Wrongful Death

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.

Offsetting Unfair Costs

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:

  • Burial costs and funeral expenses
  • Medical fees incurred prior to death
  • The deceased's pain and suffering
  • Lost inheritance
  • Lost income

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.
