How Long Will it Take to Receive Compensation?
This will of course vary from case to case, but typically, the stronger of a case we have, the more quickly we’ll be able to resolve it. Typically settling will mean the fastest resolution of your case because many settlements happen before the case goes to trial.
Even if your case does go to trial, there’s still the possibility of reaching a settlement. We may be able to reach a settlement even if a trial has begun.
Under What Circumstances Would We Try to Reach a Settlement?
A large majority of civil cases, such as wrongful death cases, are resolved by an out of court settlement. It’s unlikely that your case would see the inside of a courtroom.
We’d try to reach a settlement in almost every case because in many circumstances, it’s the fastest and most cost effective way for our clients to be compensated.
If we’re able to put together a convincing case, there’s a chance that we could reach a settlement sooner rather than later. If the opposing legal counsel feels they don’t have a good chance of winning in court, then they might be more inclined to settle quickly.
We’ll Build Your Case By Collecting Evidence and Building Arguments
In order to build a case that will help us recover a settlement or win in court, we’ll gather as much evidence as we can. The purpose of this is so that we’re able to lay out in detail the circumstances that caused the accident.
We’ll also argue for you to receive as much compensation as possible.

How Much Time Do You Have to File a Claim?
For wrongful death cases in Louisiana, the statute of limitations is one year according to CC Art. 2315.2.
The statute of limitations is significant to your case and something you should commit to memory because once this time has passed, you won’t be able to file a claim relating to that particular accident.
It’s crucial that you file a claim less than a year after the accident occurred. If not, then you won’t be able to be compensated for that particular accident.

The greatest testament to the way we conduct ourselves and treat our clients is what our clients themselves have to say.
- “I was feeling more and more pain and went to the doctor. I had two surgeries in my neck and my back. I made an appointment with David and it was a real good experience. He worked with me all the way and was like a good friend in a time of need. I don’t think anybody could have done a better job than he did,” said Keith.
- “I woke up and I was lying on my stomach, facedown in a ditch. David was a phenomenal individual. I felt secure; I felt that he was protecting me and my family, and he was going to get what us what we deserved. He was a great lawyer and went above and beyond,” said Kelsie.
What Could You Be Compensated For?
The party that’s responsible for causing the accident, or their insurance company if they’re insured, are responsible for paying any damages they’ve caused to others. This means that any cost that we’re able to show was caused by the accident is something we may be able to recover.
- Funeral expenses
- Property damage
- Medical expenses
- Loss of income
- Post traumatic stress
- Pain and suffering
Some of these are things that don’t have a clear cost. While you may receive a bill for a funeral that we can present for a jury, it’s less obvious how much one should be compensated for emotional distress. This is where it may prove useful to have a lawyer. Our job is to collect evidence and argue that you deserve more compensation.
