If you or someone close to you is suffering from an injury in Ohio or Kentucky, you deserve legal representation. A personal injury lawyer can examine the details of your situation and explain all of your options for moving forward. You may be entitled to thousands of dollars in compensation, but you will never know if you don’t contact a personal injury lawyer.
Have you suffered due to pain and stress? Have you had to take off time from work? Have you had to take a position at work that pays less than the one you had before the accident due to your injuries? Have you had to have medical attention for your injuries and are therefore facing big medical bills? Are you looking at repair work for your car or other property involved in the accident?
If the answer is yes to any of these questions, a personal injury attorney can fight for your right to compensation for your damages. If your accident was due to the negligence of another and could have been prevented had that person or entity taken reasonable precautions, you deserve justice.
Were you partially responsible?
That’s okay; even if you believe that you may have been partially to blame for the accident, we urge you to not let that stop you from pursuing compensation. Both Ohio and Kentucky have a comparative negligence law that outlines the rules for recovering damages after an accident. This means that, in both of these states, you can still recover compensation for your injuries and other damages even if your negligence contributed to the accident. In Kentucky, you could be 99 percent at fault for the accident and still recover compensation. In Ohio, you can recover compensation if you were 50 percent or less at fault for the accident.
Comparative negligence is most commonly applied to motor vehicle accidents. If you have been injured in a car accident, a personal injury attorney can help you to determine your amount of fault. In fact, it is critical that you do not attempt to determine fault on your own, as there are often other contributing factors of which you are not aware. Motor vehicle accidents are not the only type of accident we handle. Read on about some common personal injury cases we have seen.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents happen every day, and too many people settle for the money that insurance companies offer them. If you have been injured in a car accident that involved another driver, that driver’s insurance company will push you to settle your claim. Their settlement will most likely not cover all of the costs related to your injuries and other damages; contact a personal injury attorney to pursue fair compensation that will cover the full extent of your injuries.
If you were injured on someone else’s property due to unsafe conditions, you may have a premises liability claim. These types of cases are some of the hardest to win, which is why it is critical that you take certain steps following your accident.
Nursing Home Abuse/Neglect
If you learn or suspect that your loved one is experiencing any form of abuse or neglect, step in and take immediate action by reporting to the authorities at the facility, and by contacting an attorney who is experienced in handling nursing home abuse cases.
