If you or a loved one has sustained any type of injury through no fault of your own, it is essential to seek the help of an experienced Kentucky personal injury attorney. At Maze Law Offices, we can examine the facts of your case, help determine what actions need to be taken, and work endlessly to get you the compensation you deserve, as fast as you may need it. Many injuries leave people with pain and suffering, medical bills, wage loss, and other undue hardships. During this time, the last thing needed is the stress and hassle of going through the entire process alone.
Often, people are hesitant to file a claim or lawsuit because they are reluctant to sue friends, fellow members of their community, or local businesses. However, the overwhelming majority of injury settlements or awards are paid by big insurance companies. Our team puts litigation and investigation experience to work, holding insurance companies and big corporations accountable when accidents or negligence cause people to suffer.
The type of personal injury claim you file will depend on the type of accident you were in. Your accident will also impact the evidence you need to prove you are owed compensation for your losses. When you work with a Kentucky personal injury attorney from Maze Law Offices, you can rest assured that your claim will be handled carefully by well-versed legal professionals. Some of the most common claim types we see in Kentucky include the following:
Auto accidents occur on Kentucky roads every day. Just in 2020, there were nearly 120,000 crashes–thousands of which resulted in injury and 708 resulting in fatalities. There are a number of factors that impact the severity of a given accident, including the vehicles involved, speed, the force of impact, and the type of crash. The most common types of auto accidents in Kentucky include the following:
Throughout the state of Kentucky, dog owners are strictly liable for any injuries or damage their dogs cause. When a dog bites or attacks someone, the owner can be held accountable for any related losses, including medical bills, lost wages, etc. Owners of vicious dogs may face additional legal consequences, including fines, penalties, and pet restrictions.
If a dog has attacked you or someone you love, it is important to seek legal counsel. Even if an attack seems minor, there can be severe consequences. We can advise you of your rights and help you determine how best to proceed to protect your family.
Sometimes referred to as slip and fall claims, premises liability cases arise when a property owner fails to ensure their visitors are safe from known or predictable harm. Premises liability claims can be filed against homeowners, business owners, and government agencies.
Comparative negligence often plays a role in premises liability claims, which is the legal concept that could reduce your total settlement in the event it is determined you are partially at fault for your accident. In order to avoid receiving less than you are owed, it is crucial to consider working with our lawyers.
Every professional comes with its own inherent risks; however, some injuries are more dangerous than others. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the most hazardous fields include:
Employers owe employees a responsibility to ensure their workplaces are safe. If someone cuts corners to save money or time and an employee is injured, the negligent party can be held accountable. There are also instances where third-party accidents occur. If you have been injured at work, it is imperative to seek guidance from a Kentucky personal injury attorney to learn about how you best recover.
It is important to note that filing a lawsuit is subject to a strict statute of limitations no matter what type of case you have. In Kentucky, personal injury victims typically only have one year from the date of the accident to pursue a claim in court. If you miss your deadline, you will be unable to seek compensation for your losses. Fortunately, our attorneys are well aware of those deadlines and will ensure that all the necessary paperwork is filed on time.
While you have every right to pursue a personal injury claim on your own, it is crucial to understand the benefits of hiring an attorney. You shouldn’t have to go it alone. To start, state laws are complicated. It can be challenging to decipher what specific statutes mean and how they apply to your situation–particularly when you are also focused on recovering physically and mentally. Your Maze Law Offices lawyer will thoroughly review your case to determine which laws apply while explaining what they mean for you.
Our attorneys strive to provide clear, transparent communication with all of our clients. We recognize the struggles you are facing, and we are here to guide you through the legal process to give you the best possible chance at recovery. You won’t have to worry about paperwork or difficult conversations with insurance adjusters when you allow us to represent you.
We also understand that you may not always be able to come to us. However, we are available to come to you–whether you are at home, in the hospital, or at another facility. Oftentimes, we have same-day appointments available, so we can get started on your claim as soon as you are ready.
Many factors will determine how much you may be able to receive in a settlement. Some of these factors include:
Many cases do not require you to go to court. A majority of clients want their medical bills paid. You can rest assured knowing that we will do what it takes, though, to get you the settlement you deserve, even if that means going to court. If you have a question about how this process works, please contact our office.
If you choose to pursue a personal injury claim after an accident, you will likely be discussing your accident with the at-fault party’s insurance company. Unfortunately, insurance companies are not your friends. Even a simple “how are you?” could be a setup to claim your injuries are not as bad as you say. However, when a Kentucky personal injury attorney is representing you, you can rest assured that we will not let an insurance company take advantage of you. We will ensure you understand what your case is valued at, so you never accept less than you are owed. We will also be sure to file all paperwork on time with the necessary evidence to avoid complications with due dates and late filings.
