Nicholasville is smack dab in the heart of Kentucky’s Bluegrass region in Jessamine County. It’s located on the outskirts of Lexington, and it’s about a 30 minute ride northbound on U.S. Highway 27 into the city. With a population estimated to be more than 30,000, it’s about the 10th largest city in Kentucky. From the north and south, the city is accessed by U.S. Highway 27, and from the east and west, it’s reached on State Highway 169. It’s about 82 miles to Louisville from Nicholasville, and without any traffic delays that trip takes about 90 minutes. The area in and around Nicholasville is in one of the fastest growing areas of Kentucky. The city is in the Lexington-Fayette, KY Statistical Area with an overall population of more than 700,000.
Common Accidents With Injuries
Given the rapid growth of Nicholasville coupled with the statistical area that it’s in, accidents are going to happen, and people are going to suffer injuries. They’re not just going to be car accidents either. Our law firm has represented clients in and around Nicholasville for injuries suffered in accidents like falls, pedestrian and bicycle accidents, construction, industrial and farming accidents.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Coupled with Nicholasville’s growth are traffic accidents with injuries involving both commercial and private vehicles. Being an established personal injury law firm with a large client base, we see certain motor vehicle crashes more than others. Some of the most common causes of those crashes are tied into:
- Distracted driving when a driver is texting or otherwise using a cellular device, an infotainment center, attending to personal grooming or attending to children in the vehicle
- Drowsy or groggy driving that leads to slow reaction time or even falling asleep at the wheel
- Driving too fast for weather or traffic conditions on the roadway
- Following a vehicle ahead too closely to have time to slow down or stop to avoid an accident
- Drunk driving, drugged driving or a combination of the two
The Job of the Claims Adjuster
After an accident with injuries in or around Nicholasville has been reported to the insurer of the liable driver, a file is opened at a regional claim office, and an adjuster is assigned to investigate and manage the claim. Remember the fact that the adjuster works for the insurer of the person who caused your accident and injuries. That person is highly trained and experienced, and his or her job is to pay out as little as possible on bodily injury claims. The adjuster on your claim might sound friendly and concerned, but his or her goal is to devalue your claim by clouding liability and damages issues while also bringing your credibility into question.
As opposed to the adjuster’s goal, our goal is to maximize any compensation that the opposing insurer might pay you for your injuries. We start on that objective as soon as you retain us. We’ll collect all possible evidence on the issue of liability and damages like witness statements, photos of the location and instrumentalities involved in the occurrence, any security or traffic cam footage of the accident and any medical bills, records or reports in connection with the injuries that you suffered.
We Can Force the Issue
After you’ve reached maximum medical improvement, and you’ve been discharged from your doctor’s care, we put together a settlement package and forward it to the adjuster assigned to your case along with our settlement demand. We don’t want your case file sitting around our offices collecting dust. If the opposing insurer delays settling your case or is otherwise unreasonable, we have an alternative. We’ll force the issue by filing a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf in the Circuit Court of Jessamine County, and we’ll ask that a judge and jury decide all of the evidence and damages in your case. Those damages typically include:
- Past medical bills and any other medical bills reasonably expected to be lost in the future
- Earnings lost and any additional earnings reasonably expected to be lost in the future
- Any permanent disfigurement
- Any permanent disability
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of a normal life
