Wrongful Death Lawyer
If your loved one has died due to the negligence, carelessness, or wrongful act of another, our law firm will immediately travel to you and help you begin putting your life back together. We understand how devastating a wrongful death can be to a spouse, parent or child. If a fatal collision or other preventable death has torn your family apart, you need an experienced wrongful death lawyer. For nearly 40 years, Flora Templeton Stuart has represented victims of wrongful death throughout Kentucky, Tennessee, and the nation.
What is commonly referred to as a “wrongful death” is actually two actions in Kentucky. First, the administrator of the estate may file a survivor’s action which is a claim brought on behalf of the deceased person for his or her injuries. The estate administrator can prosecute the same claims and damages (such as lost wages, pain and suffering, etc.) as the deceased person would have a right to if he or she had survived. Any recovery in a survivor’s action goes to the estate. Second, Kentucky also allows certain family members to file a wrongful death claim and receive damages for loss of consortium (companionship). Flora and her staff will assist with securing any needed court appointments in wrongful death cases at no additional charge.
Obtaining a Fair Settlement
At the Law Firm of Flora Templeton Stuart, not only will you meet and consult with a wrongful death attorney in the initial visit, you can be assured that personal injury lawyer Flora Templeton Stuart will be working on your case. You can call us twenty-four hours a day/seven days a week. Your first consultation is free and we are not paid unless you recover in your preventable death case.
We fight for our clients to recover all the damages they deserve due to a fatal collision or other catastrophic injury which may be caused by a drunk driver, commercial truck, auto wreck, motorcycle accident, traumatic brain injury, or other personal injury. You only have a limited amount of time to file a wrongful death claim, so contact a fatal wreck attorney immediately to begin investigating your case.
When pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit after a fatal accident, our wrongful death attorneys will perform a thorough investigation. We will gather phone numbers and names of witnesses, obtain medical records, collect accident reports, take photographs of the scene, and work to preserve the vehicles and other evidence. Early investigation is vital to a wrongful death case because it gives us the best chance of preserving all evidence needed to make a successful claim.
In a preventable death case, our fatal accident lawyers will fight to collect all the damages you deserve to include: funeral expenses, pain and suffering, future income loss, medical bills, or consortium claims for spouses and children. In certain cases, we can even help you recover punitive damages against the at-fault party when he or she has been grossly negligent or drunk.
Do not discuss your case with the insurance company or accept any form of compensation before consulting a wrongful death attorney. If you accept compensation now, you may be giving up your right to file additional claims in the future. Our wrongful death lawyers are here to help you get the compensation you deserve.
