Fighting To Obtain Compensation When A Loved One Dies In An Accident

Kentucky tort law provides remedies to the survivors of family members and loved ones after an accidental death. Fatal car crashes are a common example. Other examples include consuming tainted food or medicine and being mortally wounded at an industrial work site.

When a person is killed through another person’s fault, Kentucky tort law allows a close family member or loved one to bring a lawsuit to obtain financial compensation for their loss. You must know that these cases must be filed within two years of a death. We are ready to serve your legal needs and fight for justice in Hardin County and central Kentucky.

The first part of a case involves proving that the other person was responsible for the action that killed the family’s loved one. For example, we may have to prove that a party was responsible for causing a fatal auto accident. Proving responsibility for the wrongful death entitles the family to collect financial damages that reflect the value of their loss.
