Juvenile is responsible for fatal accident, per authorities


Over the years, many car accidents on Louisiana roads have led to numerous fatalities. In many cases, the offending car's driver may be found guilty of any number of traffic violations, including road rage, speeding, distracted driving or driving under the influence. Louisiana has strict laws which prohibit any car driver from violating its traffic laws. Another result of these numerous car accidents is that victims initiate personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits in order to attempt to receive compensation for medical expenses and for the loss of a loved one.

Right to claim compensation for wrongful death in Louisiana


Fatal motor vehicle accidents tend to be incredibly harsh on the family members of the victim. The family has to cope with sudden loss of a loved one as well as face potential financial problems if the victim was the primary earner in the family. If any such fatal accident occurred due to the fault of another person, it is only fair that person be made liable by law to pay compensation to the family of the victim.
