Who We Are And How We Help
The lawyers of Hargadon, Lenihan & Herrington are very experienced with Kentucky and Louisville wrongful death cases. Our attorneys have over 100 years of combined experience as trial attorneys, and we are the oldest plaintiffs’ personal injury firm in Louisville, Kentucky, having opened our doors in 1924. We are ready to aggressively and skillfully pursue any case.
Because of our well-known trial experience, many people think that we try to bring every case into the courtroom. We prepare every case for trial, but the truth is that our clients are often best served if we work hard toward a fair out-of-court settlement. Out-of-court settlements are less stressful and time consuming, but if a reasonable settlement cannot be reached, we will be fully prepared to go to trial. Our opponents know of our trial preparation and reputation, which gives us more leverage in negotiations.
Statute Of Limitations Applies In Wrongful Death Cases
However, you should know that you do not have an unlimited amount of time to begin a lawsuit. There is a statute of limitations with wrongful death cases that limit the time for which you may file a lawsuit. It varies from state to state, so in Kentucky the limitations may be different than Indiana’s or any other state.
