What Is A Catastrophic Injury?
Most people will suffer a minor injury during their lifetime, from a broken wrist to a sprained ankle. Catastrophic injuries, however, are much more severe. They are injuries such as spinal cord damage, traumatic brain injuries or serious burns that alter the course of the victim’s life. They often damage the survivor’s ability to earn a living and enjoy life. Usually, catastrophic injuries also come with medical bills in the thousands of dollars. You will likely need a lawyer to assist you with an insurance claim or a lawsuit after such a serious incident.
What To Know About Wrongful Death In Louisiana
In our state, you have up to one year from the date of your loved one’s death to pursue a claim. The following people have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit:
- The decedent’s children, spouse, parents or children
- The decedent’s estate
If you miss the deadline to file the claim, you forfeit the right to recover compensation for your damages, including burial costs. It is crucial that you have us on your side to help with filing, advocacy and more.
