Recently, a 35 year old man was fatally injured in an accident in Louisville that involved a 25 year old driver who was allegedly under the influence at the time of the accident. What should your family do if you lose a loved one resulting in a wrongful death due to a DUI accident in Louisville?
The accident occurred on I-264 West near Taylor Boulevard just after midnight. The DUI driver ran off the right shoulder of the interstate and ran into the back of another vehicle which was disabled on the side of the road. The 35 year old victim was sitting in the passenger seat when the vehicle was struck and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The DUI driver of the vehicle who caused the crash can be held accountable by the 35 year old victim’s family in a “wrongful death” lawsuit. The experienced wrongful death attorneys at Hargadon, Lenihan & Herrington, PLLC (HLH) have represented families and the estates of accident victims in wrongful death cases for decades.
DUI wrongful death cases can be legally quite complex. Reports from the scene showed the DUI driver was charged with murder, DUI and driving without insurance. What happens if the DUI driver was uninsured at the time of the accident?
This case will likely involve the victim’s own Uninsured Motorist/UnderInsured Motorist (UM/UIM) insurance. Many HLH clients have been shocked and disappointed by the treatment they receive from their own insurance company when they call about a UM/UIM claim. HLH’s experienced injury attorneys represent our clients and work aggressively to ensure they receive the full and fair compensation they deserve.
