St. Bernard Parish Wrongful Death Attorney

Wrongful Death Law in Louisiana & Statute of Limitations

In the state of Louisiana, wrongful death occurs when an individual dies due to the fault of another party. This death can be caused by an individual person or an entity, and may be the result of negligence, recklessness, or even intentional actions. Our firm understands that dealing with the loss of a loved one in such a tragic manner is a difficult, emotional, and unexpected situation. Few immediately consider taking legal action and even fewer know where to begin. However, due to the statute of limitations in place, the family members or personal representative of the estate has one year from the date of death to file a wrongful death claim.
