Don’t wait – time favors the insurance company

Act quickly when filing a claim in Bowling Green and Kentucky. Typically, you have one year from the injury date to file a claim, according to state statute 413.140.

Frequently asked questions and helpful tips about personal injuries

What does a Bowling Green personal injury lawyer do?

A personal injury lawyer helps injured victims by handling the process of recouping some or all of the losses they have suffered during and after their accident – physically, emotionally, and financially. An attorney will build a personal injury case by speaking to witnesses, gathering medical records, obtaining a copy of the police report, 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, we will speak on the victim’s behalf to ensure a fair settlement is reached. If a fair settlement cannot be reached, the attorney will determine if the case needs to go to trial and if so, proceed with a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf.

In this video, Lee Coleman, attorney and founding partner at Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers, discusses how Bowling Green, KY personal injury lawyers assist individuals who have experienced physical or psychological harm due to the negligence of others.

How much do personal injury lawyers cost?

We work on what’s called a contingency fee basis, which means that you don’t ever pay out of pocket – ever. We only get paid if you do.

What is the personal injury claim process?

The personal injury claim process, when handled by an experienced Bowling Green injury claims lawyer, can typically be broken down into five phases.

  1. Notifying all parties about your intent by submitting a claim. This is typically done after all of your damages have been identified and documented.
  2. Engaging in negotiations with the insurance company or other liable parties. The majority of personal injury cases will reach a favorable settlement when working with an injury attorney, but if a fair settlement cannot be reached, then the process continues to litigation.
  3. Filing a lawsuit if settlement talks fail.
  4. Presenting your case in court to establish the defendant’s liability for your damages.
  5. Pursuing trial or alternate resolution methods like mediation or arbitration. For instance, if the insurance company’s offer is unsatisfactory, the judge might suggest mediation to resolve the matter.

How long does a personal injury lawsuit take?

Most cases will settle out of court, and there are a number of advantages to settling an injury claim. However, the time it takes to successfully negotiate a fair settlement will vary from case to case. In order to properly determine how long a claim will take, an experienced Bowling Green personal injury attorney will need to understand the full extent of the victim’s injuries. For this to happen, an injury victim will need to reach a state of maximum recovery – meaning, an injured victim will need to reach a point to where they are healed, or to a point when medically there is nothing more that can be done. Since this timeframe will vary, there is no standard time for how long a personal injury claim will take. It will be based on the victim’s unique circumstances and the complexity of the claim.

How much is my personal injury claim worth?

Once the injury victim has reached a point of maximum recovery, a personal injury lawyer can then determine how much the case is worth and fight for that amount. Settling before the victim reaches a point of maximum recovery could lessen the settlement amount, and as a result, not compensate for the full extent of damages. It’s important to understand that experienced personal injury attorneys will have your best interests in mind as they pursue your claim and will help ensure you receive all the compensation you deserve. Valuing how much a personal injury claim is worth should be handled by a highly experienced attorney, especially in cases of serious or catastrophic injuries.
