Our Wrongful Death Attorneys Can Help After a Deadly Crash in New Orleans
Every driver’s greatest fear while on the road is the possibility of a fatal car accident. Louisiana drivers are justified in this fear. Our state is home to the sixth deadliest stretch of highway in the country on I-12 near Baton Rouge. The risk of the worst possible outcome is always present.
If a loved one has been killed in a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation under Louisiana’s wrongful death law. Close family members of the victim have a right to file a claim based on the losses resulting from the individual’s death. If your family has experienced this tragedy, you should contact our compassionate New Orleans fatal car accident attorneys at Bloom Legal as soon as you are ready to do so.
Fatal car accident lawsuits, or any wrongful death claim, can be difficult for many reasons. Because the car crash victim is deceased, it poses some unique obstacles when it comes to providing evidence that can make the procedures challenging. Other contributing difficulties are the emotional and financial struggles you face after the death of your loved one.
Here at Bloom Legal, we are dedicated to providing emotionally accommodating representation. Contact us to learn more about how our Louisiana car accident attorneys can help your family.
How Our New Orleans Fatal Car Accident Lawyers Can Help
A wrongful death claim can offer your family some financial relief in the form of awarding damages. These are some losses that these awards can cover:
- Medical bills
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of financial support and household income
- Loss of household services and labor the deceased provided
- Emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of care and companionship
- Loss of consortium
Of course, no amount of money can replace the love and affection of a family member, but you and your family deserve as much compensation as can be claimed in the state of Louisiana. While filing a wrongful death claim after a fatal car accident won’t bring back your loved one, it can make your life a little easier financially.

"I contacted Bloom Legal out of the blue with a strange question for a fiction series I’m writing that takes place in New Orleans. Being from Maryland I was in the dark and needed assistance and they jumped at the chance to help me (they were the only law firm that responded to my e-mail). His team worked quickly and carefully to find the information I needed. Because of the help they provided it changed a large aspect of my novel and for that I am very grateful."
