When looking at this list of ways that people can be injured, we can see that there may be many liable parties. Anytime the actions of another person, group of people, business, or entity causes harm to another person, they can be held liable for any injuries and damages.
In general, when a duty of care is owed to another person, and that duty is breached, the party who breached their duty will be held liable. For example, all drivers owe a duty of care to those around them. If a driver chooses to get behind the wheel while intoxicated, they are essentially breaching their duty and can be held liable for any injuries they cause.
Most common injuries we help clients handle
There are various types of injuries that can occur due to the careless or negligent actions of another person. This can include physical injuries as well as emotional and psychological injuries. Our Covington personal injury lawyers regularly help clients who have sustained the following:

Victims of serious personal injuries often sustain emotional and psychological trauma as well. Injury victims could suffer from severe anxiety, heightened levels of stress, insomnia, fear, and more. It is not uncommon for personal injury victims to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of what has happened to them.
What is the time limit to file a personal injury claim?
Every state is responsible for setting a statute of limitations (time limits) that victims have to file a personal injury claim against a negligent party. Kentucky Revised Statutes section 413.140(1)(a) sets a one-year deadline to file a claim related to negligence. It is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible as there are specific statute of limitations for each type of case which sets time limitations in which to file a lawsuit or your potential case will be forever barred. Please contact the attorneys at Hendy Johnson Vaughn Emery to discuss your potential case and the applicable statute of limitations.
