Losing a family member in an accident can be devastating for many reasons. Learning how to live without that person can seem impossible. In addition to the emotional pain you feel, you may be struggling financially, drowning in medical bills and funeral costs. If the person you lost was financially contributing to the household, you may have a tough time finding ways to make up for that lost income.
In Louisiana and other states across the nation, you can file a wrongful death suit against those responsible for the accident. If your suit is successful, you may recover compensation that will give you some financial relief and allow you to focus more on grieving the loss of your loved one.
One critical part of a successful wrongful death case is proving causation. You will need to establish a causal connection to prove that your loved one’s death was a result of the negligence of another party. This can be challenging, especially if your loved one died weeks or years after the accident due to medical complications in the recovery process. You will also need to establish financial losses by showing projected earnings over the expected lifespan of the person who passed on.
