A claim seeks compensation when “a person dies due to the fault of another,” according to Louisiana Civil Code Section 2512.2. The death may be caused by:
- the fault of another human being, or the result of wrongdoing by an entity like a corporation.
- an accident or a purposeful action.
- The purposeful action may be negligent, reckless, or an intentional act.
Wrongful death laws were established to ensure compensation for families of wrongful death victims. Regardless of the reasons, the victim’s family should retain the services of an experienced wrongful death lawyer.
Since the burden of proof is the responsibility of the victim’s family, it is essential to act quickly.
