Fatal Car Accident Attorney in St. Tammany Parish

You never want to be the one at the receiving end of a phone call telling you that a loved one has been killed in a car accident. Unfortunately, for dozens of families in the greater Slidell area each year, that is the reality.

While no compensation can ever restore your loss, it can ease the financial stress that comes in the wake of losing a loved one. The attorneys at Law Offices of Edward A. Shamis, Jr., J.D., P.C. can help you fight for the justice you deserve.

Understanding Fatal Car Accident Cases

The types of compensation to which you may be entitled following a fatal car accident vary based on the circumstances. Nearly all families can seek compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of companionship
  • Wrongful death
  • Property damage (vehicle repairs/replacement)

In the event that your loved one did not die at the time of the wreck but died in the hospital from injuries suffered in the accident, you may also pursue compensation for pain and suffering on his or her behalf. This is called a “survival action.” It is a separate claim from a wrongful death claim.
