WHO MAY FILE A WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIM?
Depending on the circumstances, a wrongful death lawsuit may be filed against the negligent party responsible for a person’s death. This is a civil action typically made by a close family member such as the surviving spouse or domestic partner and children.

A wrongful death claim may also be made by others including a dependent putative spouse, dependent stepchildren or other dependent minors living in the victim’s household for 180 days prior to the death. Under certain circumstances, a victim’s parents, siblings, nieces and nephews or grandparents may have a claim.
WRONGFUL DEATH IN LEXINGTON
Wrongful death suits can be brought in Kentucky for many different types of accidents, including car accidents, medical malpractice, construction accidents, industrial accidents, product liability cases, and fires. Wrongful death suits are based on the negligence of another person, and therefore there are a number of ways to bring a lawsuit. Car accidents are the most common type of wrongful death lawsuit case since typically one driver is at fault in causing the injury. Many families can also bring action against companies due to defective products their loved ones used which caused their deaths. However, in more industrial neighborhoods, fires, equipment malfunctions, and machinery accidents often lead to wrongful death suits. Each situation has a different legal theory that a personal injury attorney relies on, and therefore it is important to find an experienced Lexington wrongful death attorney who has experience in each case.

Lexington is no different from the rest of Kentucky in the sense that there are a high number of cases brought each year. Higher populations often have a high number of accidental deaths each year, although this is not something we should work to change. Bringing action against the negligent party will work to deter future accidental deaths and will ensure companies and drivers proceed with greater caution in the future.
