Seek Justice After The Wrongful Death Of A Loved One
Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things one may go through in life, no matter the circumstances. When a death has been caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, the pain is that much greater. Nothing can replace the friend of family member you’ve lost, but there is some consolation in the fact that you may have grounds to file a wrongful death lawsuit in order to obtain closure and financial compensation for your loss.
The personal injury attorneys at Michael L. Hawkins & Associates, P.L.L.C., will help you determine the strength of your case, and we will push to make sure you receive the full compensation to which you are entitled under Kentucky law.
Wrongful Death Can Take Many Forms
Wrongful death can result from any number of activities, including:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Gas explosions
- Defective drugs
Kentucky’s personal injury law differs from that of some other states in important ways. For instance, in Kentucky a spouse can seek financial compensation for pain and suffering while the injured spouse is still alive, but after death a separate claim must be filed — for loss of spousal consortium. A lawyer can help you navigate details like these and others as you seek compensation for your loss.
