Losing a loved one is always difficult but when the death was preventable, it is simply beyond tragic. When a fatality in New Orleans occurs due to negligence, the family of the victim may be eligible to recover compensation through a wrongful death personal injury lawsuit. The Law Offices of Michelle D. Robert works with the families of victims of wrongful death to help them find some semblance of closure by recovering some of the financial losses incurred.
Death may be inevitable, but no one should have their life taken from them through another person’s negligence or mistakes. Wrongful death lawsuits in Louisiana seek to examine the circumstances that lead to the death of a victim. Many wrongful deaths may be labeled accidents, but they were still likely preventable, and therefore, avoidable.
A seasoned Louisiana wrongful death lawyer from The Law Offices of Michelle D. Robert can uncover evidence and perform painstaking investigations to reveal the facts pointing to negligence. They can also negotiate or litigate your claim to win the highest possible compensation for your family from the liable party or entity.
Types of Louisiana Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Many wrongful deaths in Louisiana are caused each year due to airplane crashes, explosions, catastrophic accidents and car crashes with multiple fatalities. Single-person fatalities are just as heart-breaking, such as an innocent victim in a car crash caused by a distracted driver. The Law Offices of Michelle D. Robert handles these and other types of wrongful death lawsuits in Louisiana, including:
- Car, truck and motorcycle accidents
- Construction site accidents
- Product liability
- Premise liability
Each wrongful death claim is unique and may be subject to other laws, which can complicate matters. Your legal team from The Law Offices of Michelle D. Robert has the skills and expertise to handle the most complex wrongful death claims, and we care about what happens to your family. We will not allow you to suffer these terrible circumstances alone and without legal protection.
Seeking Compensation in New Orleans for a Wrongful Death Claim
While no dollar amount can be placed on the value of a life, the financial hardships suffered by the victim’s family and loved ones deserve compensation; and the party or parties responsible should pay a price for their negligence.

At times, the courts may also award punitive damages for some negligent actions.
