Read our article “Who Can Recover from the Wrongful Death of a Loved One?“ which explains more about the legal nature of wrongful death claims. Louisiana law recognizes two different actions that arise out of a death cause by another person’s fault: (1) survival action, and (2) wrongful death action. It also details the list of people who may bring wrongful death or survival action lawsuits to recover damages sustained as a result of death.

On wrongful death claims, our attorneys usually charge a contingent fee where they are paid a percentage of the clients’ recovery rather than an hourly rate. This generally means that clients do not pay anything up front and lawyers do not get paid until clients get paid, and it is fully explained in the Parker Layrisson Law Firm written attorney-client fee agreement.
