What Is an Example of a Personal Injury Case in Georgetown, KY?
Car crashes and other types of motor vehicle accident causing serious injuries in Georgetown and throughout the Commonwealth are a significant portion of the claims we handle.
For example, John, an auto worker at the Toyota plant in Georgetown, is headed home on Interstate 75 at the end of his shift. A distracted driver who is looking at sports scores on his cell phone fails to notice the brake lights of John’s car, which has slowed because of traffic congestion ahead. The distracted driver slams into the back of John’s car. John suffers neck and back injuries from the impact of the rear-end collision and is transported by ambulance to the emergency room. John will undergo surgery and miss several months of work at the Toyota plant. He will need intensive physical therapy to address the weakness on one side of his body caused by the neck injury. He has health insurance through his job. Even so, his share of the hospital and physical therapy bills will saddle him with more than $50,000 in medical debt.
John may be legally entitled under Kentucky law to pursue compensation from the distracted driver and the driver’s insurer for medical bills, loss of income, car repairs and other losses associated with the rear-end accident. John should not be burdened with medical bills resulting from a serious accident caused by another motorist. An injury attorney at Becker Law Office can negotiate on John’s behalf with the at-fault driver’s insurance company for a fair settlement and, if necessary, pursue a personal injury lawsuit in Scott County court seeking full compensation.
When Do I File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Georgetown, KY?
Filing a personal injury lawsuit in Georgetown may be appropriate if your attorney cannot obtain reasonable compensation for your injuries from the insurance company representing the at-fault individual or business.
Most people who come to Becker Law Office for legal help would prefer not to file a lawsuit. They would like to have the compensation needed to pay their medical bills and move forward with their lives without going to court.
Our attorneys are skilled negotiators and settle most cases we handle without going to trial. We make every effort to reach an out-of-court settlement as long as it provides just compensation to our injured client. An out-of-court settlement generally puts money in the client’s pocket sooner and avoids the uncertainty of a jury trial.
When the insurance company refuses to enter into a settlement that provides reasonable compensation for your injuries, a personal injury lawsuit may be in order.
