Fatal accidents are often a call to action for those left behind

Losing a loved one is a devastating event, especially if the person who passed away is someone you were close to. When the death was caused by an accident that could have been prevented, the devastation that you feel is likely going to be enhanced. We understand that this is a difficult time for you.

Accidents that are caused by drunk, fatigued or distracted drivers are some of the most difficult ones to deal with. This is because one person's desire to drive somewhere even though he or she wasn't able to do so safely ended up killing an innocent person. Having to live with this thought in your mind might be more than what you want to think about, but this is the reality that you will have to contend with.

We realize that you might feel called to do something to avenge your loved one's death. When a negligent or reckless driver was the cause of your loved one's death, your answer might be a wrongful death lawsuit. This is a way that you can hold the person accountable in court.

A wrongful death lawsuit goes one step beyond just holding the person accountable. It also seeks to have them contribute to the financial devastation that occurred because of your loved one's death. A successful claim can help you to cover the final expenses that you had to pay, as well as other expenses related to the death.

We can help you get the wrongful death lawsuit together and get it filed. Be sure that you don't wait too long. There are time limits in Kentucky for these cases.
