Dedicated Wrongful Death Lawyers Serve Kentucky
Getting grieving families justice for their loss
Oakes Law Firm strongly believes negligent parties must be held responsible if they cause the death of another. We are zealous advocates dedicated to ensuring you receive the maximum compensation possible for your loss — not only to help your family move forward, but also to punish negligent individuals and companies for their actions.
Prompt action is critical to obtaining damages after the death of a family member. Under Kentucky law, you have a limited period of time to file a wrongful death suit. We are well-versed in the courtroom tactics the opposition uses in such trials to attempt to limit their liability, and we can counter their arguments with carefully planned responses designed to protect your rights. Our attorneys work hard to ensure you receive compensation for:
- Loss of love, affection and companionship
- Medical costs
- Funeral expenses
- Mental anguish
- Loss of future earnings
- Loss of protection and guidance
- Benefits lost due to the victim’s death, including medical insurance
We can also help you recover damages for pain and suffering if your family member did not file a personal injury lawsuit prior to their passing.
Have a wealth of knowledge on your side
We have an in-depth understanding of how to construct wrongful death lawsuits in Kentucky courts. We frequently work with private investigators and experts to establish liability, obtain testimonials from witnesses, collect and preserve evidence, and perform a myriad of other tasks to build a case on your behalf.
Our firm has tried wrongful death lawsuits related to:
- Auto accidents
- Truck accidents
- Defective products
- Lack of proper security
- Medical malpractice
- Birth injuries
- Nursing home abuse and neglect
- Slips and falls
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Workplace accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Aviation accidents
While we settle suits prior to going to court if doing so is likely to produce a favorable result, we do not hesitate to litigate cases when necessary.
