Danville Personal Injury Lawyer

In 2001, the Historical Trust for Historic Preservation recognized Danville, Kentucky, as a Great American Main Street Award winner.

Yet, if a tragic accident has caused you serious injury, likely you would like to forget it ever happened.

Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers Seek Damages for Your Injuries

Negative consequences often follow Danville personal injury accidents. You might experience physical injuries, psychological distress, and property damage. Personal injury law actions seek financial compensation for your losses, also called damages, including the following:

Medical expenses

In Kentucky, medical attention is not inexpensive. After a Danville accident, emergency transport, hospital bills, laboratory tests, and surgeries might cost thousands of dollars. Aftercare treatment and prescriptions will only add to your debt.

For those who experience disfigurement or permanent disabilities, the lifetime financial burden is often devastating. You might need continuous nursing care, adaptive devices, and household services to accomplish even basic daily living tasks.

Living in Danville, KY, means you likely have personal injury protection (PIP) insurance. As a no-fault state, the PIP insurance that Kentucky drivers buy covers medical expenses and lost income. The minimum plans will reimburse up to $10,000 per person, per accident. Yet, if your injuries are serious, your medical bills will rapidly exceed your coverage. If this happens, what should you do?

Rather than let your financial situation crush you, turn to our compassionate personal injury attorneys. Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers can secure the compensation you deserve according to Kentucky law. Call us at (800) 800-4600 to schedule a free legal consultation with an experienced Danville personal injury lawyer today.

Repair costs

When most people think of Danville car accidents, they think of broken glass and auto body damage. You might be able to fix your vehicle or buy replacement parts. In other cases, vehicles might be damaged beyond repair.

PIP insurance on its own does not cover damage to your vehicle or someone else’s property in Danville, Kentucky. But if you added collision coverage to your insurance policy, you can use these funds for repair or replacement costs.

Hughes & Coleman’s team of personal injury lawyers can help you understand your policy and ensure you get every penny you are entitled to with your current coverage. Your initial legal consultation with one of our capable Boyle County attorneys is free. Contact us by filling out this brief form or call us at (800) 800-4600 to find out how to maximize your compensation.

Funeral expenses

It is truly sad when a car accident results in death. Fortunately, though, some Kentucky PIP insurance plans pay for funeral expenses. For other accidents, you might need to file a wrongful death claim to recover burial costs.

Noneconomic damages

When Danville accidents result in permanent disabilities or loss of life, the injured person and his or her family suffer immeasurably. Kentucky law does allow Danville victims to seek justice by requiring the at-fault party to pay damages. These compensate for the mental and physical suffering that accompanies preventable accidents.

Hughes & Coleman’s Personal Injury Lawyers Can Handle Your Accident From Start to Finish

Our representation does not start at trial or in a county courthouse. From your first conversation with a Hughes & Coleman personal injury attorney, you can receive thoughtful attention and advice to support you during these difficult times. Our Boyle County law team handles the following personal injury cases.

Birth injuries

For most Danville parents, the birth of a child is a joyous event. But when their baby is injured during delivery or aftercare, that joy may change to anger and sadness. Some birth injuries can cause permanent disabilities, including blindness, paralysis, and even death.

Common birth injuries include:

  • Brain damage
  • Broken bones
  • Cephalohematoma
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Intrapartum asphyxia (also known as HIE)
  • Jaundice
  • Kernicterus
  • Klumpke’s palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Spinal cord injuries

 

At our law firm, an infant’s life is precious. We want you to be able to provide the best care for your child. If your newborn was diagnosed with a birth injury or something seems wrong after delivery, call us at (800) 800-4600 as soon as possible. A Hughes & Coleman personal injury lawyer can investigate to see if your infant’s condition was preventable and whether you are due compensation for your child’s long-term care.

Malpractice and neglect

When a Danville doctor, nurse, or caretaker fails to perform his or her duties according to professional standards, physical and psychological pain can result. Kentucky law allows you to seek legal representation if a medical professional hurt you.

A lawyer can determine if your malpractice claim fits injury law requirements, namely:

  • Failure to diagnose illnesses or conditions, resulting in poor outcomes for the patient’s health
  • Improper treatment for the condition or failure to administer treatment properly
  • Failure to warn patients of known risks of treatment procedures, (e.g. surgeries or drug trials)

 

Danville, Kentucky, falls under statute of limitations deadlines for filing malpractice and neglect claims. Please contact an experienced personal injury attorney at (800) 800-8000 as soon as you learn of your injury. Our Boyle County personal injury phone line is available any time day or night, seven days a week.

Defective products

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission requires Danville businesses to report and recall potentially hazardous products. But products can do a lot of harm if consumers do not hear of recalls or use products before dangerous defects have been discovered.

For instance, 2018 saw some 59,000 emergency room visits associated with nursery products used by children aged less than 5 years. Adults are not immune to product-related injuries either; thousands of accidents occur when products do not function as they should. What should you do if a product injures you or your child in Danville, Kentucky?

Contact a Hughes & Coleman personal injury lawyer to determine if you qualify for legal damages from the product distributor, manufacturer, or designer. Your quick action can save other families from being hurt and help you get quick answers to your questions.

Premises liability accidents

Kentucky property and landowners have a legal responsibility to others who may enter their properties. Premises liability law holds owners accountable for accidents that occur if:

  • They should have anticipated that a specific hazard could cause the accident
  • They failed in maintenance or repairs, thus making injury probable
  • They did not warn visitors of hazardous conditions
  • There is the presence of severe injury or other damages

 

A lawyer can represent you for premises liability accident, including but not limited to:

  • Animal attacks
  • Burns
  • Drownings
  • Electrocutions
  • Elevator or escalator accidents
  • Exposure to toxic substances or fumes
  • Fires
  • Fatalities
  • Loss of life (wrongful death)
  • Slip-and-fall incidents

We will negotiate with insurance companies, settle disputes, and represent you in court when necessary. Call our personal injury team today at (800) 800-4600 to discuss your options.
