Wrongful DeathKentucky Wrongful Deaths

In Kentucky, any personal injury matter could result in a person's death. These cases, where a person dies due to the negligence, recklessness, or intentional acts of another, are called wrongful death suits. Examples of situations which acts of another have caused a death include, but are not limited to:

  • Person dies after being struck by a drunk driver;
  • Person dies due to the careless driving of another;
  • Person dies after falling down a flight of broken stairs;
  • Person dies after taking the wrong medication;
  • Person dies after being neglected or abused in a nursing home; or
  • Person dies after being attacked by a dog.

These are but a few types of examples. A wrongful death suit could result from any time a person or business bears some responsibility for injury to another, which then results or contributes to that person's death.
