"John came to our house and went over the legal part of it thoroughly and quickly, but he always made it more about us. I would recommend them to anybody because they’re going to make sure that you’re protected. It just always felt like we were dealing with family instead of a legal process."

Getting the Legal Perspective on Car Accidents – Audio Interview

Car accident lawyer Darryl Isaacs — The Hammer — sat down to address legal and safety considerations when injured from a car crash in a recent radio episode of “Ask The Hammer,” the podcast exploring the legal matters that matter most. There are many elements at play when knowing what to do after a car accident. Listen to the episode directly below.

Our Wrongful Death Attorneys Evaluate Your Possible Damages

Among the most stressful expenses after a sudden loss is honoring the final wishes of the deceased. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) highlights many of the costs associated with funeral and burial services, such as:

  • Embalming
  • Cremation
  • Casket or urn
  • Burial
  • Funeral service
  • Graveside service
  • Hearse
  • Catering
  • Other final wishes

All of these and other costs associated with your loved one’s funeral can be recovered. Your loved one’s life deserves appropriate recognition, paid for by the responsible party.

Yet funeral costs aren’t the only financial strains covered by compensation:

  • Lost income
  • Medical bills
  • Out-of-pocket expenses

Lost income includes income the deceased would have earned not only from their primary job but also from any side revenue stream. Our personal injury lawyers consult with financial experts to create a comprehensive portrait of the lost financial support. Some losses you suffered may not be listed here but could still be eligible for reimbursement. When we investigate your case, we explore every avenue for damages so you aren’t saddled with unnecessary financial burdens.

Personal Damages

Although the law seems dry and unemotional, it doesn’t neglect to recognize the emotional costs of tragedy. In fact, certain family members can receive certain non-economic damages:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of parental guidance
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of support
  • Loss of affection

For instance, children can receive special consideration for the loss of crucial advice their parents could have provided in the future. Widows and widowers can be compensated for the intimacy and emotional support their spouses gave them.

These are not insignificant consequences. The law, therefore, establishes rules to hold the liable party accountable for them. Your Shepherdsville wrongful death lawyer can help enforce those rules in your case.

Punitive Damages

Kentucky allows grieving families to pursue additional damages designed not to reimburse specific expenses but to punish the perpetrator.

Punitive damages are typically allowed in cases involving willful or gross negligence—accidents that only happened on purpose or due to an extreme lack of caution. Our attorneys can discuss this more in detail with you once we learn more about the accident.

  • Listening to your story
  • Answering your questions
  • Advising you what to do next
  • Investigating the accident scene and all other evidence related to your claim

Our lawyers serving Shepherdsville can also guide you through Kentucky’s laws regarding wrongful death.

The personal representative for the deceased’s estate—either someone named in the will or appointed by the court—can file a lawsuit. Damages are disbursed according to how your family is structured (Ky. Rev. Stat. § 411.130). We can explain these and other rules in easy-to-understand language.

Our Lawyers Investigate Your Case and Identify Negligence

To defend your rights and those of your lost loved one, we compile evidence connecting their passing to someone’s negligent action. That means the other party acted in a way that violated their duty of care and caused preventable death. As a result, the surviving family of the deceased is entitled to damages. Violating duty of care can mean a product manufacturer failed to run adequate safety checks before releasing something on the market.

It could mean a commercial truck driver got behind the wheel while drowsy after driving longer than their regulated hours. Even failing to keep a dog on a leash can constitute a violation of a duty of care. These and other scenarios could be the basis for a wrongful death claim or lawsuit. Our firm could represent your lost loved one if negligence claimed their lives in any of the following situations:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck collisions
  • Motorcycle crashes
  • Bicycle collisions
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Premises liability cases
  • Defective medical devices
  • Defective drugs

Don’t hesitate to ask us about your case, even if you aren’t sure what happened. In fact, our firm can conduct an independent investigation to verify the facts of the accident, unearth evidence, talk to witnesses, and identify the liable party’s negligence.

Our Results

Among the variety of wrongful death accidents our attorneys have handled are some notable cases and recoveries, such as:

  • $10 million for a head-on collision with a semi-truck accident
  • $1.5 million for an accident involving a motorcyclist

What you receive in your case will be based on your own personal losses. However, our case results testify to our willingness to stand up for those who can no longer stand up for themselves.
