Georgetown, Kentucky Personal Injury Lawyer Looking Out for You
When you have been injured because of the negligence or misconduct of another, you may rightly believe that the other party is responsible to compensate you for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other legal damages. What you may not know is that the law puts the burden on you to prove the other party’s negligence to the satisfaction of a judge or jury. Meanwhile, the other party’s insurance company uses every available strategy to deny their liability or pay as little as possible. They may even try to blame you for your own injuries! From our office in Georgetown, injury attorney Jeremy Mattox helps people injured by the negligence or wrongful conduct of others obtain full and fair compensation for their injuries.
Help with Kentucky Auto and Motorcycle Accidents
If you are injured in a car accident in Kentucky, you will find yourself facing a confusing array of options and procedures regarding no-fault insurance Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage and potential fault-based claims. Knowing whether to accept, reject or buy-back PIP coverage, and knowing when you can or cannot sue another driver for negligence can be complicated. The situation can be even more confusing for motorcyclists, with the law’s strange mix of optional PIP coverage and limitations on the right to sue. We take the time to understand your particular situation and advise you on your rights and options. If you need legal assistance or representation dealing with the insurance companies or going to court, you will find us to be diligent and determined to get you the financial relief you are entitled to.
Talk to an Attorney before You Talk to the Insurance Company
Any time you have a claim against an insurance company, you are in an adversarial relationship, and the sad fact is that the insurance company will do what it can to pay as little as possible to settle your claim. Insurance adjusters are experts at evaluating claims; they know what your claim is worth and what you are likely to settle for. When a person is not represented by an attorney, the offer from the insurance company is almost never what the claim is actually worth. You can level the playing field by hiring a lawyer who is experienced with injury cases and knows what your case is worth. When the insurance company sees you are represented by an experienced attorney with a record of getting results, they are much more likely to deal fairly with you. If a satisfactory settlement can’t be reached, your lawyer will be prepared and in a position to take the case to court and seek a favorable jury verdict.
