How Do I Know If I Have a Valid Personal Injury Case in Kentucky?
You could have a personal injury case if someone else is legally responsible for your injury. Typically, the standard for proving you have a valid case is negligence. This means you or your lawyer will need to show that someone else’s recklessness or carelessness directly resulted in your injury and other losses.
Here are a few more examples of personal injury cases:
- A truck driver hit you on I-471, causing you major back and neck injuries.
- You were shopping at a grocery store when you slipped on a wet floor with no hazard sign, causing a hip fracture.
- You were riding your bicycle along Riverboat Row when a car veered into you, throwing you from the bike and causing you to break several bones.
In all of these scenarios, someone took a reckless action or careless inaction that led to your injuries.
Per Ky. Rev. Stat. § 413.140(1), personal injury lawsuits generally must be filed within one year. If you were in a car accident, you typically have up to two years, according toKy. Rev. Stat. § 304.39-230. We can explain all of your legal options in a free case review.
What Types of Results Could I See From a Personal Injury Case?
When you bring an injury case against another party, you could recover compensation for your financial and non-financial losses associated with your injuries.
We can tell you what forms of compensation you’re eligible to seek. You could make a recovery for:
This refers to any loss you suffered that has a clear dollar value, such as:
- Medical bills: This may include the cost of your medications, emergency room visits, surgeries, hospitalizations, physical therapy, visits to a doctor, and more.
- Future medical bills: In some cases, you could require ongoing or future treatment.
- Lost wages: Your lost wages could include missed paychecks or tips.
- Reduced earning capacity: If you had to reduce your hours or find a new job to accommodate your limitations, you could recover the difference between your previous and new earnings.
- Out-of-pocket expenses: You could have paid for medical devices or transportation out of pocket, for instance.
Many of your hardships after an accident could be less tangible. Still, you could recover compensation for losses such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Lost enjoyment of life

What Will a Lawyer Do to Help Me With My Newport Injury Case?
A lawyer from Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers can help you handle all the complexities of the legal process. In short, our attorneys will do everything necessary to seek the compensation you deserve.
Consider these tasks that you can hand off to your lawyer:
Determining a Goal Settlement or Award Amount for Your Case
How will you know what your case is worth if an insurance company makes you an offer? Our team can tell you. You don’t have to guess what constitutes a fair offer.
Our attorneys have experience placing a monetary value on intangible losses, determining what your full medical expenses could look like over time, and ensuring you seek what you deserve.
Gathering Compelling Evidence for Your Case
Proving that you deserve compensation from another party can be challenging. That’s why our attorneys will gather the strongest possible evidence in preparation for your settlement or trial process. When we go to the insurance company or the liable party’s lawyers, we will be ready to show that their client harmed you and they owe you compensation.
We may gather evidence from sources such as:
- Eyewitness statements
- Police reports
- Violations records from a business or property owner
- Traffic camera footage
- Dashboard camera footage
- Accident reconstruction data
- Expert witness testimony
Handling Conversations With the Insurance Company
You don’t have to deal with the back-and-forth conversations involved in a settlement or lawsuit. We will speak with the adjusters and the other party’s lawyers for you.
We may proceed with settlement negotiations or file a lawsuit on your behalf. We are prepared to take your case to trial if negotiations don’t produce a fair result.
If the insurance company pushes back and tries to make you a lowball offer, deny or delay your claim, or tell you that your injuries aren’t serious, our team can back you up. We know the tactics insurers use to limit payouts, and we know how to get the results you need.
