What Compensation Is a Family Owed in a Wrongful Death Case?
There’s no replacing your loved one or the support they gave you, but a wrongful death case can help you carry on. In a wrongful death case, you may pursue several types of damages to help you heal and rebuild your life. They include:
- Medical bills for the care of your loved one. In many cases, loved ones will need hospitalization and care before they pass away. A wrongful death can help cover those expenses.
- Compensation for the lost income and support of your loved one. Our loved ones help us in many forms including care and services they provide to us directly. Families also relyonn their loved one’s income to pay the bills and take care of children. A wrongful death action can help you get the support and income you need to carry on.
- Pain and suffering. When you lose a loved one, it can be overwhelming. There may be compensation available to help you recover.
- Funeral costs and expenses. The final expenses of a loved one can add more bills to an already overwhelming situation. A wrongful death action can help recover these costs.
These and other damages may be available. Our attorneys will review your case and advise you on how you may recover. Contact us at (859) 550-2900 for a free consultation.
Types of Wrongful Death Cases We Handle
When someone’s negligence or wrongdoing results in the death of a loved one, we’re here to help you. The Kentucky attorneys at Hare Wynn have handled all types of wrongful death cases from start to finish. The types of cases we handle include:
- Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents. Vehicle accidents are a leading cause of wrongful death. We will investigate the accident, work with authorities, and file any lawsuits needed.
- Reckless or negligence operation of equipment. Workers and bystanders put their lives on the line at construction sites. When someone is not properly trained, or acts carelessly, the company and the individual may be liable.
- Unsafe medication. We count on prescription medication to make us healthier but sometimes medication can do more harm than good.
- Medical malpractice. Doctors and medical practitioners make mistakes. When they do, it can cost the health and lives of their patients.
- Faulty safety equipment. Every day workers rely on equipment to keep them safe. When that equipment fails, we can investigate and help survivors recover.
- Unsafe working conditions. Companies must follow state and Federal laws to keep workers safe. When they put profit above the law, they may be responsible for the deaths that occur.
- Toxic exposure. Workers often work with unknown substances and dangerous materials. If they’re killed by working with unsafe materials, a wrongful death case may be needed.
- Criminal acts. When people commit crimes, it’s possible for others to pay the price. If you lost a loved one due to a criminal act, we’ll help you pursue justice and compensation.
