How to Know If You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer

Personal injury lawyers represent individuals who have been injured physically, psychologically, and financially as a result of the negligence of another party. A variety of circumstances and situations could result in a potential personal injury claim that requires the help and guidance of a legal team.

The most common cases revolve around automobile accidents, which could involve passenger vehicles, commercial trucks, motorcycles, pedestrians, or bicyclists. Negligent drivers have a habit of creating dangerous circumstances that can quickly cause an accident by disobeying traffic laws, speeding, driving while distracted or under the influence.

Other cases, like those involving medical malpractice or product liability, can become more complex. When a doctor or hospital disregards protocol or takes actions that are not within the professional standard of care, patients are likely to suffer from injuries that can significantly set back their health. Manufacturers are obligated to develop products that will be safe for a reasonable person to use. When a defective product injures a person, it’s possible the manufacturer cut corners to save money. These cases are often complicated because of the evidence needed to prove negligence.

No matter what circumstances lead to your injury, if you believe it could have been prevented if the responsible party had acted differently, you may be able to file a valid personal injury claim and seek compensation for the damages you’ve incurred.

Damages for Personal Injury Claims

When a person has been wrongfully injured, it’s likely they’ll be dealing with a number of unexpected consequences. The most pressing are often the financial ones, as depleting savings to pay for medical bills or losing wages from time off work can set an entire family back. We firmly believe that accident victims deserve to be comfortable during their recovery in all ways—including financially. As such, we work hard to ensure our clients receive the compensation they need and deserve to move forward from whatever they’ve been put through.

Damages are separated into two categories: economic and non-economic. Economic damages are monetary losses that can be calculated. Areas like medical expenses, lost wages, property replacement, and cost of living with injuries or a disability are often included. Non-economic damages can be difficult to determine as they are not able to be numerically calculated. Compensation for pain and suffering, disfigurement, and loss of consortium may be available.

Your Bardstown, KY personal injury lawyer will be able to investigate your claim and determine how much a fair settlement amounts to. This will ensure you have the funds to recover from your injury and get your life back in order.
