What You Need to Know to File a Kentucky Wrongful Death Case After Medical Malpractice

Request Your Free Consultation

The negligence of a doctor, nurse or hospital has taken the life of your loved one. Never again will your loved one do the things that he or she enjoyed, never again will you celebrate a holiday together or share a family milestone, and never again will you be able to turn to your loved one for a smile, comfort or advice. Medical malpractice has cost you, your family, and most of all, your loved one too much.

You May Be Able to File a Kentucky Wrongful Death Case

Now, you are not wondering whether you should file a wrongful death lawsuit or even why you should file such a case. Instead, you simply want to know how to do it. You want to know how to protect your family’s legal rights and how to get the recovery that you deserve.

Wrongful death cases start when someone with standing to sue files a complaint in court. The complaint should outline why the lawsuit is being filed and the recovery sought by the plaintiff, or person filing the case. The complaint must comply with the specific content and style requirements of the court.

For most families, this is (thankfully) the first time that they have to file a wrongful death case and we hope it will be the last. Accordingly, it can be difficult to know whether you have a case and how to right a persuasive complaint that will be accepted by the court.
