When to Pursue

a Personal Injury Claim in Kentucky

Many injury victims don’t file a lawsuit after they’ve been injured because they don’t know if they have a case. They don’t want to waste their time further by going to court, only to lose. If this sounds like what you’re going through, you are likely wondering how to know when you should pursue a claim in Kentucky.

The good news is that the ability to file an injury claim is actually fairly simple. Ask yourself, “Could someone else be to blame for my injuries?” If the answer is yes, then you should consider consulting with a Kentucky injury lawyer about the details of your case.

Helping Families Overcome Trauma

Accidents happen, but when they do, the person or persons who are responsible for causing them shouldn’t get away with it, leaving you to pick up the pieces after their mistakes. We understand that the thought of filing a lawsuit can be intimidating. You may even be reluctant to sue in the first place.

Fortunately, when you work with a regarded Kentucky personal injury lawyer at Wilt & Thompson, PLLC, you’ll have a team of lawyers making your interests top priority. We want you to be able to put this traumatic experience behind you. Some of the types of cases we have a strong record of success in include the following:

Do You Have Grounds for a Birth Injury Claim? Here’s How to Tell

Birth Injuries

Injuries that occur to the mother or baby during pregnancy, labor, or delivery may have grounds for a Kentucky birth injury lawsuit.

Medical Malpractice

When a healthcare provider or facility fails to uphold their medical duty of care, and their patient is injured or becomes ill due to their negligence, the victim may be entitled to compensation.

Nursing Home Abuse

Trusted nursing home facilities aren’t always what they seem. Your loved one may have suffered serious nursing home abuse. Help them get the justice they deserve.

Personal Injuries

Any type of accident where one party is injured due to the negligent actions of another is considered a personal injury. Some examples include car accidents, construction accidents, dog bites, work injuries, premises liability cases, defective products, and wrongful deaths, to name a few.

Understanding Liability in Personal Injury Claims

Liability refers to the individual or entity that is to blame for the cause of the injuries you sustained. Your Kentucky injury claim can only be successful in court if your lawyer is able to establish that the party named in your claim is at fault, based on evidence. The type of incident you were in will largely determine who this party is. Here are some examples.
Medical Malpractice

Physicians, hospitals, nurses

Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home facilities, healthcare providers

Birth Injuries

Midwives, obstetricians, hospitals

Other Personal Injuries

Property owners, negligent parties

Your personal injury lawyer in Kentucky will need to carefully review the details of your case and investigate so the right liable party is uncovered in Kentucky.

I hired Ron Wilt to represent me in a case. He was very caring and compassionate, so much that I didn’t believe that anyone could act the way he did. He was very passionate and concerned about our case. I even had Ron’s personal numbers to contact him. He was always available anytime day or night. We lived over 4 hours away from Ron, and he came to our home multiple times to show us that he was there for us.

Recovering Damages After a Personal Injury in Kentucky

In addition to bringing the liable party to justice for their actions, the goal of any personal injury claim is to recover compensation for your losses. More commonly known as “damages,” these losses are broken up into two categories: economic and non-economic damages.
Economic Damages

Economic damages consist of your financial losses. Anything that costs you money is going to fall into this category.

 

  • Medical expenses

  • Loss of income

  • Property damage

  • Diminished earning capacity

  • More

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages consist of losses related to your lifestyle and emotional state.

  • Diminished quality of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of companionship and love
  • Loss of household services
  • Inconvenience
  • Scarring or disfigurement
  • More
The reason for the division of damages is because economic damages already have a set monetary value, whereas non-economic damages will need to be quantified. After assigning your non-economic damages a monetary value, this total will be combined with your economic losses to see how much your Kentucky personal injury claim is worth.
