How Do Personal Injuries Commonly Occur?

Another person's negligence can cause you to suffer injuries in many ways. Often, personal injuries occur in:

  • Slip-and-falls
  • Dog bites
  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle crashes
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
  • Workplace injuries
  • Construction accidents
  • Wrongful death

Kentucky law gives you the opportunity to recover a payout to cover your bills and other losses in any of these situations. By filing an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit, you can pursue compensation from the at-fault party. Knowing your family is on solid financial footing and you can afford the treatment you need — including ongoing care — is key in reducing stress and being able to focus on your health.

We can help you go after the money you need to cover your medical bills, lost wages and other losses after an accident in Covington or Newport. We can help you identify the liable party or parties and hold them responsible for your damages. Call us today at 513-655-5089 for a free, no-obligation review of your case.

How Do Personal Injury Cases In Northern Kentucky Work?

The first step in recovering compensation for injuries suffered in Newport, Covington or elsewhere in Northern Kentucky is identifying who is responsible for your accident. Once you know who is legally liable for your injuries, you will file a claim based on that party's applicable insurance policy. Depending on the type of accident, this may be a Kentucky auto insurance policy, a homeowners insurance policy or even a business liability policy.

Before you do this — and to ensure that you find all potentially responsible parties — you need to speak with a Northern Kentucky injury attorney. Our attorneys understand and can help you prove the following components of negligence:

  • The liable party had a duty to keep you safe.
  • It failed to uphold this responsibility.
  • You suffered injuries as a result.

Proving negligence requires presenting evidence to show exactly how your injuries occurred and why. Common evidence in these cases often includes:

  • Reports from the local police department or Kentucky State Police

  • Eyewitness statements
  • Pictures and video of the accident, the accident scene, and any damages
  • Your medical records and other information from your doctor
  • Expert witness testimony
  • Accident reconstruction, especially in car accidents

How Much Can I Recover For My Accident Injuries?

It is impossible to put an estimated value on your case without meeting with one of our Northern Kentucky personal injury lawyers. The negligence laws in Kentucky let you collect compensation for almost any financial losses or accident-related costs, as well as emotional damages after an accident. To determine the value of your claim, we need to calculate your economic damages, including:

  • Medical bills and ongoing care
  • Rehabilitation and therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Out-of-pocket expenses, such as parking at St. Elizabeth or another medical center

We also need to look at any emotional or psychological damages you suffered, often referred to as pain and suffering. This type of payout is often several times the compensation for economic losses.

Imagine you suffered a fall at dinner before an event at the Levee. Your doctor diagnoses you with a torn ligament in your knee and you require surgery. Because you must be on your feet at work, you cannot return to work for eight weeks. We add up the cost of your medical treatment, lost wages and other costs and estimate your pain and suffering. Only then can we request the proper amount from the owners of the property where you suffered injuries.

Do I Need A Lawyer For My Kentucky Personal Injury Claim?

Personal injury claims often become more complex than they seem to be. Because insurance companies are businesses, they will do whatever they can to pay you as little as possible. To do so, the insurance company might:

  • Deny your claim
  • Say you contributed to your injuries
  • Claim that your injuries existed before the accident
  • Offer you a lowball settlement hoping you will accept before you know the full prognosis of your injuries

This is why you need a skilled Northern Kentucky injury attorney on your side. We can calculate the value of your case, file your claim and protect you from the insurance companies. We will make sure you meet the short one-year statute of limitations in these cases and get the compensation you deserve.

Even if you have already filed a claim in your case, you should call and talk to one of our Northern Kentucky injury lawyers about your settlement. This is important before you sign any agreement with the insurance company. Remember, once you sign an agreement, you lose the right to file a lawsuit for additional compensation.
