I wanted to give you a tip generally about all areas of the law.  All areas of the law focus on what you can prove!  Unless we are dealing with expert testimony (e.g. doctors, accident reconstructionist, etc.), the law really is not concerned about theories or opinions.  As a result, documentation, in all areas of the law, is a huge essential to…Read More

I thought I would share with you some interesting points that I learned when I spoke to my own automobile insurance company about adding an elderly driver. In short, my father is going to be staying with me for a while.  So the question was whether he should keep his own car insurance or rather, eliminate his car insurance and…Read More

Someone brought up a good point to me recently regarding personal injury settlements. In short, most personal injury settlements are inclusive of the medical bills or medical liens. For Kentucky car wrecks, one of the few exceptions is Kentucky no-fault carriers. Settlements are generally exclusive of the no-fault lien which means that they do not include the bills paid by…Read More

In twenty years of practicing law, there have only been two times wherein I have viewed photographs from a car wreck that have truly grossed me out.  The second time was this week and was from a client whose open wound took about 9 months to heal.  While the at-fault driver only had the state minimum of $25,000 per person…Read More

I just got out of a deposition this morning and the client did pretty well. However, defense counsel pulled out and questioned her about 9 posts from Facebook that had nothing to do with her injuries or the lawsuit. Basically, there were a lot of inferences based upon events or statements that someone would not have normally related to the…Read More

I am handling a case that I will blog more about later.  However, for the moment, let me tell you that my client was hit by a car while he was walking in a crosswalk and there appears to be limited insurance coverage on the at-fault driver. My client has been hospitalized at the University of Louisville Hospital since the…Read More

I signed up a client recently that was hit by a car while riding a motor scooter. After we met and I began to represent him as his lawyer, he solicited a personal injury settlement from the insurance carrier for the at-fault driver. He did not inform me of this and it escapes me as to why he bothered to…Read More

I am going to make this blog short as I have preached about this subject a 100 times over. However, I still believe that this is one of the most important issues facing any personal injury claim stemming from a car wreck or a motorcycle accident. In short, I settled a personal injury claim this week for the maximum insurance…Read More

Hmm? Good question.   Nine of ten times I have to tell a client “No!”  Today, to my own surprise, I had to suggest to a client that she accept an early settlement of her personal injury claim. I represented this lady for another car wreck about six months back and she was just involved in a second car wreck over…Read More

I had a phone call the other day in regard to a motorcycle wreck that happened in Corydon, Indiana.  While I had about a thirty-minute phone call with the injured motorcyclist, I have not signed him up as a client yet. Nevertheless, I wanted to share with you some of the issues that are immediately present for motorcycle accidents, or…Read More
