When should you hire a personal injury lawyer in Bowling Green?

Imagine one day you get in an accident. This can be because of work, because of somebody else around you, or even pure negligence.

This results in a personal injury or the wrongful death of a family member that can leave you on the sidelines for months or even years. Then, not only do you miss work, but you get the medical bills attached to it.

If you find yourself in this situation, then you need to speak with a personal injury lawyer for representation. In the United States, more people are realizing this fact, as personal injury cases rose by 97% (United States Courts, 2020) at the end of 2019.

So, how do you know when you need to speak to an accident lawyer? These are some of the signs.

Car Accidents

This can be one of the most essential times to hire a personal injury lawyer. The main reason is that not everyone has the proper insurance to cover certain personal damage.

Let’s say someone crashes into your car, and it results in a bad enough accident to break your neck. However, the driver of the other car does not have insurance to cover your medical expenses.

So, that could leave you potentially stuck with the medical bills, especially if you only have liability insurance yourself. It can also cause you to miss time from your job, which means a potential loss in salary, and maybe even questioning how you will put food on the table.

This is when a personal injury lawyer comes in. Filing a lawsuit against the driver in this situation can force them to pay for your medical bills and perhaps even some extra compensation for your time missed from work.

Slip and Fall

With a lawyer, you will have a stronger chance of going after a large corporation rather than just one person.

For example, let’s say you are going to dinner before catching a movie on Friday night, and you walk through the main dining area to get to your seat. But, there is a spill in the walkway, and a busser has not cleaned it up yet.

The floor is slippery, and you may not see how wet the floor is. Then, you fall, break your elbow, and can barely stand up straight.

The type of injury described above may put someone out of work for several weeks and burden them with a considerable medical expense. But, who do you get to pay for the damages?

The restaurant company is responsible for the actions of its employees. Who has a better chance of compensating you? The busser that makes minimum wage, or the company worth millions of dollars and has an insurance company and an army of defense lawyers backing them up?

When looking at it that way, the choice becomes clear. However, the company will have a team of lawyers at their disposal to deal with a case like yours.

Without a good lawyer, they may try to intimidate you into backing down from seeking compensation. However, with sound legal counsel, you can fight to get what you deserve. Please contact our law firm by phone (270) 782-6000, chat live, or fill out our contact form, and we will review your rights and answer your questions.


Negligence is one of the top reasons personal injury cases are filed, but the definition of negligence can be vague. It is defined as the party at fault having an established duty of care that they did not perform for the victim.

Let’s go back to the restaurant. If you happened to slip and fall on the floor, then the restaurant would have failed to live up to their duty of care.

Their responsibility in that situation is to provide a safe environment for you to enjoy eating a meal. With a wet floor, the responsibility of the employees would be to get it cleaned up as soon as possible and mark it as a hazardous area.

Until the employees can properly clean it, they would have to put up a wet floor sign. This would fulfill the requirement of duty of care because, in this situation, the employee is letting the guests know that the floor is currently wet, and walking in that area can result in the guest falling.

If a guest continued to walk right by the wet floor sign and then fell anyway, the restaurant would not be liable for their injuries because they ignored the safety protocols that the employee tried to provide for them.

Negligence is failing to perform these simple duties, in other words, not doing the job that you are supposed to.

A lawyer can help establish negligence for situations you may never think of, such as this. Call us today at (270) 782-6000.
