How Can We Help?

When is it appropriate to engage a personal injury attorney in Louisville?

Assume you’re in a car accident one day. This might be due to your job, someone else in your environment, medical treatment you underwent, or simply plain carelessness.

This causes injury or perhaps the wrongful death of a loved one that might keep you out of work for months or perhaps years. Not only do you miss work, but you also have to deal with the medical costs that come with it.

If you find yourself in this scenario, you should get legal advice from a personal injury attorney.

More individuals in the United States are becoming aware of this reality. At the end of 2019, the number of personal injury cases had increased by 97 percent (United States Courts, 2020).

So, how do you know when you need to contact a personal injury attorney? These are a few warning signals.

Car Accidents

Car accidents are one of the most critical occasions to retain the services of a personal injury attorney. The major reason for this is that not everyone has adequate insurance to cover the full extent of certain types of personal injury.

Let’s assume someone hits your automobile and causes a serious enough accident that you break your leg. The driver of the other vehicle, on the other hand, does not have insurance to pay your medical bills.

As a result, you may be responsible for paying for the medical treatments, especially if you just have liability insurance. It can also lead you to miss work, resulting in a potential pay cut and possibly even making you wonder how you’ll put food on the table.

This is where an experienced personal injury attorney may help. In this case, filing a lawsuit against the driver may compel them to pay for your medical costs as well as additional compensation for the period you were unable to work.

Please contact our law firm by phone (502) 585-4025, chat live, or fill out our contact form, and we will review your rights and answer your questions.

An Experienced Lawyer – All the Difference

Knowing your legal rights and getting the benefits you deserve from the liable party can be a daunting task. Your personal injury claim deserves to be handled by a lawyer with extensive experience looking out for your best interests.

Let’s suppose you’re heading out to the organic grocery store for some healthy food after you get off work, and you enter the store through the main entrance. However, there is a spill in the produce section that has yet to be cleaned up.

The floor is slick, and you can’t tell how wet it is since you can’t see it. Then you fall and break your elbow and hurt your back.

This is the sort of injury that may keep someone out of work for several weeks as well as cost them a lot of money in medical bills. But who is going to compensate you for the losses?

The grocery store is accountable for providing a safe place for its guests to walk and shop.  As the “at-fault party” the grocery store is worth millions of dollars with an insurance company and an army of defense attorneys on their side. This company is only going to look out for its own best interests.

While you might like to take them on by yourself, the corporation will have a team of defense attorneys on hand to make sure you don’t get full compensation for your injury.

They may try to scare you into not pursuing compensation if you don’t have a lawyer.

However, with the right legal representation you can confidently enter settlement negotiations and fight for what you deserve!

Negligence

One of the most common causes for personal injury lawsuits is carelessness, although the definition of negligence may be a little hazy. Negligence is defined as the person at blame failing to fulfill an established duty of care owed to the victim.

Return with me to the restaurant. If you were to slip and fall on the floor, the restaurant would have failed to fulfill its responsibility to you.  In that scenario, it is their obligation to offer a safe setting in which you may enjoy a meal. When there is a wet floor, the employees’ job is to clean it up as quickly as possible and properly designate it as a hazardous area.

Employees would have to put up a wet floor notice until they could properly clean it. This would satisfy the duty of care requirement because the staff is informing the visitors that the floor is now wet and that stepping in that location might result in the guest falling.

The restaurant company would not be responsible for a guest’s injuries if they continued to walk right past the wet floor notice and fell nonetheless since the guest disregarded the safety precautions that the restaurant attempted to establish for them.

Negligence is the failure to carry out these basic responsibilities. In other words, you are not performing your duties.
