Trust the Hughes & Coleman® Injury Lawyers Team to Build a Compelling Case and Help You Recover Wrongful Death Damages

At Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers, we have lots of experience helping clients who have wrongly lost loved ones. We have the resources needed to gather evidence on your behalf and make it clear that someone else was responsible for your loved one’s death.

The three most important components of a wrongful death claim are:

  • Another party owed your loved one a duty of care
  • They failed to uphold that duty and caused or contributed to your loved one’s death
  • You suffered damages because of your loved one’s death

The At-Fault Party Owed Your Loved One a Duty of Care

First, we have to establish a specific duty of care that the at-fault party owed your loved one. The duty depends on how the accident occurred.

In some cases, the duty of care is cut and dry: a doctor treating a patient, for instance. But in other situations, the duty the other party had to your loved one may not be as clear. What if, for example, your loved one died in a car accident? All drivers have an implied duty to practice safe driving and to look out for other motorists and pedestrians.

Your Loved One’s Death Resulted from Another Party’s Negligent Actions

For your wrongful death case to be successful, we must show that the other party behaved negligently (i.e., breached their duty) and caused or contributed to your loved one’s death. We do this by investigating what happened and determining the circumstances that led up to it.

Even if you are not sure if another party was involved, we want to hear from you. In many cases, we have been able to recover damages for clients who, at first, did not realize that someone else was responsible for their loved one’s death.

Because of Your Loved One’s Death, You Incurred Damages

Third, we must establish that you incurred damages because of the death of your loved one. We can often show that our clients suffered a mix of economic losses (e.g., funeral expenses, medical costs) and noneconomic losses (e.g., pain and suffering, loss of guidance and companionship).

Our Wrongful Death Practice Areas in Bowling Green, KY

We want to hear from you if your loved one suffered fatal injuries in an accident. We can help you recover damages for the following types of cases and more:

Car Accidents

If your loved one died in a car accident, we can investigate, collect evidence, and hold the responsible driver liable. We will pursue the driver and their insurer for the damages you deserve.

Medical Malpractice

If your loved one died while under the care of a doctor or health care professional, or during their stay at a hospital, we can investigate and possibly hold the provider or the facility liable.

Medical errors and medical malpractice are a significant problem in Kentucky and all over the country. Our Bowling Green medical malpractice lawyers are dedicated to fighting for victims’ rights.

Premises Liability

If your loved one died in an accident on someone else’s property, we may be able to hold the property owner or manager liable. Kentucky has strict premises liability laws. We can investigate, determine on whose shoulders the responsibility falls, and collect evidence to build a case against that party.

Kentucky's Strict Statute of Limitations on Wrongful Death Lawsuits

After the death of your loved one, you want to make sure you remain eligible to take legal action and recover damages. But Kentucky has one of the nation’s most restrictive statutes of limitations for wrongful death lawsuits. It is only one year, and the clock starts running on the date of death.

Kentucky’s strict statute makes it critical that you take action as soon as possible. The Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers team can help you avoid missing any deadlines that invalidate your case. To schedule a free case evaluation right away, call 800-800-4600.
