"Boyd Anderson: Hi. I'm Boyd Anderson, a personal injury attorney in Lafayette, Louisiana. From time to time, our clients ask for advice when their family has sustained a tragedy such as a wrongful death caused by the negligence of another. What damages are available for wrongful death under Louisiana law? Should a claim even be filed when, obviously, no amount of money will bring back their loved one? I urge you to contact an experienced personal injury attorney to address these issues. Number one, there are multiple categories of damages available for wrongful death. The funeral expenses, the expenses of the last illness, pre-impact fear, pain and suffering by the deceased. Most importantly, generous general damages for the loved ones left behind which frequently include future lost wages.
