Corbin is in the southeastern part of Kentucky. It extends into three counties. Those are Whitley, Knox and Laurel. The city’s population is about 7,400 residents, but more than 21,000 people live in the area that consists of Corbin and North Corbin. The area is accessed by Interstate Highway 75, U.S. Highway 25 and the CSX Railroad. It’s nearly a three hour drive southeast from Louisville and about 90 minutes straight south from Lexington. From Corbin, it’s about another 90 minute drive straight south on Interstate 75 to Knoxville, TN.
Damages in Personal Injury Cases
The fact that the Corbin area isn’t heavily populated doesn’t mean that a wide range of accidents with serious injuries don’t occur there. Just some of those can include car, truck or motorcycle crashes, pedestrian and bicycle accidents along with construction and railroad accidents. When those accidents occur as a result of the carelessness and negligence of somebody else, victims might be entitled to compensation for their damages. Those damages can include:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost earnings
- Any permanent disfigurement or disability
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of a normal life
- Funeral and burial costs in cases involving wrongful death
Don’t Damage a Perfectly Good Case
Personal injury law is complicated and unforgiving. Even if you give an opposing insurer a recorded statement or medical authorization, those can be turned into weapons against you in attempts to decrease the value of your claim and cast a shadow over your credibility. Kentucky law doesn’t require you to give a statement or medical authorization. You can irreparably hurt your claim or lawsuit by giving either of them, and a judge isn’t likely to allow you to fix those mistakes. That’s why you should talk with us right away after being injured in any accident in or around Corbin. You have a right to have the attorney of your choice represent you in your personal injury claim or lawsuit. Exercise that right. We don’t make mistakes.
As soon as you retain us to represent you, we start assembling all of the evidence in your claim or lawsuit. That evidence might consist of:
- Medical bills, records and reports
- Statements of eyewitnesses
- Statements of investigating police officers
- Paramedic records
- Photographs of the scene
- Any security or traffic camera footage
We’ll Force a Trial if We Must
Once you reach maximum medical improvement, we submit copies of that evidence to the opposing insurer. If it’s unreasonable or causes undue delays, we’ll file a lawsuit on your behalf and ask a judge and jury to decide the issues. Many personal injury law firms are afraid of trying cases. We’re not afraid of trials. The other side might be, because as trial time approaches, many insurance companies suddenly become incredibly more reasonable.
