Wrongful Death Verdict

The Louisiana Supreme Court denied writs in case involving the death of a woman, her mother, her 2-year-old daughter and the child’s 3-year-old cousin. The four were killed when an 18-wheeler struck head-on the minivan in which they were riding.

In an unpublished opinion, the Louisiana 1st Circuit Court of Appeal upheld a jury verdict from East Baton Rouge Parish involving the four fatalities. Our clients included the husband seeking justice for his deceased wife and daughter, and two minor children for the loss of their mother.

The total verdict from the East Baton Rouge Parish jury exceeded $4 million. The jury granted—and the 1st Circuit upheld—a $2.7 million award to the husband and a $650,000 award to each minor child.

Our firm is proud of the justice we delivered for the family of the victims in this tragedy.
