Louisville Personal Injury & Medical Malpractice Attorneys

When you suffer serious injury, our Kentucky law firm fights for your rights

Experiencing serious accidents, injuries, or harm changes the trajectory of your life. Recovering from a severe injury involves time off work, considerable medical expenses, and the stress of wondering where your next paycheck might come from. This doesn’t take into account the emotional trauma of an accident and healing from your injuries, which can often be more grueling than the incident itself. When another’s negligence caused your accident, it’s vital they are held accountable for your damages.

At Wilt & Associates, PLLC, our Louisville attorneys want to help. Our personal injury and malpractice lawyers have decades of experience helping the injured, neglected, and harmed throughout the state fight for their rights and the compensation to which they are entitled. Our local and statewide network of expert witnesses and resources gives you the edge you need when going up against powerful insurance companies and corporations. Talk to Wilt & Associates today. Respectful service. Straightforward legal advice. This is our promise to you.

What kinds of personal injury claims do your attorneys handle?

The lawyers at Wilt & Associates choose to focus their work specifically on injury cases – protecting individuals, families, and children harmed through another’s negligent or intentional acts. When you’ve suffered a life-altering, disabling, or permanent injury, we want to help. These are the types of accidents and injuries that aren’t over when the initial injury heals. Victims often suffer side effects, complications, emotional difficulties, and disabilities that don’t go away with time.

Honest and compassionate Louisville medical malpractice attorneys

Louisville Kentucky Lawyers

Medical malpractice and negligence is a pervasive issue in healthcare. The National Library of Medicine published a study in 2021 that stated one in every three clinicians will be sued for medical malpractice at least once during the course of their career. Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional’s negligence causes a patient injury and losses.

Your doctor, surgeon, or obstetrician is supposed to help you get better, not worse, and when their mistakes or carelessness results in lifelong disability or the death of your loved one, you can turn to the Louisville medical malpractice attorneys for justice. We have an impressive record of success, securing millions in settlements and jury verdicts for clients just like you.

Wilt & Associates is known throughout Kentucky as the gold-standard firm when it comes to complex medical malpractice cases. Founder and lead attorney Ron Wilt is a former malpractice defense lawyer before leaving to start a career fighting to protect the injured. This experience gives us a unique understanding when handling malpractice claims, an “inside perspective” that allows us to build the strongest possible case on your behalf. We work with a variety of malpractice cases, including:

I was injured on someone else’s property in Louisville – can you help?

Yes, let’s talk. Whether you’re a customer, visitor, or guest on someone else’s property, they have a responsibility to keep you safe from danger and hazardous conditions. This responsibility is called a “duty of care.” When property owners fail in this duty of care and someone suffers harm or injury, they can be held liable and accountable under Kentucky’s premises liability laws.

Examples of the types of premises liability and dangerous property claims our attorneys handle include:

The team at Wilt & Associates can discuss your claim in a personal and risk-free consultation.

Does your Louisville law firm handle defective product claims?

When you or a loved one suffer injury because of a dangerous, defective, or malfunctioning product, our attorneys can help. Defective products cause millions of consumers injuries every year – in fact, according to the National Safety Council (NSC), in 2021, 11.7 million Americans visited ERs for product-related injuries. This was a nearly seven percent jump from the previous year.

The NSC also notes, “Most of the injuries involve everyday products often assumed to be safe. Many of these injuries occur to our most vulnerable populations, older adults and young children. Common products such as televisions, household cleaning products, and even beds can pose risks.” Their top three dangerous products are:

  • Stairs, ramps, landings, floors
  • Beds, pillows, mattresses
  • Chairs, sofas, sofa beds

Our Louisville product liability attorneys can help if you or a family member were harmed by any of these products, or defective drugs, medical devices, sporting goods, vehicle parts, and children’s products.

What other types of Louisville personal injury claims does your firm handle?

Here at Wilt & Associates, if you suffered harm and losses from the negligence or recklessness of another, our attorneys want to help. We offer legal representation in nearly all types of personal injury claims, including:

  • Construction accidents, when workers injured on the job need to file third-party claims. These types of claims include incidents involving unsafe work conditions, machine or tool malfunction, employer or employee negligence, and other issues that fall outside of workers’ compensation.
  • Equestrian injuries, which can be catastrophic, leading to spinal cord injuries and paralysis. Kentucky has a long tradition and love of horses, whether for hobby or for sport. However, riding is not without its risks. The attorneys at Wilt & Associates have a full understanding of the Kentucky Equine Activity Act, giving you the information and knowledge you need for your case.

How will my Louisville personal injury lawsuit work?

If you’re reading this, you likely have never been involved in any type of lawsuit before. Although every case is unique, most lawsuits follow a certain process. One thing to remember is that a personal injury lawsuit is a civil suit and not a criminal one. When a person or party breaks the law, the state files charges and handles prosecution. In a civil personal injury case, the victim (or plaintiff) sues for the damages and harm they suffered as a result of the negligence of the defendant.

Most personal injury lawsuits proceed in the following manner:

  1. Our attorneys serve a complaint to the defendant, or at-fault party
  2. The defendant or their counsel has a set period to answer the complaint
  3. Next, we conduct discovery, which is a request for evidence, documents, statements, etc.
  4. After discovery comes depositions, which is when all parties involved (including witnesses, doctors, and experts) make statements regarding the incident that resulted in your injuries
  5. Then, our attorneys conduct negotiations, where we work to reach a fair settlement before taking your case to trial
  6. If negotiations break down or fail, Wilt & Associates will take your case to trial and fight for maximum compensation for your losses

For more specific details and timelines, you can schedule a personal consultation with our Louisville personal injury attorneys to discuss the aspects of your unique claim.

What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Louisville?

Generally, in Kentucky plaintiffs have one year from the date of their injury to file a claim against the negligent party. (Note: with motor vehicle accidents, this statute of limitations is two years.)

This means the clock starts running the day you’re injured, or the day you are diagnosed with your injury, and expires one year later. In cases of birth injuries or other injuries to children, the statute of limitations begins when they turn 18 and expires one year later.

It’s important to understand if you fail to file your claim within the statute of limitations, the court will not hear your case. This is why it’s crucial to contact a Louisville personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident.

Am I entitled to compensation for my Louisville personal injury claim?

The purpose of a civil lawsuit, or personal injury claim, is to both hold the wrongdoer accountable for their actions and to secure compensation for the losses you’ve incurred (and will incur) due to your injuries. We fight for maximum compensation for persons suffering from anything from compound fractures, internal hemorrhaging, subdermal hematomas and herniated discs, to traumatic brain injuries. The Louisville attorneys at Wilt & Associates work to secure compensation for:

  • Ongoing medical care, including follow-up care, rehabilitative services, physical therapy and surgeries
  • Lost wages and future loss of earning capacity, including obtaining long-term disability care
  • Adaptive medical technology for those needing mobility aids
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional damages
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Punitive damages, if certain circumstances apply

Insurance companies often undervalue the cost of your medical care. We hold negligent parties and persons accountable. We work to obtain compensation for the full extent of your injuries.
