Few things in life are more painful than having a loved one die as a result of another person’s negligence. At a time like that, you should worry about the healing process, not bills and other money issues. If the death was caused by the negligence of another person or organization, you or your family’s representative may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit that will compensate you, at least financially, for your tragic loss. The experienced Louisville wrongful death lawyers at HLH will manage all of the legal details so that you may focus upon supporting one another at this difficult time.
Wrongful death cases can come from any type of accident, including those involving:
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.
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.
Our Louisville wrongful death lawyers truly care about their clients, and that concern translates to hard work and a history of successful litigation.
