What kind of damages might be awarded in a wrongful death suit?

The death of a loved one is never easy, but it can be especially difficult when the loved one was killed due to the actions of another person. For example, a person in Louisiana could be killed by a negligent driver in a car crash, through an act of medical malpractice by a physician or even due to a criminal act. When this happens, the victim's family may want to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the party responsible for the victim's death. Through this type of lawsuit, the victim's family can pursue damages, specifically, pecuniary damages.
