Have questions about your personal injury claim? Our personal injury lawyers in louisville are here to answer your questions:

A personal injury lawsuit may seek compensation for several different types of "damages" including the following: lost income, medical treatment, pain and suffering, loss of consortium and mental anguish. The types of damages you may recover will depend largely on the type of injury you sustained and the treatment you received. Contact our firm today to schedule a consultation to discuss your case!

While it's true that you don't always need to hire a lawyer to represent you in court, you will most likely want to hire a professional injury lawyer if you are looking for compensation for a severe or permanent injury, the wrongful death of a loved one, medical malpractice, or any complex cases where it's possible you will be denied a settlement or offered less than the amount you need to cover your medical expenses.

Yes. According to § 413.170 if the individual who was injured was under the age of 18 or has been declared legally incapacitated, a lawsuit may be filed up to 1 year after the individual turns 18 or is no longer considered incapacitated. In addition, § 413.190 states that if the defendant is no longer in the state or makes an effort to hide themselves then the clock is essentially "paused" until the defendant can be located.

If you fail to file your personal injury lawsuit within the specified time frame, you run the risk of the opposing party asking the court to dismiss your case.

Every state's laws are different, but Kentucky's statute of limitations (Kentucky Revised Statutes § 413.140(1)(a)) allows individuals to file a personal injury lawsuit up to 1 year after the date of their accident. This timeline is significantly shorter than other states', so it's important to act immediately to file your claim!

Absolutely not. If your insurance company (or someone else's) has offered you a settlement for your injuries, you should not accept it without first consulting with your injury attorney to ensure that you are receiving maximum compensation for your injuries. You don't want to short-change yourself by accepting an amount that will not cover all of your expenses!
