How the Hughes & Coleman® Injury Lawyers Team Builds Your Wrongful Death Case

The Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers team has recovered damages for many wrongful death clients. We know what it takes to build a successful case. Our team will use this knowledge along with our extensive network of resources to build a compelling case that shows another party’s actions caused or contributed to your loved one’s death.

Here are the three main components of a successful wrongful death case:

  • The party in question owed your loved one a duty of care.
  • The party in question breached that duty and caused or contributed to your loved one’s death.
  • You incurred economic or noneconomic damages because of your loved one’s death.

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

The at-fault party must have owed your loved one a duty of care. This duty depends on how the accident occurred. For example, drivers owe all other road users a duty to drive safely and prevent harm. Doctors owe their patients a duty to provide medical treatment that meets their industry’s standard of care.

Another Party’s Negligence Caused or Contributed to Your Loved One’s Death

Next, we must show that the at-fault party behaved negligently and caused or contributed to your loved one’s death. For example, the at-fault party answered a text while driving and hit your loved one as he or she was crossing the street. This is an example of negligence that could make the at-fault party liable for your loved one’s death.

You Incurred Economic or Noneconomic Losses from Your Loved One’s Death

Finally, we must tie the death of your loved one to specific losses you suffered. These can be economic losses, meaning they involve actual monetary depletion, or non economic losses, which include things like pain and suffering, loss of companionship, and loss of guidance.

Our team will fight to build the most robust case possible and hold the responsible party liable. To schedule a free case evaluation, call us today at 800-800-4600.

Count on Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers to Handle Any Wrongful Death Situation

We handle all types of wrongful death cases. No matter how your loved one’s death occurred, we want to evaluate your case and see if we can help.

Our Elizabethtown wrongful death lawyers have helped clients recover damages for the following and more:

Motor Vehicle Accidents

If your loved one died in a car, truck, or SUV accident, we can help you recover compensation. We will collect evidence to show that the other driver was responsible, and we will aggressively go after their insurer for damages.

Medical Malpractice

We have helped many clients who lost loved ones due to medical malpractice. If you believe a doctor, health care provider, or medical facility may have been at fault for your loved one’s death, we can investigate and let you know if you have a case for wrongful death by medical malpractice. If you do, we can help you recover damages.

Defective Products

If a defective or damaged product killed your loved one, we can hold the manufacturer liable. In some cases, we can recover damages even without showing that the manufacturer displayed negligence.

Kentucky Allows a Very Short Time for Wrongful Death Lawsuits

In Kentucky, one of the biggest obstacles that can hold a victim back from recovering damages is the statute of limitations. Our state follows one of the most restrictive statutes of limitations in the nation. From the date of your loved one’s death, you have only one year to take legal action. If you let that time limit expire, it does not matter how strong your case is; you will not be able to recover damages.

Do not risk losing the compensation you deserve because you did not take action in time. Call the Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers team today at 800-800-4600.
