Compensation In Wrongful Death Claims

In a Kentucky wrongful death lawsuit, the following damages are available:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Final medical bills
  • Pain and suffering prior to death
  • Loss of care, companionship, guidance and support of the deceased
  • Legal fees

If the act that caused the death was intentional or grossly negligent, punitive damages may also be awarded. Punitive damages are designed to punish a wrongdoer and can significantly increase the total amount of compensation available to surviving family members.
