Wrongful Death Claims in Louisiana
In Louisiana, wrongful death claimants need to have a very specific relationship
with the deceased in order to file suit. In most cases, the claimant is
the surviving spouse or child of the deceased. When there is no surviving
spouse or children, the surviving parents, surviving siblings, or surviving
grandparents may be able to file suit, depending on the family's circumstances.

The following damages can be claimed in a wrongful death suit:
- Lost future wages and benefits
- Lost future household services
- Pain and suffering experienced by the deceased before death
- Medical bills resulting from the accident
- Funeral expenses
Claimants can also collect damages for the loss of "care, companionship,
guidance, and emotional support" they were provided by the deceased.
