You should always go to an emergency room after a car accident in which you may have been injured. When you go to an emergency room, you are telling the insurance company that you were hurt, immediately after the accident. Your medical records will help you make a pain and suffering claim down the road.

Is My Claim From The Car Wreck Too Small For You To Deal With Or To Pursue?

There is no personal injury claim that is too small to pursue. If you are hurt, I would rather go through it directly with you and determine what we can do to maximize your personal injury claim. Most people don’t want to seek treatment they don’t need, but with automobile injuries, the medical issues can show up days or weeks later.

Can I Settle The Damage Claim For My Car First Or Do I Have To Wait For My Personal Injury Claim To Be Resolved Before I Can Get My Car Fixed?

You can try to settle your car damage claim as claim as soon as possible. When you are in a car accident, you actually have three claims immediately. You’ve got the damage to your car, your medical bills, and pain and suffering. There is no reason we can’t settle the first claim and get your car either fixed or get you the value for it, and then go on to the second claim.

If The Other Driver Was At Fault Why Do We have To Use My Car Insurance?

The common misconception with motor vehicle law is that the other driver is responsible for all your medical bills. Unfortunately, that’s not true. The state minimum in Kentucky and Indiana is $25,000 per person. Another driver can be at fault for the wreck and lawfully have only $25,000 in insurance coverage, even though he might have given you $70,000 in medical bills. As a personal injury firm attorney acting on your behalf, we I look for uninsured/underinsured coverage, no fault coverage, and Med-Pay coverage, which is designed to make up the difference. I can often find additional sources of coverage to use toward compensating you for the damages.

What If I Can’t Afford A Personal Injury Attorney? How Much Is It Going To Cost Me?

A personal injury attorney doesn’t cost you anything, upfront. As a personal injury attorney, I charge you one-third of what I recover pre-litigation or 40% of whatever goes to a lawsuit.

Will My Car Insurance Premiums Increase If I Make A Personal Injury Claim?

In Kentucky there is a statute that says if you are not responsible for the wreck, the insurance company cannot increase your premiums.
