For Louisiana residents who have been involved in an accident, the road to recovery is long and difficult. Car accident victims can face countless medical bills, severe physical injuries and months of rehabilitation. For the victims that do not survive, their families will have to find a way to move forward without them. This is no easy task, especially when the deceased family member was contributing financially to the household.
So, what can families who have lost a loved one do to improve their situations? In cases where another party's negligence caused the victim's death, a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed against them to hold them accountable for what they did. In order for the family to receive compensation, they must prove liability, as well as damages suffered.
