We’ve All Seen or Been in Accidents
Owensboro has a population pushing 60,000 residents, and it’s in a metropolitan region of over 160,000 people. It was awarded an All-American City status in 2013. Owensboro is in one of the largest metropolitan areas in Kentucky. The area is serviced by U.S. Route 60, so that means the area has its share of accidents on a daily basis. If you or a family member were injured in any kind of an accident, you can contact our offices right away for a free consultation and case evaluation. You’ll be able to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney who will listen to you carefully. Then you’ll be professionally advised of your full range of legal options.

- Failing to maintain a proper interval from the vehicle ahead
- Driving too fast for weather or traffic conditions

Some people start out thinking that they don’t need an attorney to represent them in a personal injury case, but they really don’t have any knowledge or experience in how insurance companies operate. The first thing that they need to be aware of is that insurance companies love cashing premium checks, but they only want to pay out as little as possible by devaluing claims or even pay nothing at all on them. That’s how they make money and pay dividends to their shareholders. On the other hand, our job is to maximize any compensation for your injuries and damages that you might receive from that insurer. Their employees and attorneys are highly trained in insurance defense work, so you’re going to need a team of experienced and aggressive Owensboro legal advocates at your side to prove the evidence of damages in your case. Those damages might include:
- Past and any future medical bills
- Past and any future lost earnings
- Permanent disfigurement, if any
- Permanent disability, if any
- Rehab and recovery expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral and burial costs in a wrongful death case
After you’ve hired our law firm to represent you, and you’ve reached maximum medical improvement, we’ll put all of the evidence in support of your case under the nose of the insurance adjuster who is assigned to your case. All of that evidence will be accompanied by our settlement demand. If that insurance company wants to delay or deny your claim, we’ll let it’s adjusters know how well we know our way around courtrooms in the Davies County Courthouse. Then we’ll ask a jury to render a verdict in your favor on every damages issue that we put before it.
Contact a Owensboro Personal Injury and Car Accident Lawyer
The best thing that you can do after being injured in any accident is to contact us by phone or email and arrange for a free consultation and case review with an experienced and effective personal injury attorney from our offices. An adjuster from the opposing insurance adjuster might contact you before you contact us, “just to see if you’re feeling any better now.” Our best advice is not to answer any questions, and don’t consent to giving any type of a recorded statement either. That’s the purpose of the call. The law doesn’t require you to help the other side prepare its defense, and that insurer only wants to use your own words from your statement against you in the future.
You don’t need to have a single dollar in your pocket to retain us. No legal fees are even due unless we obtain a settlement or verdict for you. Tell that insurer on the other side of the accident that you’ll be calling us right away. It knows who we are, and after hiring us, you’ll never hear from that insurance company again. After any accident, get to an emergency room right away, and then call us for that free consultation and case assessment as soon as possible after that.
