Murray can be found in the far southwestern part of Kentucky in Calloway County. With a population estimated to be more than 19,000, it’s the home of Murray State University. It’s a Division I NCAA school with football and basketball programs that other universities envy. The City of Murray is serviced by the Murray-Calloway County Airport, the KWT Railway and numerous roadways that include U.S. Highway 641 and Kentucky Highways 80, 94 and 121.
Common Murray Accidents
Given the volume of activity in and around Murray, accidents are going to happen. Aside from motor vehicle accidents, our personal injury law firm represents clients in falls in businesses and homes, pedestrian, bicycle and boating accidents, construction, industrial and railroad accidents and even animal attacks.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
In Murray and the surrounding area, U.S. Highway 641 is heavily traveled by up to 25,000 vehicles a day. More than 12,000 more travel Kentucky Highway 121 on a daily basis. With that kind of traffic, accidents and injuries involving cars, trucks and motorcycles are bound to occur. As personal injury lawyers, we see certain types of injuries more often than others. The most severe injuries can involve:
- Traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries
- Multiple fractures
- Organ damage
- Joint and cartilage damage
- Spinal vertebrae, disc and nerve damage
The Insurance Adjuster’s Goal
After an accident with injuries is called into an insurance company, a claim file is opened, and an adjuster is assigned to the claim to investigate and manage it. Bodily injury adjusters are highly trained. It’s an adjuster’s job to represent the interests of the insurer by paying out as little money as possible as compensation for the claimant’s injuries. That might be accomplished through devaluing a claim by whittling away at liability, credibility and damages.
Being dedicated personal injury lawyers, our goal is to maximize any compensation that our clients might receive for their injuries. You deserve a highly trained and experienced team on your side of the case too. We’re not going to let that insurance company avoid liability issues, disparage your credibility or devalue your claim. We’ll carefully consider all of the evidence and damages in your case. Those damages typically consist of:
- Past medical bills and medical bills reasonably expected to be incurred in the future
- Past lost earnings and lost earnings reasonably expected to be lost in the future
- Any permanent disfigurement
- Any permanent disability
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of a normal life
How We Get Started
As soon as we enter into a retainer agreement with you, we begin collecting all of the evidence in your case. That ordinarily consists of medical bills, medical records and reports, occurrence and post-occurrence witness statements, photographs, security or traffic camera footage and possibly even the disposition of any traffic or other citations issued against an offender.
Putting It All Together
While you’re recovering from your injuries, we’re collecting and examining all of this evidence. After you’ve reached maximum medical improvement, and you’ve been released by your doctors, we organize copies of all of that evidence and present it to the opposing insurer along with our settlement demand. If the insurer ignores our settlement demand or is otherwise unreasonable, we have an alternative. We’ll force the issue and file suit in the Circuit Court of Calloway County.
The Attitude Change
Once a trial date is set, it’s not unusual to see insurance companies become increasingly more reasonable. That’s why only a small percentage of the personal injury lawsuits that are filed go to trial. The overwhelming majority of them ultimately settle. If a trial is necessary, you have a highly prepared, dedicated and experienced personal injury law firm at your side.
