On the police report, go to buy crash.com and see if you can print one up. If you can, fax it to the…Read More

Remember that there is criminal law and civil law. Criminal law means the State can assert fines against you and possible make you serve jail time.

Think you have the right motorcycle insurance coverage? According to the Kentucky State Police in 2016, they were 1,841 wrecks involving motorcycles.  While this is only a small percentage of the total number of car wrecks in Kentucky in 2016.  I try to give a lot of legal advice about motorcycle accidents as they tend to involve the most serious…Read More

I filed a lawsuit against what appears to be an uninsured driver this weekend.  The Jefferson County Clerk has set it up so I can file a Complaint, the document that starts a lawsuit electronically from my computer.  However, the filing fee for a lawsuit tends to cost me about $198 for each lawsuit filed with the Jefferson Circuit Court. …Read More
