Wrongful death

Wrongful death


Serving New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Louisiana Metro and Northshore Areas

Losing a loved one is never easy. But when your loved one has been untimely taken away from you because of someone else’s carelessness or wrongdoing, it’s even worse. While no legal action taken can restore your loved one, wrongful death claims can help you financially cope in their absence.

Lawyers at Ellen Cronin Badeaux, LLC have 30 years of experience with wrongful death lawsuits. They will fight to get you the justice and compensation you deserve.

Wrongful Death Claims

If your loved one’s death was the result of another party’s negligence or misconduct, you can at least take legal action to help you bear the financial burden. You may be entitled to compensation for:

> Medical expenses
> Funeral expenses
> Property damage
> Pain and suffering
> Loss of income
> Loss of consortium
> Alternate transportation

Louisiana has a one-year statute of limitations on wrongful death claims, so it’s important to see a lawyer right away. Ellen Cronin Badeaux, LLC understands that this is a difficult time for you and your family. They will compassionately offer her legal advice as she pursues just compensation from the liable party’s insurers.

When clients’ wrongful death claims are met with delays or denials of a settlement offer or when settlement offers do not fairly compensate you for your losses, Ellen Cronin Badeaux, LLC will pursue your interests through wrongful death lawsuits, including attorney fees, court costs and penalties for bad faith.

"I would like to thank your firm for everything you’ve done to help me keep 50/50 custody of my son. I came to you on very short notice but you knew exactly how to handle my case and I couldn’t be happier. I’m sure I will be working with you again in the future."
"After retaining two lawyers who made no progress, I retained Ellen Cronin Badeaux. Yesterday was our first hearing together and it was a major success. Ellen was professional, diligent, and a fighter...I am very glad I found her and will refer her to others without a doubt."
"Ms. Badeaux has been an excellent family attorney for us. Her time and personal commitment have allowed us to make informed decisions. We have had to trust her with very delicate and emotional issues and she has guided us to excellent outcomes. I will always appreciate the exceptional service she provides our family with. I have always liked the statement, "you get what you pay for"; and Mrs. Badeaux has been well worth it."

"Hey Ellen, I truly appreciate you sitting through today’s hearing. I know that you didn’t have to and it meant more than you’ll ever know. Thank you. I don’t have very much money anymore but I am going to do everything I can to get this bill paid so that I can have representation. Thank you once again for me being such an incredible woman. It’s rare and noted. Have an amazing night and a Happy Valentines Day. Thank you. YG"
