This Is Where People Come To Start Healing

Financial recovery after the loss of a loved one

Losing a beloved family member is incredibly difficult, but it can be even more stressful when the loss is unexpected. If your Kentucky family is currently mourning the loss of a loved one due to the reckless or negligent actions of another person, you likely feel overwhelmed by grief, unforeseen expenses and other complicated issues. 

There is nothing that can bring back your loved one, but there are things that you can do to recover your financial losses and hopefully help your family rebuild and move forward. One of the ways that you can do this is by filing a wrongful death claim.

What you need for a strong wrongful death claim

Simply losing a loved one in an accident is not valid grounds to seek financial compensation through a wrongful death claim. However, you may have a case if the death was the direct or indirect result of the actions of another person. Building a strong case for wrongful death compensation can be complicated, and your claim should include the following elements:

  • The death of an individual caused by negligence or intentional harm
  • Surviving family members suffering financial harm
  • A person acting as a representative of the estate

Not every death is reason to move forward with a civil claim, but you may consider this legal option if the death of your loved one relates to any of the following:

  • Medical malpractice
  • Motor vehicle accident
  • Hazardous or toxic exposure in the workplace
  • Criminal activity

Even if you are currently unsure of the best course of action for you and your family, you always have the right to know your legal options. A smart first step for a grieving family is to seek a complete evaluation of their case in order to better understand the choices available and the most appropriate course of action for you and other surviving relations.

The recovery your family deserves

There is nothing that can bring back your deceased loved one, but there are steps that you can take to help your family establish a strong future. A civil claim may allow you to recover the expenses often associated with an unexpected loss, such as funeral costs, medical bills and loss of income.

This is a difficult time for you and your family, but it is not a process you have to walk through alone. With the support and guidance of an experienced legal professional, you can fight for the recovery your family deserves.
