How does a personal injury lawsuit work?

Most people have never really been involved in a personal injury lawsuit. Therefore, you likely have a lot of questions about the process after an accident and injuries. The most important thing to understand is that a personal injury claim is a civil suit, and not part of the criminal justice process. A civil suit is meant to help a victim recoup damages for the injuries and harm they have suffered due to the negligence of another.

A typical personal injury lawsuit proceeds as follows:

  • Our Kentucky attorneys serve a complaint to the at-fault party (or defendant)
  • The defendant or their attorneys have a set amount of time to answer
  • Our attorneys conduct discovery, including requests for documents, statements, and evidence
  • Following that are depositions, where all involved parties make statements regarding the accident or incident when your injuries occurred, including doctors and expert witnesses
  • Next come negotiations or mediation, where we will attempt to reach a settlement before going to trial
  • If that is unsuccessful, our attorneys are prepared to take your case to trial where will dedicate our resources toward successfully resolving your case

The details and timeline of a claim depend on the specific circumstances of your case. We are happy to discuss your potential claim in a personal and free consultation.

How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit in Lexington?

Here in Kentucky, you generally have just one year from the date of their injury to file a claim. The statute of limitations will begin either the day you are injured or the day on which you and your doctor discover your injury. It will expire one year later. In cases where children or infants are injured, the statute of limitations expires one year after they reach the age of 18.

Remember, this deadline is crucial and the courts will reject your lawsuit if you attempt to file it past the statute of limitations.

What is the value of my Lexington personal injury claim?

Many injury and accident survivors find themselves thinking that despite someone else being at fault for the injuries they sustained, their condition isn’t severe enough to warrant the pursuit of a personal injury claim. Fortunately, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

All the ways that an injury, can affect your life as a whole can be damaging. In Lexington personal injury claims, our attorneys work to secure compensation for losses like:

  • Lost income
  • Loss of consortium
  • Property damage
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Medical expenses
