We Encourage You to Act within the State-Mandated Deadline
Kentucky, like every other state, has a civil statute of limitations. This deadline limits how long you have to file a lawsuit, and it generally starts from the date of your injuries.
- You usually have one year to file your personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
- Some factors may toll, extend, or shorten this timeframe.
- Failure to file your personal injury lawsuit within this period can eliminate your right to compensation.
Your Louisville personal injury attorneys will file your lawsuit on time and do what is necessary to prevent unnecessary delays.

What Is a Personal Injury Lawyer and How Are They Different From Other Lawyers?
An injury lawyer helps people hurt because of another person’s negligence. Personal injury lawyers know how to investigate claims and understand the legal process of filing a personal injury lawsuit. In addition, injury attorneys know how to negotiate settlements.
A personal injury attorney must pass a state bar examination and complete continuing education requirements in order to practice law. This includes taking courses on medical malpractice, product liability, and insurance issues.
Personal injury lawyers often work for large firms. These firms handle cases throughout the United States. Some even represent clients outside the United States.
Injury attorneys do not charge upfront fees. Instead, they bill clients according to the amount of recovered money. This is referred to as a “contingency fee basis”.
The largest portion of an injury lawyer’s income comes from contingency fee agreements. Under these contracts, the lawyer receives a percentage of the settlement or verdict.

Proving Negligence in Louisville Personal Injury Cases
Negligence cases require a great deal of investigation before trial. They are complicated because you cannot just go into court and say, “I’m negligent.” You must prove it. This requires gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, analyzing data, and researching. In addition, there are many types of negligence claims, including medical malpractice, car accidents, slip and fall injuries, product liability, nursing home abuse, wrongful death claims, construction defects, premises liability, dog bites, etc. Each type of claim requires a unique set of facts and circumstances. A personal injury lawyer can help you gather the information needed to make a strong case.
Our Louisville Personal Injury Attorneys Will Pursue the Best Possible Outcome
When you entrust your claim to our personal injury and car accident lawyers in Louisville, you can expect us to:
Investigate Your Case
To succeed, your case needs evidence, such as the following:
- The accident or police report
- Your injury-related invoices and receipts to recover medical expenses
- Information from your doctor
- Eyewitness testimony
- Statements from accident reconstruction specialists
- Photos of your injuries and the accident scene
We will obtain all the evidence your personal injury case needs to succeed. As such, we may find and use other information than what’s listed above.
Identify and Calculate Your Losses
We want to recover the full cost of your injury-related losses. To do this, we must calculate their values. Some damages, such as healthcare expenses, come with tangible documentation, like billing statements.
Other damage values aren’t as straightforward. For instance, the cost of your non-economic damages may depend on your:
- Working ability
- Emotional state
- Missed time from work
- Mental health
File Your Insurance Claim
Dealing with the insurance company can be difficult. It may use what you say against you, undervalue your claim, or delay paying out on your claim in hopes that you will accept a very low settlement offer.
To protect your right to compensation, our team will do the following for you:
- File your case’s paperwork
- Abide by all filing deadlines
- Manage communications with the claims adjuster
- Give the insurance company the information it needs
- Send your demand letter
- Negotiate what you need
The insurance company may ask you to give a recorded statement. You don’t have to give one––and doing so does not help your situation. If the insurer asks for a recorded statement, consult your Louisville personal injury lawyer.
File Your Civil Lawsuit
Filing a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit can be complicated. It requires more paperwork than you’d imagine. Filling out forms and abiding by certain deadlines can be taxing – especially while you’re recovering from serious injuries.
This is where our injury team comes in. You don’t have to worry about filing a lawsuit with a Kentucky personal injury lawyer from Isaacs & Isaacs on your side. We will do everything your lawsuit requires, from its initial filing to its final verdict.
