Kentucky Personal Injury FAQs You Need To Know
If you or a loved one suffered serious injuries because of another’s negligence, you likely have many questions. I am personal injury attorney Dean Capello. Below are answers to frequently asked questions about auto accident injuries, wrongful death lawsuits and more.
Q: What Types Of Compensation Can I Recover In My Kentucky Auto Accident Injury?
A: You can recover compensation for both monetary and non-monetary damages from a car accident. This may include anything from rental car fees and a replacement vehicle to money for your pain and suffering or the loss of companionship.
Q: What Does Pure Comparative Fault Mean In A Kentucky Auto Accident?
A: In Kentucky’s pure comparative fault system, the court will examine your case to access whether you contributed fault to the accident and to what extent. If you were partly responsible for the accident, the court will reduce the amount of your recovery accordingly.
Q: Which Specific Family Members Can File And Recover For Wrongful Death In Kentucky?
A: Unless appointed as the personal representative of the deceased’s estate, survivors typically do not file the claim. But this does not mean that they do not benefit from a recovery. Instead, the representative will pursue damages on behalf of the estate and its beneficiaries. This may include the widowed spouse and their children or the decedent’s parents if no spouse or children exist.
Q: What Do I Need To Prove To Win My Medical Malpractice Lawsuit In Kentucky?
A: To show that you or your loved one was a victim of medical malpractice, you must first prove that the medical provider owed you a duty of care. Once you can prove that, you must be able to provide evidence that he or she breached this duty and this error caused your injury or led to it. Lastly, you may need to support your claim that the injury resulted in suffering or some other type of damage.
