Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations
It is important for loved ones with a possible wrongful death claim to pursue legal action against the responsible party as soon as possible. In accordance with the statute of limitations outlined in Kentucky law, a wrongful death action must be filed within one year of the date of a person’s death (with limited exceptions). Once the one-year statute of limitations has passed, you will not be able to file a wrongful death suit regardless of the details of your case.
