A wrongful death, in legal terms, is a death caused by another person's carelessness or recklessness. In simple terms, it is a death that could — and should — have been prevented. In the United States, there are roughly 150,000 such fatalities in an average year. The leading causes are vehicle accidents, medical malpractice and unsafe premises.
There is no replacement for a lost family member. There are only means to reduce the burdens related to such a loss.
At Dixie Law Group, PSC, we help families get compensation to offset the financial damage they suffer as a result of a loved one's death. We seek monetary benefits for a wide range of considerations, including:
An additional unfairness is that wrongful death claims must be filed quickly. In Kentucky, families have only one year to file after their relative has died. For this reason, it is especially important to find an experienced and understanding attorney who can make sure you assemble the strongest possible claim.
Our wrongful death attorneys offer free initial consultations. This permits us to assess your situation and inform you of your options before you have to pay. We don't charge anything at all unless your claim is successful.
