When families are forced to endure the emotional trauma of losing a loved one, their trauma is usually compounded by the financial hardships created by things like burial costs, funeral expenses, and lost wages and benefits.  

When people are gravely injured in any kind of accident that stemmed from the reckless, negligent, or malicious act of another, their immediate family members may be entitled to file a claim of wrongful death with a New Orleans wrongful death attorney right away.
