Justice with a Louisville Wrongful Death Lawyer
Often, when family members file a wrongful death lawsuit, they have questions that need to be answered. Their loved one’s untimely death doesn’t make any sense. The only way to find out what really happened or to hold a party accountable for their gross negligence or unlawful behavior is through filing a civil lawsuit.
Sometimes, you know what happened and who is responsible, but unless you file a lawsuit you can’t prove anything. The person or people responsible for your loved one’s death will go on their way and will never be held accountable for their actions. Unless they are held legally accountable, they may continue on with the same reckless behavior and hurt somebody else. For some, the deciding factor in filing a wrongful death suit is preventing the same thing from happening to another family.
When a Louisville woman was hit by a tow truck driver while she was crossing the street in April 2015, then struck and dragged by a sports news reporter who fled the scene of the accident without offering assistance to the victim, the family sought justice through filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Hit and run is a crime, but it is also clearly a tort (civil liability).
And this isn’t the only situation where a wrongful death suit should be filed. Medical malpractice, workplace accidents due to negligence, nursing home abuse and neglect, bad drugs, and virtually any situation where somebody breached a duty of care is grounds for a wrongful death suit when the victim dies of the injuries caused by the negligent party.
How a Wrongful Death Law Firm in Louisville Fights for You
We understand that filing a lawsuit may be the last thing you want to do at this time. But you want answers about how your loved one died, why he or she had to die, and nobody is going to come out and admit they did something wrong, especially if they want to avoid liability.
When you file a wrongful death lawsuit in civil court, your attorney can demand answers through the civil litigation process. As soon as the lawsuit is filed, we can legally demand production of records, both hard copy and electronic, including personal cell phones, text messages and social media. We can subpoena witnesses, as well as any parties directly involved, to appear at a deposition and testify under oath. We can subpoena parties who may have knowledge of what occurred to appear and testify, and we can demand access to all tangible evidence that may prove what happened and who is liable. Companies have been known to alter records in order to avoid responsibility. We have experience in proving that this is what happened.

Kentucky wrongful death law allows juries to award punitive damages. Punitive damages are meant to punish behavior that is grossly negligent or unlawful and to dissuade others from the same behavior. Because of this, punitive damage awards are usually large, often running into tens of millions of dollars.
Statute of Limitations
Kentucky allows one year from the date of death to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Though this is not a lot of time, it is important to take action before witnesses forget what they saw or move away and before the evidence is altered or disappears entirely.
