The pain of losing a loved one never goes away. Anyone who suffers such a loss knows that the loss is immeasurable but so is the love left behind. There is no amount of money or other legal remedy that will ever make up for your loss; the only civil remedy that is available is monetary in nature.
Tony Le Mon is very capable of asserting your rights to the fullest extent that the law allows.
Louisiana law recognizes two causes of action that can be brought by immediate family, starting with spouse and children; then father & mother; followed by siblings, and other relatives against those legally responsible for the death of your loved one, namely: (1) a ”wrongful death action” for grief and suffering personal to you, including loss of love, affection, companionship, consortium, and society, along with economic loss of income that would have been provided by your loved one, medical expenses, and other pecuniary losses; and (2) a “survival action” for the conscious pain that your loved one suffered after the incident giving rise to the claim plus certain medical expenses. Formal claims or lawsuits must be brought within one (1) year of death or, with rare exception, those claims are forever lost.
The Experience That Matters
Tony Le Mon has the 32 years of knowledge, skill, and experience as a lawyer and, most importantly, compassion to professionally address these very personal losses to you to ensure that the presentation of these losses are thoroughly presented to those responsible to give the best chance for an amicable settlement. Reliving the death of a loved one at trial would be yet another tragedy. A caring attorney should make every effort to prepare the best presentation of liability and losses to those responsible in hopes of avoiding a trial, but to send a clear message to those responsible that a trial is imminent and that he is well prepared for trial if the matter cannot be settled. This involves: a very careful analysis of accident scene and reports; securing important evidence of fault and loss; scrutinizing all medical records; preparing witnesses for testimony; creating a “day in the life” album and video focused on your loved one; and most importantly respectfully building with you a strong litigation strategy. You should ensure that all images and videos of your loved one along with all evidence of fault and the tragedy are immediately preserved and consult Tony Le Mon without delay at (504) 905-8811(c) to gain the best possible legal advice and allow him to take the responsibility of promptly investigating the accident, questioning witnesses, and preserving evidence during that critical time after an accident when memories are fresh and evidence remains intact.
