else to handle your wrongful death claim so you can focus on other things.
At Gautreaux Law, we provide dedicated legal representation to family members who have lost loved ones in fatal personal injury accidents. We offer our ear to listen, our knowledge to answer your questions, and our experience to go after the person or company that caused your loved one’s death.
Understanding Whether You Have a Wrongful Death Case
The first question on your mind is likely whether you even have a case worth pursuing. Unfortunately, the answer is not always obvious. Most mistakes are not quickly observable or known immediately after the death. Instead, it is often a gut feeling that causes you to question what happened. Listen to that gut feeling and reach out to an experienced lawyer.
It costs nothing to ask your questions and explain what happened. If your lawyer feels you may have a wrongful death claim, he or she will then seek the answers using the resources at his or her disposal and then pursue financial recovery if someone’s negligence played a part in your loved one’s death.
What a Financial Recovery Actually Means in a Wrongful Death Case
We know that no amount of money will ever make up for the loss of your loved one. But seeking financial compensation from the negligent actor or company does accomplish several necessary things:
- Enables you to get the money you need to pay for your loved one’s final expenses, from medical care to funeral costs.
- Compensates you for your loved one’s income that you will no longer receive.
- Provides financial support that addresses the grief and suffering you feel at the loss of your loved one.
- Holds the responsible party or parties accountable for their actions (or inaction).
We will seek to uncover the full history of the fatal event to ensure we then put together a case that seeks a recovery that properly compensates you for all of these aspects.
