Compassionately Assisting Families After A Fatal Accident

There are few things more tragic than losing a loved one to a fatal accident. These incidents create emotional heartache and financial hardship. If another person's negligence contributed to the fatal accident, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit against that party.

At Adams Legal Group, our team has successfully recovered damages for decedents' loved ones for over 20 years. We take a thoughtful approach when investigating the details of your case to determine whether it is appropriate to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. Our lawyer will discuss what legal options are available to you and will work closely with you every step of the way.

We understand that no sum of money makes up for the loss of a loved one. However, recovering just compensation can help ease the financial burdens resulting from the accident and make moving forward from the incident easier for you.

Who Is Eligible To Receive Damages From A Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

While Kentucky law allows anyone to file a wrongful death lawsuit, there are clear rules outlining who is eligible to receive damages. If the decedent left behind children and a surviving spouse, the children and surviving spouse will split the damages 50-50.

If the decedent leaves a surviving spouse but no children, the surviving spouse would receive all of the damages. The surviving children would receive 100 percent of the damages if the decedent did not leave behind a surviving spouse. If there is no surviving spouse or children, Kentucky law outlines a clear hierarchy for who can receive compensation from a wrongful death case.

We have worked closely with decedents' loved ones to recover damages from wrongful death cases in an efficient manner. Our mission is to reduce the stress you feel after the accident and to begin reducing the financial burdens you are facing as quickly as possible.
