What should you do if your family loses a loved one in a fatal accident in Louisville or across Kentucky which was due to another person’s negligence? What is a “wrongful death” and how can the experienced attorneys at Hargadon, Lenihan & Herrington, PLLC (HLH) protect your family’s interests and hold those responsible financially accountable?
In Kentucky, a wrongful death occurs when someone loses their life due to the negligence or actions of another. While there may be a criminal element to the case, such as driving under the influence, wrongful death is a civil or financial remedy under Kentucky law.
A wrongful death most often occurs in a fatal car accident, truck collision or motorcycle crash. However, it may also be the result of fire, dangerous conditions in a public property or business (known as premises liability), defective products or inadequate security conditions surrounding parking lots, hospitals or other facilities. The experienced wrongful death attorneys at HLH have more than 100 years of combined experience in these complex legal cases. We have represented the families of wrongful death victims and other injuries since 1924 and are the oldest plaintiffs’ personal injury firm in Louisville. We will aggressively represent your family and investigate what happened and all who contributed to the wrongful death of your loved one, and hold them financially accountable for what has happened.
It may seem confusing what to do if your family loses a loved one in a fatal accident in Louisville or across Kentucky. Kentucky law provides a fairly short “Statute of Limitations” in these cases so it is important to contact HLH to learn more about the process and all we will do to represent your family. The laws regarding who may seek recovery are a bit complicated, especially when you consider the amount of blended and extended families throughout Western Kentucky.
