Motor Vehicle Accidents
Accidents with injuries involving motor vehicles consist of the majority of personal injury claims and lawsuits that are filed in Kentucky. We see certain behavior patterns that are the causes of those accidents. Five of those driving behaviors involve:
- Distracted driving
- Drowsy driving
- Failing to maintain a proper interval with a vehicle ahead
- Driving too fast for weather or traffic conditions
- Drunk driving, drugged driving or a combination of the two
Preparing Your Case
When you come to us for our help on your personal injury claim, we’ll give you our fullest professional attention. If we’re hired to represent you, we’ll collect all of the evidence in the case. Thorough preparation is critical. While you’re treating for the injuries that you suffered in your accident, we gather all of the evidence like medical bills, records and reports, verification of lost earnings, occurrence and post-occurrence witness statements, photos of the location and conditions or instrumentalities involved and any security or traffic camera footage that tends to document the occurrence.
The Insurance Company on the Other Side
When we make a personal injury claim on your behalf against the person who caused your accident and injuries, his or her insurer opens a claim file and assigns an adjuster to investigate and manage the claim. That adjuster’s job entails paying out as little of the insurer’s money as possible as compensation for your damages. You can expect arguments against liability, damages and your own credibility, especially if you gave that insurer any type of a written or recorded statement.
Our objective is to maximize any sums that you might derive as compensation for your injuries through a settlement or a lawsuit. Here’s how we work toward that.
What We Do With It
When you’ve reached maximum medical improvement, and you’ve been discharged from the care and treatment of your doctors, we connect all of the evidence that we’ve collected on your behalf into a settlement package. That package is sent to the opposing insurer’s adjuster along with our settlement demand. If that doesn’t wake its adjuster or claims manager up, we’ll file suit on your behalf in the Circuit Court of Bourbon County, and we’ll get a trial date. With our preparation, we’re ready to try your case in front of a judge and jury without hesitation. The other side will still be running around and trying to put its defense together when we tell the judge that we’re ready to proceed. Out of the blue, that insurance company who ignored your claim and treated you with utter disdain, often becomes much more reasonable. That’s how some cases settle, but you’ll need us for our meticulous preparation, so we can force the issue.
