Understanding Wrongful Death Claims in Louisville

The term wrongful death applies in cases where "the death of a person results from an injury inflicted by the negligence or wrongful act of another." - Kentucky Revised Statute 411.130

There are numerous situations where negligence can result in someone's death, the most common of which are:

  • Medical Malpractice - We trust doctors to take care of us, but sadly many physicians are guilty of negligence, including misdiagnosing illnesses, delayed diagnosis, giving incorrect treatment, and making surgical errors. It is estimated that over 250,000 deaths occur from medical errors every year.
  • Truck Accidents - Semi-trucks and tractor-trailers are capable of causing a tremendous amount of damage, resulting in the deaths of thousands of people in America every year.
  • Product Liability - Defective drugs, medical devices, auto parts, and household products flood the market every year. Sometimes the manufacturer is aware of the defect, but other times the danger does not become known until months or years later, causing thousands of people to suffer.
  • Premises Liability - Unsafe properties account for a number of fatalities every year. The most common is drowning but other causes include lack of security, falls, and injuries to children.
