Understanding Wrongful Death Claims In Kentucky
Nobody should have to experience the untimely loss of a loved one. The death of a spouse, child, parent or another family member in a fatal accident can leave you with both emotional and financial struggles.
Wrongful death claims are designed to compensate you for the financial aspects of your loss. Of course, you can’t put a price tag on the life of your loved one. But you can build the foundation for a better financial future by obtaining recovery for:
- Your loved one’s medical bills
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Your loved one’s conscious pain and suffering
- Lost earnings
- Loss of consortium for a spouse or child
If an intentional act or gross negligence – such as drunk driving – contributed to your loss, you may also be entitled to punitive damages.
