Free Review of Your Auto Insurance Policy
One of the most important ways you can protect yourself, your family and to prepare for the unexpected is by having adequate insurance coverage policies in place for all vehicles and drivers in your household. Getting your insurance coverage right often makes a critical difference in how you are able to collect compensation for expenses after an injury accident.
During your policy review, we’ll go over your current coverage and give industry recommendations specific to you. This includes looking at policies like uninsured motorist (UM) and underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage, which often prove crucial in paying out damages in accident cases where other drivers carry little or no car insurance.
Isaacs and Isaacs is providing a free review of your current insurance policies. To get a free review of your Auto Insurance Policy, schedule your appointment with us by calling 800-800-8888 or fill out our appointment form below.

When you or someone you love gets badly injured as a result of someone else’s negligence behind the wheel of a car or semi-truck, the physical, emotional and financial toll it takes can be devastating. When a death occurs in these circumstances, the loss may leave many feeling hopeless.
In these situations, seeking justice for yourself and loved ones, holding wrongdoers accountable for their actions and demanding payments for harm done can provide a new path forward. That is the important road of filing and winning a settlement in a personal injury lawsuit.
Money Damages We Fight For
When you have been harmed, our attorneys will demand payment of damages for your injuries and for the loss of a loved one. The most significant damages we pursue for you include:
- Medical Expenses – Don’t let medical bills sink you. We’ll demand payments for hospitalization, surgeries, ongoing rehabilitation, future treatment and more.
- Lost Wages – It’s very typical to miss out on work and income when recovering from injuries related to car, truck and motorcycle accidents. We’ll demand payments for wages you’ve missed out on.
- Lost Future Income – Sometimes injuries are so bad that you can’t continue with your career. We step in and demand payments for these circumstances so that your working future gets looked after.
- Pain and Suffering – Accidents can lead to emotional despair, PTSD and ongoing anguish. We’ll demand that a judge and jury consider how your life has been complicated and changed, so you’ll get what you rightfully deserve to restore you in the eyes of the law.
- Loss of Companionship – When a loved one dies through someone else’s negligence or purposeful act, a vacancy now exists in your family. That’s a deep irreplaceable harm that needs to be taken into legal consideration. We’ll pursue “loss of consortium” payments to provide stable ground for you to begin healing.
We Represent Accident Victims in These Case Types
At Isaacs and Isaacs, we’ll pursue justice and compensation for you in these types of cases:
- Truck Accidents – When you’ve been hit by a big rig, bus or large commercial vehicle.

The Deadline for Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit
After an injury accident involving a car, truck, motorcycle or other vehicle, a legal time clock begins. Known as the statute of limitations, this is the legal deadline to pursue and open a lawsuit. When this expires, there’s often little that can be done to legally help victims.
In the states where we handle the majority of cases, here’s what those deadlines look like:
Kentucky – In most Kentucky injury and property damage cases involving a vehicle, a plaintiff has two (2) years from the date of the accident or from the date of last payment of a medical bill by Personal Injury Protection (PIP) or Basic Reparations Benefits (BRB) to file a legal complaint, the first step in opening a lawsuit. However, if the injured party has opted out of the Kentucky Motor Vehicle Reparations Act (MVRA), then the deadline to file is one (1) year.
- Wrongful Death in KY – One (1) year from date of death or one (1) year from date a personal representative is appointed to represent the Estate, but no longer than two (2) years from date of death.
- Other cases like ATV accidents, dog bite injuries, loss of consortium and product liability have a statute of limitations of one (1) year.
Indiana – A plaintiff has two (2) years from the time of the accident in Indiana to pursue both a personal injury case and a property damage case.1
Ohio – A plaintiff has two (2) years from the time of the accident in Ohio to pursue both a personal injury case and a property damage case.2
Some Deadlines are Different
It’s critical to keep in mind that the statute of limitations may differ when injury accidents involve children, government entities or other special circumstances. We encourage you to pursue legal action without delay so that you don’t miss out on the needed recovery of damages you deserve. Get your questions answered about lawsuits by calling us 24/7.
Don’t Let Evidence Disappear: Start Your Lawsuit Today
When you’ve been in an accident, the evidence immediately begins to disappear from the moment a vehicle is moved or the scene of the accident is left. When we pursue your case, we’ll utilize the help of professional investigators to collect evidence and build your case through the important process of legal discovery.
”Don’t Win, Don’t Pay” – How Our Contingency Fee Works
You may be familiar with the popular “If we don’t win, you don’t pay” slogans seen in lawyer commercials. This is known as the contingency fee model and is widely used by personal injury law firms including here at Isaacs and Isaacs. Many law firms bill clients by the hour. This is not sustainable for a lot of people.
With a contingency fee, we put the financial force of our well-established law firm behind your case. That means we’ll foot the bill upfront for crucial elements like investigation of the accident scene, hiring expert witnesses and most expenses common to personal injury lawsuits. If we win your case, you pay the law firm a percentage from what has been recovered for you in attorney fees and reimburse the costs that have been paid by the firm. If we do not win, you do not pay us a fee or the costs, sparing you the burden of mounting legal expenses.
