Losing a loved one in an accident is often times the hardest thing people have to go through in their entire lives. Nothing is ever going to fully make amends for the pain and grief you and your loved ones have suffered. But, by pursuing a wrongful death claim against whoever was responsible, you can work to hold that person accountable for what he or she did.
One unfortunate aspect of Kentucky law is that you cannot collect damages for the actual loss of your loved one's life. You can, however, pursue damages for a variety of different claims related to the loss of your loved one such as loss of consortium and lost earnings.
It is essential that you work with an attorney who understands the full scope of the laws affecting wrongful death claims. Your attorney should understand the different types of claims, how they apply to your situation, as well as the many other complexities involved in a wrongful death case.
