Wrongful Death

Dedicated Wrongful Death Law Firm

Getting grieving families justice for their loss

At The Goode Law Firm, we strongly believe negligent parties must be held responsible if they cause the death of another. We are zealously dedicated to ensuring you receive the maximum compensation possible for your loss — not only to help your family move forward, but also to punish negligent individuals and companies for their actions.

Pursuing damages

Prompt action is critical to obtaining damages after the death of a family member.  You have a limited period of time to file a wrongful death suit.  We are well-versed in the courtroom tactics the opposition uses in such trials to attempt to limit their liability, and we counter their arguments with carefully planned responses designed to protect your rights.  Attorney Michael S. O’Brien will work hard to ensure you receive compensation for:

  • Loss of love, affection and companionship
  • Medical costs
  • Funeral expenses
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of protection and guidance
  • Benefits lost due to the victim’s death, including medical insurance

We can also help you recover damages for pain and suffering if your family member did not file a personal injury lawsuit prior to their passing.

Have a wealth of knowledge on your side

We have an in-depth understanding of how to construct wrongful death lawsuits in Louisiana courts.  We frequently work with private investigators and experts to establish liability, obtain testimonials from witnesses, collect and preserve evidence, and perform a myriad of other tasks to build a case on your behalf.

While we settle suits prior to going to court if doing so is likely to produce a favorable result, we do not hesitate to litigate cases when necessary.
