Personal Injury Attorney in Bowling Green Kentucky
The Hughes & Coleman team takes great pride in being an active part of the Bowling Green community. We offer unique, compassionate care and service for every personal injury client we represent.
Our team has helped dozens of Bowling Green people who have suffered serious injuries from an accident. Those accident victims almost all went through difficult times, and many faced real physical and financial hardship. Knowing and understanding your options after an injury is extremely important. We encourage you to set up a free consultation with one of our Bowling Green team members for answers to specific questions about your unique legal situation.
Some of our most frequently asked questions are:
What is a personal injury attorney?
A personal injury attorney is a lawyer who has experience with legal cases that arise after an accident. Any time an injury occurs, a personal injury attorney is a valuable asset. Vehicle accidents are the most common causes of personal injury. We help dozens of car accident victims every year in Bowling Green.
Other common injuries we see are slip and fall accidents, workplace injuries, and injuries caused by defective products or prescription drugs. Personal injury cases fall under the category of “tort” law. A tort occurs when someone else takes an action (or sometimes fails to take an action) that injures another person.
What does a personal injury attorney do?
A personal injury attorney helps accident victims by handling the process of recouping some or all of the losses they have suffered during and after their accident. An attorney will build a personal injury case by speaking to witnesses, gathering medical records, reviewing police reports and much more. In some cases, they will work with the victim to ensure they are receiving necessary medical care. When a settlement needs to be negotiated with the insurance company, a personal injury attorney will speak on the victim’s behalf to ensure a fair settlement is reached. If he or she cannot work out a settlement, the attorney will determine if the case needs to go to trial.
When does someone need a personal injury attorney?
After involvement in any type of accident you should speak with a personal injury attorney. They can explain what your legal options are. If an insurance company that is not your own is attempting to contact you after an accident, speak with an attorney first.
Hughes & Coleman offers a free consultation service that allows you to come in and meet with one of our experienced team members right in our Bowling Green office. We will listen to the facts of your accident and determine whether you have a case. If you can’t make it into our office, we can meet with you over the phone or come to you.
How much does a personal injury attorney cost?
Many people find themselves struggling financially after an injury. Serious injuries can mean being physically unable to perform tasks which can lead to extended time off work or the loss of a job. Our office offers clients the ability to work with the firm on a contingency basis. This means that if the case does not result in settlement or compensation for the victim, nothing is owed to the firm. There are no hourly fees, and the firm will handle the costs associated with working on the case. If compensation is awarded to the victim, then the firm will be paid a pre-negotiated percentage of the damages awarded. Any specific questions you may have about this arrangement can be discussed during your free consultation at our Bowling Green office.
What happens at a consultation?
The potential client and the lawyer will interview each other in an initial consultation. The lawyer will evaluate various aspects of the accident and injuries to determine if a case can be made.
Clients should ensure that they are comfortable with the lawyer from both a personal and a professional standpoint. This is a prospective client’s opportunity to ask about the attorney’s experience and qualifications. You’ll be educated about what the process will be like and what to expect. Victims also typically have many “what if” questions. Potential clients are under no obligation to hire the lawyer after a consultation.
