Survival Actions and Wrongful Death Actions

Experiencing the death of a family member in a fatal accident is a traumatic event. As your family struggles to deal with the loss, there may be legal and financial issues that need to be addressed.

At Oriol Law Firm, we help family members of wrongful death victims obtain their due compensation from those who are responsible for the death and their insurance companies. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

David Oriol is experienced in wrongful death claims involving:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Other types of negligence

We will take immediate steps to collect and preserve evidence of liability. This evidence may include accident reports, witness statements, accident reconstruction and expert statements.

Survival Actions and Wrongful Death Actions

In Louisiana, there are two legal actions that family members may have a right to pursue after a wrongful death:

  • survival action, which seeks to recover compensation the deceased person would have been entitled to recover if he or she had survived. This includes compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages incurred prior to death.
  • wrongful death action, which seeks to recover compensation for family members. This includes compensation such as lost financial support, loss of consortium and loss of parental guidance.

We offer a free consultation to determine who in your family has a right to file survival and wrongful death actions.

No fees unless we win your case. We represent family members on a contingency fee basis. This means that you will not owe any legal fees unless we obtain compensation for you.
