What does a personal injury lawyer do?

In this video, founding partner and attorney, Lee Coleman, discusses what a personal injury lawyer does, why it’s important to hire an experienced firm, and how an Elizabethtown personal injury attorney from Hughes & Coleman can help.

A personal injury lawyer can help you in a number of ways. After you’ve sustained an injury that wasn’t your fault, a personal injury attorney helps to ensure that the negligent party is held accountable and that you receive fair compensation for damages, including:

Economic damages

Economic damages are financial losses that you’ve experienced as a result of your injuries and might include:

  • Medical expenses, medical treatment, and medical bills
  • Lost wages (both now and lost wages you may experience in the future)
  • Compensation for property damage
  • Emergency transportation
  • Home modifications to accommodate a disability

Non-economic damages

Non-economic damages are damages that are not financial in nature. They are subjective, but they still impact our clients in significant ways, and they still hold a bearing on your compensation. Non-economic damages may include:

  • Pain and suffering from physical injuries, mental anguish, psychological trauma, and emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Scarring and disfigurement

Punitive damages

Punitive damages can also be awarded by a jury as a way of punishing a defendant for gross negligence.

Without a personal injury lawyer on your side, it is unlikely that the insurance company (either your insurance company or the insurance company of the negligent party) will compensate you fairly, especially for subjective damages like pain and suffering. This is why hiring a law firm after an injury is important. You’ve been injured, it wasn’t your fault, and you deserve fair compensation. By hiring a personal injury lawyer, you can be certain you have someone in your corner who is fighting for your best interests, not some insurance company’s bottom line. A personal injury lawyer can help you walk away from a personal injury claim confidently, knowing that you have done everything possible to benefit you in the legal process from start to finish.

Our personal injury law practice areas

Our Elizabethtown, KY, personal injury lawyers have a diverse set of skills to represent you, whatever your injury case may be.

Auto Accidents

A personal injury claim following a car accident can be challenging to handle on your own. A car accident lawyer from our firm can help navigate each law pertaining to your case to get you every dollar you deserve. Don’t settle for the insurance company’s initial offer. We’ve shown over and over again that we can help our clients obtain maximum compensation for their claims. Car accident injuries are some of the most common personal injury claims that we handle. Whether your car accident occurred on I-65, Mulberry St., the Elizabethtown Bypass, or Dixie Avenue – no matter where you were injured, we can help.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle wrecks can be devastating and often result in catastrophic injuries. If you’ve been injured in a crash that wasn’t your fault, hire a motorcycle accident lawyer who can hold the responsible party accountable and help you get your life back on track.

Truck Accidents

Semi-trucks, commercial trucks, and 18-wheelers can cause severe injuries when they strike a car, another motor vehicle, or a pedestrian. Because these cases are typically very complex, often involving multiple negligent parties, obtaining a truck accident lawyer to handle your personal injury case can make all the difference.

Brain Injury

Many types of personal injuries can result in a wide range of ailments. One of the more common injuries we see in our practice are injuries to the brain, or traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Many times, these injuries, as well as spinal cord injuries, cannot be reversed and require compensation for long-term care. Our brain injury lawyers can help you recover compensation for short-term and long-term needs.

Defective Medical Devices

When a defective medical device causes a personal injury, our firm can help hold the manufacturer and other liable parties accountable. Hire an attorney who has the experience to help you navigate these often difficult situations.

Defective Product

The defective product attorneys at our firm work to identify responsible parties when an injury occurs due to a dangerous product, including those responsible for the product’s design, manufacturing, and distribution.

Drug Injury

If you’ve suffered an injury as a result of a prescription drug, you need a firm with resources to take on big pharma. If you or a family member has suffered as a result of a drug side-effect, or are experiencing harm from a recalled drug, contact us today.

Environmental Injuries

Toxic fumes and other environmental injuries can have long-lasting effects that require an experienced personal injury attorney to account for your needs in the short term and long term.

Fire and Burn Injuries

Burns and fires can result in permanent disfigurement and health problems. Call us right away if you’ve suffered a fire or burn injury as a result of the negligence of a company or individual. The burn injury lawyers on our team can help.

Insurance Dispute

Insurance adjusters are notorious for undervaluing personal injury lawsuit claims. They may even deny your claim altogether. A Kentucky personal injury attorney can help ensure you receive every dollar you’re entitled to. If you’re involved in an insurance dispute following an auto accident or any other type of accident that resulted in an injury, contact our team today.

Medical Malpractice

We represent people who have suffered personal injuries while under the care of a doctor, a hospital, or another medical provider. Medical malpractice cases are extremely complex, necessitating the services of an experienced law firm to advocate for those who have received subpar or inadequate care.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Our slip-and-fall accident attorneys have extensive experience holding negligent businesses and property owners accountable for allowing dangerous conditions to exist on their property.

Nursing Home Abuse

We safeguard our most vulnerable citizens against abuse and neglect. Nursing homes and caregivers are responsible for ensuring that our elders are cared for and respected.

Amusement Park and Water Park Injuries

If you’ve been injured at the local water park or any amusement park, our Kentucky personal injury lawyers can ensure you are compensated for your injuries.
