Your focus after a car accident should be your recovery, not bills or lost income. Unfortunately, insurance companies and negligent parties don’t always prioritize victims’ health.
Our Covington car accident lawyers refocus your case on justice and healing. We deal with the details while you deal with your injuries by pursuing compensation on your behalf.
What Can You Receive for a Car Accident in Kentucky?
After a crash, you could qualify to receive compensation for:
- Past and future medical treatment
- Rehabilitation care
- Past and future lost income
- Other damages
Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers seek personalized damages that match your needs. As a result, the compensation you receive will reflect the circumstances of your case.
Don’t Disregard Soft Tissue Injuries
Insurance companies tend to downplay injuries that don’t appear on imaging tests. That doesn’t mean soft tissue injuries can’t qualify for compensation. We don’t downplay injuries like:
The Cleveland Clinic reports that 12 to 50 percent of whiplash victims can still experience pain after a year, but the injury may not appear on imaging tests. Other injuries may be more temporary, but their pain is real, as is the recovery time. Johns Hopkins Medicine even reports that some sprains can require surgery.
We can fight for recognition of your soft tissue injuries and the treatment they require, including:
- Diagnostic tests
- Prescription painkillers
- Physical therapy
- Chiropractic care
- Massage therapy
- Alternative options
You don’t have to suffer permanent injury to deserve compensation. Pain is pain, whether from a bruise or a broken leg. You would not have suffered that pain if it weren’t for the other person.
We Also Consider Other Impacts
Repaying your bills and lost wages is only part of your possible compensation after a car accident. You could also qualify for damages like:
- Reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Mental anguish
- Changed quality of life
These are based on a personalized assessment of how the crash impacts your life. For instance, if you suffered nerve damage, keeping you from your hobby of painting or knitting, we can pursue compensation to cover that. The injury can affect your enjoyment of life.
We tailor these damages to each case and victim rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach. The unique losses to your career, relationships, hobbies, and mental equilibrium require unique compensation.

Who Can Pursue Claims and Lawsuits in Kentucky?
Another area in which our car accident lawyers can lend a hand is explaining what type of claim or suit you can pursue in Covington. Ky. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 304.39-060(b) allows you to recover basic compensation through your own insurance.
You could file a claim with the other party’s insurance or pursue a lawsuit if you sustained:
- Serious injuries
- Over $1,000 in medical bills
Victims That Suffer Injuries Can Pursue Compensation After Car Accidents
An insurance company may try to convince you that your injuries are “not that bad.” However, a broken leg alone can cost up to $7,500, according to Healthcare.gov. Additionally, qualifying serious injuries could include:
- Broken bones
- Loss of limb
- Temporary disability
- Permanent disability
- Injuries that affect organs or systems
- Injuries that interfere with daily life
We help determine your path to compensation. Whether you need help communicating with your own insurance company for no-fault coverage or have been seriously injured and want to pursue a lawsuit, we are here for you.
Identifying the Responsible Party in Your Case
While negligence in car accidents can take the form of poor driving decisions—drunk driving, texting while driving, speeding, tailgating—other factors can contribute. Part of our investigation will involve determining all possible liable parties, such as:
- Other drivers
- Auto part manufacturers
- Car designers
- Auto maintenance shops
- Tire manufacturers
- Rideshare companies
- Government entities

How Long Do I Have to Take Legal Action After a Car Accident in Covington?
The statute of limitations may vary depending on the liable party. For instance, the deadline for car accident lawsuits is two years from the date of the accident or your last personal injury protection (PIP) payment under Ky. Rev. Stat. § 304.39-230(6). By contrast, suing the manufacturer of a defective part or a city for poor road maintenance may need to be pursued in a shorter time frame.
Identifying both the liable parties and the deadline to take legal action against them is yet another aspect of our work for you. We worry about investigations and filing paperwork on time while you heal.
