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 Brankamp Law, we represent wrongful death clients in the following areas:
- Serious motor vehicle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Trucking wrecks
- Pedestrian accidents
- Nursing home abuse/neglect
- Medical malpractice
- Dram shop (bar over-serves an at-fault party, causing death)
- Premises liability (someone dies because another did not keep their property safe)
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.
Our Wrongful Death Attorneys Can Help
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 wrongful death lawyers will work closely with this probate lawyer at all stages of your case.

I would definitely hire Jared again in the future. Thank you Mr. Brankamp.
Mr. Brankamp turned a very scary, unknown legal matter into a situation we could calmly navigate through. He was polite but frank, fact finding yet empathetic. He really made us feel like he had our daughter's best interest. Even during a pandemic when we could not meet face to face, he was easy to communicate with and always kept us in the loop on what was happening. I would definitely hire Jared again in the future. Thank you Mr. Brankamp.- Elisha Bound
