Need An Injury Attorney Kentucky
www.needaninjuryattorneykentucky.com is a client focused personal injury law firm specializing in car accidents. Our goal is to see our clients heal after tragic incidents and we know financial compensation is one step on that road. Money can not fix all damages but it is sometimes the help people need for necessary medical treatments and to get by for daily living until are able to work again. Some injuries are so drastic that the victim can no longer retain a position of employment. Sometimes relying on compensation from a lawsuit is their only option. Our hearts go out to these victims and we want to let you know we are here to help.
There is a lot to process after any car accident and seeking emergency medical attention should be the primary concern. Once you are ready we urge you to consult with an attorney as soon as possible as the statute of limitations for seeking compensation after an accident or wrongful death are shorter in Kentucky than most other states. Essentially you have one year to recover monetary compensation following the incident. Time is also of the essence as memories fade and evidence washes away quickly.
All attorneys at www.needaninjuryattorneykentucky.com are well-versed in both federal and Kentucky law as it applies to accidents and compensation. We keep up to date with the changes in policies and even with the new technologies. Our first step is to assess the unique situations of your claim. Whether you were injured in a typical car accident involving two or more personal drivers or a commercial vehicle accident we can help. Commercial vehicle accidents come in many forms including trucks, buses, and rideshare companies such as Uber or Lyft. There is currently a “No-Fault” policy option in Kentucky whereby the victim is required to request compensation through their own personal insurance first. We know that this can rarely be enough to cover all the fees associated with the accident. When another party was negligent there are options. With commercial vehicle accidents, we can help seek compensation from the company’s workers’ compensation policy and even the company themselves.
As we listen to your case, we can see if there is a need to support your claim. If so, we can review the medical and police reports, investigate the scene of the accident and the damage to the vehicles, and take statements from witnesses. All of this is to build a strong case of evidence that supports your claim that the other party was negligent for the accident. We can speak on your behalf with the associated parties and file the paperwork for your claim as soon as you provide us with your initial statement. We must caution you not to speak to another insurance company that does work for you before consulting with us. We have the knowledge and experience to know exactly what to say to the parties. Slipping on your words can significantly reduce the amount of your compensation or completely deny it.
We work for you and we have your best interests at mind. Private parties, government officials, and insurers tend to delay on payment and correspondence when claims are brought forth by individuals. The quickest way to get them to respond and take proper action is to have an attorney communicate on your behalf. Insurance companies fear litigation. With solid evidence, we will take them to court to get you the compensation you deserve.
Pedestrian and bicycle accidents seem like they should be open and shut claims as they are no match for a car upon impact. However, insurance companies will look for any opportunity to blame anyone but the driver. We think this is completely wrong and we can help in these situations as well. Pedestrians and cyclists rarely have a form of insurance of their own to turn to for compensation following an accident. Even in a hit and run case, there are potential ways to help. It is unsafe to track down the negligent party of a hit and run accident on your own. While the law enforcement authorities may be able to help bring forth criminal charges, a guilty conviction does little to help the victim restore their lives.
If a family member of yours has been involved in any of the above-listed accidents and it has turned fatal then you may have a wrongful death claim on your hands. Wrongful death claims have the same statute of limitations as accidents in Kentucky, that being one year after the incident. When it comes to medical malpractice it can apply to the diagnoses that caused your loved one to die so contacting an attorney quickly is essential.
While we believe driving under the influence is irresponsible and dangerous, our experience has taught us that DUI charges and arrests are not always correct. This country holds a high regard to those charged with a crime as being innocent until proven guilty. We have seen many chemical tests that were used as evidence turn out to produce false positives and often times the police violated the Constitutional rights of our clients. If you are being pulled over then know that you have the right not to submit to a field sobriety test and that you do not have speak until your attorney is present. If you or a family member have been charged with a DUI then we can help. We will work with the courts to allow to keep your driving privileges during the proceedings so you can continue with your daily life. We can handle most of the court work until you are absolutely needed to be present and we can prepare you on what to say.
