Bowling Green Personal Injury Lawyers
Homegrown & Experienced Kentucky Injury Attorneys
Have you or a loved one been injured in an accident? If you have recently suffered a serious injury, you’re probably dealing with a lot. Expensive medical bills, physical therapy, stress, and trauma are all common during the aftermath of an accident.
Plus, if your accident was caused by someone else, their insurance company is likely trying to convince you to settle for a sum that won’t even cover your medical expenses. The worst part is that you are forced to deal with all these things while simply trying to recover from your injuries.

Determining Who Is At Fault After an Accident
Personal injury claims commonly involve motor vehicle and slip and fall accidents. Following a car wreck, for instance, the driver who caused the accident would be considered “at-fault.”
In a slip and fall accident, who can be considered at-fault is often more complicated, but the blame often falls on the owner of the property where the fall occurred—assuming that your accident was caused by a hazard they should have removed, such as water collecting on the floor from a pipe leak.
In both instances, you and your attorney will have to present evidence showing how the accident occurred and who—or what—caused it. If you are not at fault, you can receive compensation to cover your losses.
Helping Personal Injury Victims get the Compensation They Deserve
If you have found yourself in a situation like this, the Kentucky Injury Law Center can help. Our Bowling Green personal injury lawyers focus on representing clients who have been injured due to the actions of another person or entity—for instance, if you were driving and a drunk driver hit your car, causing you to sustain a brain or back injury.
We can help you prove who was liable for the accident and convince their insurance company to provide the funds you need to pay for all your accident-related expenses.

How a Personal Injury Case Works
How a Personal Injury Case Works
In a personal injury case, the “plaintiff” is you, the injured individual, and the at-fault party is the “defendant.” Though such language may conjure up images of a courtroom setting, most personal injury claims are settled outside of court.
When you file a personal injury claim, the goal is to collect a “settlement” that will pay for the damages you have suffered. “Damages” are the calculable losses suffered by you, the plaintiff.
Compensation for Personal Injury Cases
There are two types of damages in personal injury lawsuits: economic and non-economic.
Rare personal injury settlements may also include punitive damages, which punish the defendant if they caused excessive harm due to a particularly reckless action, such as drunk driving.
The compensation you can receive in a personal injury case is calculated based on two categories:
- Economic damages: These include medical bills, lost wages from time taken off work to recover, the cost of ongoing medication and therapy, and more.
- Non-economic damages: These cover intangible losses such as mental trauma, embarrassment, pain, and any other suffering you may have experienced as a result of your accident.
You and your Kentucky personal injury attorney will work together to calculate how much money you need to pay for expenses that have already accumulated as well as what funds you need moving forward. The goal is to receive enough money to pay for every expense, both past and future.
How Long Do Personal Injury Cases Last in Kentucky?
The timeframe of a personal injury case can vary. If the defendant is compliant, we can probably handle everything quickly through amicable negotiations. If the situation becomes contentious, however, we may have to take your case to trial.
Trials can be long, drawn-out processes, but we will be at your side providing guidance and representation the whole time. And the results will be worth it.
