Tri-State Wrongful Death Attorneys

Negligence Kills. Fight Back to Ensure Accountability.

When a loved one dies because of negligence, the at-fault party should be held legally and monetarily accountable. At Burnside Law, our wrongful death attorneys are dedicated to helping families cope with their loss by not only providing compassionate support in such tough times, but by also providing quality legal representation and acting as a grieving family's advocate for justice.

If you lost a family member or loved one as a result of someone else’s careless, reckless, or intentional actions, our firm can help you fight for the justice you deserve. Call (888) 724-9319 today for a free, no-obligation consultation.

Types of Wrongful Death Cases We Handle

It is important that victims of wrongful death do not allow the negligent party or parties get away with wrongdoing. After all, if these families do not hold negligent parties accountable, who will and at what expense?

At Burnside Law, LLC, we represent wrongful death clients in the following areas:

If you have lost a loved one due to the actions of someone else, we believe it is paramount that you have ample time to grieve. In this way, you can avoid making decisions on your wrongful death case based on emotion alone.

Probate & Your Wrongful Death Case

Our wrongful death clients are usually court-approved representatives of the estate of the deceased. These designations are called Personal Representatives, Administrators, or Executors (Executrix). The probate court (through non-specific probate courts in Kentucky and West Virginia) judge ensures that all prospective beneficiaries understand their rights to any potential recovery. The probate judge also determines whether any potential settlement is fair.

In wrongful death actions where there are non-complicated probate matters, our firm will usually handle the general probate aspects of the case, which includes the proper court filings and approvals. If there is property of the deceased that needs to be transferred in the probate process, we ask that our clients hire a separate probate attorney who primarily handles these issues, as it requires a special type of care. Our Tri-State wrongful death lawyers will work closely with this probate lawyer at all stages of your case.
