An attorney's ramblings about Louisiana wrongful death law


The following is a manager’s rant about how to handle the death of your colleague. The manager should not take this piece of advice lightly.

  • I do not wish for anyone to be offended by this piece of advice, so if you are offended, please do not ask questions about it. If you don’t understand what it means, I’ll explain it in a minute.

A couple years ago our department lost one of our members to cancer. After some time had passed and he was being treated for his illness, we found out that he had only weeks left to live. We were all genuinely sad and shocked at the news, but when we received word that he would be gone within days,

we all knew that we would have to deal with the situation soon enough. When the whole department heard the news they were really shocked at how quickly time was flying by and even more shocked than before when they learned that there was nothing done during those last few weeks and days to make him feel better or prepare us for his death (aside from ending up in tears in his bed). There were several different reactions:

Some people cried and hugged each other after hearing the news; others went into shock right away; some prepared themselves mentally for the inevitable; others tried to ignore everything because life goes on; still others either got drunk or started abusing drugs to numb their minds before any real change could arrive from such an event; some just stayed strong as a rock in their denial of grief over such a loss.

Some individuals chose their reaction based on what they thought they should be doing or feeling at that moment and made no sense whatsoever as far as being prepared for his impending death was concerned (some even argued against preparing physically or mentally because he was supposedly going through physical therapy right now!?!?). However, many people reacted like adults who understood exactly how much time they had left with

Louisiana wrongful death law is different than other states.

Louisiana wrongful death law is different than other states. The reason for this is that Louisiana does not require a family to prove that the person’s death was preventable or that the person was capable of being aware of what was happening around them. This means that if you have lost a loved one in an accident and your attorney determines there were no reasonable precautions or precautions were taken which could have prevented the injury/death, then you may be able to file a claim under Louisiana law!

This type of approach makes sense given our state’s history with hurricanes and floods—Louisiana has experienced many devastating hurricanes over the years, including Hurricane Katrina which brought over $100 billion dollars worth of damage after making landfall on August 29th 2005 (the date listed above).

The family of a deceased person in Louisiana does not have to prove that the person’s death was preventable or that the person was capable of being aware of what was happening around them.

Louisiana wrongful death law does not require the family of a deceased person to prove that the person’s death was preventable or that they were capable of being aware of what was happening around them. This is true even if you have serious injuries and lost your ability to care for yourself, such as due to dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

Instead, all that is required by Louisiana law is proof that someone caused your injury (or if it was simply an accident) and then left you unattended after doing so—and this can include leaving someone on their own in a house or car until they died from natural causes.
An attorney's ramblings about Louisiana wrongful death law

When an individual dies due to an injury, the death is called “accidental.” When an individual dies due to an illness, the death is called “disease-related.”

You may have heard the terms “accidental” and “disease-related” used to describe deaths. These are two different types of death, and they have different causes.

An accidental death is caused by an accident such as a car crash or house fire. Disease-related deaths come from a disease process that has already begun before death occurs (such as cancer). A disease-related death can also be caused by another medical condition or injury sustained during normal living (for example: heart attack).

The difference between accidental and disease-related deaths lies in when they occur: Accidents happen at random times; diseases must wait until their course has become established before it can cause harm to its host body

These categories are subject to interpretation by medical professionals.

When it comes to medical professionals, there are a lot of things they can do wrong. They could be misinformed or mistaken about the cause of someone’s death. They could also make mistakes in their assessments of illness and treatment options.

Medical professionals are not infallible and should not be considered above reproach when making decisions about your loved one’s care as well as their estate planning needs after death.

This issue will be different from state to state and on a case-to-case basis.

This issue is different from state to state and on a case-to-case basis. The law in Louisiana is different from other states, but there are some similarities between the laws in Louisiana and other states. For example, many wrongful death lawsuits have been brought by parents who lost their child during childbirth or because of child abuse; however, these cases are rare because they are difficult to prove and require extensive medical evidence.

In addition to being difficult for plaintiffs (people who bring lawsuits), obtaining damages can also be difficult for defendants (the people being sued). While most people see lawsuits as “legal blips,” many insurance companies refuse to cover liability claims because they fear losing money on them — even if there’s no evidence that an accident actually occurred!


Summary: If you are in a car accident and the other driver is at fault, the crash victim’s family will likely pursue legal action against the other driver. But what if the accident was caused by another individual or entity? In that case, no one will file a lawsuit against you (although your personal injury lawyer may). You can be sued for negligence only if you were negligent for some reason. Does that mean that you didn’t do anything wrong? No! This section explains how to determine whether someone else was negligent and provides helpful information about Louisiana personal injury laws.


Section: Louisiana law allows a person who is injured in an accident to sue someone else for negligence.

Section: The injured party must prove that someone else was negligent and was responsible for causing his or her injuries.

Takeaway: In this state, there are several avenues by which an individual who is hurt can get compensation from someone else. This section will help you understand how to identify those avenues so that when they become available, you know how to use them successfully.

Summary: Did your medical provider make mistakes during your medical treatment? Maybe something went wrong with your surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy and now you’re suffering from physical pain or mental anguish? Did mistakes occur during the hospitalization process? Are procedures flawed or not as thorough as they could have been because of some problem with equipment maintenance or hospital-level error prevention policies?

Can it all be traced back to one person —your doctor—in some way? If so, which one of these scenarios represents your situation best? Or maybe it’s more complex than this but different aspects of your health problems are being handled differently by different parties…each with their own expertise in their area so even though care is being provided overall, each specialist has been made aware of areas concerning themselves where they haven’t been able to give clear direction
