Some Types of Personal Injury Accidents

Although the majority of all personal injury claims occur as a result of motor vehicle collisions, injuries also result from slip-and-falls, trip-and-falls, bicycle and pedestrian accidents, falling merchandise in stores, construction accidents and industrial accidents. After we’ve been retained by you, and a claim is made on your behalf, you’ll be confident that you’ve retained an experienced, respected and aggressive personal injury law firm hat will successfully represent your interests.
Motor Vehicle Crashes
Although Elsmere is a small city, it’s at the edge of the Cincinnati metropolitan statistical area, so motor vehicle accidents are going to occur in and around Elsmere on a frequent basis, especially during inclement weather. Some of the most common causes of these crashes that we see from our perspective are:
- Distracted driving when talking on a mobile phone, texting or using social media while driving, caring for children or even grooming while driving
- Fatigued or drowsy driving, especially between 11:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m.
- Driving too fast for traffic or weather conditions, even if below the speed limit
- Aggressive driving like quick lane changes without signaling, trying to beat a traffic signal or not yielding the right of way
- Speeding and increasing stopping distance while decreasing time to react
- Drunk driving, drugged driving or a combination of the two
We Know How Insurance Companies Operate
Insurance companies deposit premium checks in their bank accounts, and when a claim arises, they pay out as little as possible as compensation for the claimant’s damages. Sometimes they even deny claims and pay nothing on them. Those are the ways that insurance companies make money. The adjusters who work for these companies are highly trained and experienced, and the defense lawyers who work for these insurers are skilled and shrewd. On that basis, you’ll want your own team of knowledgeable and experienced personal injury lawyers who are aggressive, successful and respected.
No Stone is Left Unturned
Our job is to maximize any proceeds that you might receive from a personal injury settlement or verdict. Once you’ve retained us to represent you in connection with the injuries that you suffered in an accident, we begin collecting all of the evidence surrounding your claim. That evidence typically consists of medical bills, records and reports, verification of lost earnings, witness statements, police and paramedic reports, photographs and even traffic or security camera footage if it exists. Then we carefully analyze all of that evidence, and we incorporate all of it into a settlement package that’s forwarded to the opposing insurer along with our settlement demand.
Damages in a personal injury case
Kentucky law allows people who were injured through the negligence of others to seek a wide range of damages. The damages that we typically pursue in a personal injury case include:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future lost earnings
- Any permanent disfigurement or disability
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of a normal life
- Funeral and medical expenses in the event of a wrongful death
We’ll Get the Insurer’s Attention
After receiving our settlement package and demand, if the opposing insurer is unreasonable or delays your claim, we’ll force the issue and get the insurer’s attention by filing a lawsuit on your behalf. Then we’ll let a judge and a jury of 12 people decide the issues in your case. You’ll be surprised how reasonable many insurance companies get before it becomes trial time, especially when a quality, established and effective law firm has brought the action against their insured person.
