After being injured in a car crash, you deserve to be treated as an individual, not as a claim number, case file, or statistic. Our Burlington car accident lawyers recognize the uniqueness of your pain, financial struggles, and frustrations. We will fight for you to have your experience recognized through compensation.
Damages That Are Tailored to You
An insurance adjuster will ask standardized questions to determine the lowest amount they can offer you, often calculated by software. At Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers, we ask comprehensive questions to determine what you deserve, taking a personal interest in your case.
We may ask:
- What medical care did you receive, including surgery, imaging tests, or specialist consultations?
- Do you have related costs, such as prescriptions or medical equipment?
- How long is your recovery, and will it involve rehabilitative care?
- Did you lose income while recovering?
- Has the injury left you unable to earn as much as you did before?
- What was the impact on hobbies, relationships, or enjoyment of life?
These can identify specific areas you need compensation, such as pain and suffering, lost freelance income, or home modifications to accommodate medical equipment. Any expense related to your injury could qualify you for damages.
Accessing Care Long After Your Case Is Over
Insurance companies want to close claims fast, but accident injuries can leave lasting marks. Compensation should consider future costs, such as for:
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Speech and language therapy
- Replacement equipment
- At-home care
- Stays at rehabilitation centers
- Alternative therapy
- Chronic pain treatment
Each person’s healing journey has unique challenges. For instance, if you sustained a traumatic brain injury, you might suffer lasting effects and be at increased risk for rehospitalization, according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). We can include these risks in your case value.
Victims of even seemingly minor accidents should consider future expenses. Florida Atlantic University (FAU) has found that low speed, rear-end collisions can still involve high-speed acceleration of the head, causing whiplash. Cleveland Clinic reports that whiplash pain can linger for over a year in 12 to 50 percent of victims.
Whatever you need to navigate your life after this accident, we can fight for it.
Reaching Maximum Medical Improvement
Identifying long-term expenses can be difficult in the first days or weeks after your crash. The doctors may not know your prognosis. However, insurance adjusters might pressure you to accept a settlement during this time.
Given the costs that can emerge later, our car accident attorneys might wait until you reach maximum medical improvement before accepting a settlement from a Burlington insurance company. Once you accept a settlement, you sign away your rights to further compensation. This would keep you from collecting damages after developing complications.
You are allowed to wait, heal, and consider your options before accepting any settlements. What’s more, you have a right to consult legal help from Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers before making a decision.

Gathering Evidence to Bolster Your Claim
In car accident lawsuits, the injured party is responsible for demonstrating that negligence led to their injuries. You don’t have to worry about building your case on your own. We gather:
- Medical records
- Police reports
- Traffic camera footage
- Eyewitness accounts
- Expert testimony
- Accident reconstruction data
The evidence we use will be specific to your accident. For example, you may have been a victim of distracted driving. To pursue a distracted driving case, we may review texting or social media history to prove the negligent party was on their phone. We could also highlight witness testimony and review traffic camera footage.
Exploring Your Options for Compensation
Kentucky is a no-fault state, allowing accident victims to pursue compensation through their own insurance policy regardless of fault. With this coverage, you largely give up your right to sue another party for minor injuries.
However, you can pursue the other driver for your losses if you suffered serious injuries or have medical bills over $1,000 under Ky. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 304.39-060(b). Additionally, drivers can essentially opt out of no-fault coverage, preserving their right to sue for an accident.
Our car accident lawyers can determine how your insurance coverage affects your ability to pursue a lawsuit in Burlington. We can examine several avenues for obtaining the damages for medical costs, lost income, and pain and suffering.
