Why Contact a Personal Injury Attorney - Accidents

If you or one of your loved ones have been involved in an automobile accident in Kentucky, it is important to contact an experienced Kentucky Personal Injury Lawyer.  An experienced attorney can help guide you through the various aspects of a personal injury claim that determine the amount of compensation a person can receive for injuries suffered in the accident.  There are several aspects of a personal injury claim to consider:

 1.      Proving Fault After a Car Accident - ALWAYS get a police report!  The police are trained to record certain details about a collision, including possible determinations of fault based on their expertise in analyzing an accident scene.  The report will also contain information concerning any citations that were issued to the drivers at the crash, as well as, important personal information concerning the drivers, such as insurance information, and passengers.  Make sure to ask the police officer detailed instructions on obtaining a copy of the police report! 

 2.      Dealing with Insurance Companies - Insurance deal with automobile accident claims every single day.  They have developed tactics over the years to persuade individuals injured in an accident to accept low-ball settlements.  A claims representative is often the first person that will contact you.  Remember, every conversation is recorded and everything you say can affect a potential settlement.  Having an experienced attorney on your side can help protect you and your claim.  Do not speak to a claims representative until you have contacted an attorney!

 3.      What damages can I recover? - Compensation for injuries suffered in an automobile accident will vary between different cases.  However, common damages that are often compensated for include:

 Past, Current and Future Medical Expenses

  • Lost Wages
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Loss of Future Earning Capacity
  • Cost of Living with a Disability
  • Loss of Life's Enjoyment
  • Mental Anguish
  • Loss of Consortium (applies to a spouse of an injured party)
