Defective Product Cases In Kentucky
When purchasing a product, you have certain rights. As one of the most basic rights, the product must work as advertised and be safe to use as intended. There are many types of product defects and while they often just cause minor annoyance, sometimes they cause grave injuries or even wrongful death.
Cases involving product liability can be complicated. You should contact an attorney as soon as possible. In order to support your claim for a defective product, you should preserve the product and as much information about the product as you can.
Premises Liability Cases In Kentucky
As a general rule, property owners have a legal duty to maintain their property and keep it safe for anyone who enters. In the event that this doesn’t happen and someone is injured, the victim may be entitled to compensation.
Landowners often change their property after an injury occurs, either innocently to prevent further injuries or to hide the dangerous condition and avoid taking responsibility. It is important for you to hire legal counsel promptly so that evidence can be preserved and your rights can be protected.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) About Personal Injury Claims
What should I do if I get into a personal injury accident?
Following an accident, you may be seriously injured and in shock. This makes it difficult to act calmly and strategically. Try your best to accomplish the following, or call someone you trust to help you:
Call the police as soon as possible and file a police report.
Collect all the contact information of every party involved, especially the person you believe is responsible for the wrongdoing.
Take pictures of the scene, your injuries, and anything else you think could be relevant to your claim.
Consult a medical professional if you or anyone else involved is injured.
Discuss your legal options with a personal injury lawyer.
The more evidence you provide your attorney about your incident and your personal injury case, the better.
What should I do if an insurance adjuster contacts me?
You should be cautious when it comes to communications with insurance companies. Despite seeming friendly and sympathetic, it is almost certain that they are coaxing you into making statements that reduce or eliminate the at-fault person’s liability. Please direct the insurance adjuster to contact your attorney if you have one, or your insurance company if you do not have an attorney. The same applies if someone else’s attorney contacts you.
What are the benefits of working with a personal injury lawyer?
Insurance companies prefer to avoid dealing with attorneys because they want the claim to be settled quickly, cheaply, and without too many questions. That is not what is best for you. Working with a personal injury lawyer means working with someone who not only has experience handling insurance claims but who also is committed to protecting your interests.
We will work with you to organize and submit all of the necessary information to make the process of submitting an insurance claim as smooth as possible. Our team will explain to you the complicated terminology and practices of the insurance company to ensure you understand your rights.
How much is my personal injury case worth?
Your case is evaluated based on a number of factors. Medical treatment, medical bills, the nature of your injuries, future medical needs, wage losses, pain and suffering, and the nature of the wrongdoer’s actions are all factors to consider. Our attorneys have decades of experience in handling and evaluating a variety of personal injury claims and we stay up to date on jury verdicts in the area. Our personal injury lawyers will be able to work with you to estimate the value of your case.
How much will a personal injury lawsuit cost me?
A contingency fee arrangement is almost always the basis upon which we take on personal injury cases. In other words, you don’t pay us a fee unless we recover money for you. In the event that we are able to recover money for you, our fee will be a percentage of your recovery.
We do not require you to pay out of pocket to pursue your case with us. This will be discussed during your free initial consultation. Our attorneys will be able to tell you what your chances of success are and whether it is in your best interest to hire us. Our attorneys are happy to answer your questions about our firm, the legal process, and your case.
How long will my personal injury case take?
Personal injury cases can take anywhere from a few months to a few years to resolve. Cases that need to go to trial usually take longer than those that settle. Our goal is to maximize your compensation and get you the justice you deserve. Getting a settlement quickly is not always the best choice. However, we can accommodate your needs if you prefer a faster result due to life circumstances.
Should I sign a medical release for my personal injury?
Any insurance company documents should be reviewed by an attorney before signing. An insurance company may request a medical release or a release of your claims in exchange for some payment. While the insurance company does need to view some records in order to evaluate your claim, the release of that information should be limited.
If you’re not careful, the insurance company can access your entire medical record and use it for any purpose, even if it’s not directly related to your claim.
Your lawyer should verify that signing a final release is appropriate if the insurance company requests it. You cannot ask for reimbursement for any additional treatment or other loss after you sign a final release, even if you feel you signed too early.
How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit?
According to the Kentucky statute of limitations, you have one year from the date the injury occurred to file a personal injury lawsuit. Suits against government agencies or government offices have limitations that vary between two and three years. To ensure that your claim is within the statute of limitations, you must begin the lawsuit as soon as possible. A lawyer can help you meet all the appropriate deadlines for filing the lawsuit.
Don’t Underestimate the Value of Your Claim
Most clients are unaware of the true value of their claim. The at-fault party and their insurance companies love this fact, and they will do everything they can to keep you in the dark. But if you have been hurt by someone else’s negligence, you have the right to claim damages for the full amount of your economic and personal losses. Once we know the details of your case, it will be impossible for them to trick you into settling for less than you deserve.
