Why Do You Need a Lawyer?
It is highly recommended to consult an experienced attorney if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault. Even minor accidents can quickly turn complex — and pursuing compensation while you are injured can be a stressful experience. A personal injury lawyer can help you by:
- Handling all the legal work while you focus on recovering from injuries
- Gathering any relevant evidence from your accident
- Dealing with any insurance providers or other liable parties which may not be cooperative
- Negotiate aggressively with liable parties to prevent lowball offers and secure the maximum possible compensation
- Prepare your case to go to trial if a settlement cannot be reached
Ultimately, an attorney can give you peace of time during one of the most stressful times of your life.
What Damages Can I Recover?
Because of so many extenuating circumstances and factors unique to your personal injury case, it can be difficult to determine exactly how much you may recover in your case. However, generally you may be entitled to:
- Any medical bills resulting from your accident
- Continuing medical costs as a result of your injury, such as costs for physical therapy and prescription medicines
- Lost wages
- Lost earning potential – any income lost because you are unable to do your normal work after the accident
- Pain and suffering
Additionally, in cases of gross negligence, you may also be entitled to punitive damages.
What is the Statute of Limitations in Kentucky?
It is important to note that every state has a distinct statute of limitations set for each personal injury case – a timed deadline to file valid personal injury claims. 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.
Because the statute of limitations is much shorter in Kentucky than in other states, it is crucial to contact an attorney as soon as possible following an accident to seek the proper assistance necessary in your claim.
