Kentucky Personal Injury Lawyers Seek Compensation for Victims

Aggressive Frankfort firm fights to hold negligent parties accountable

Personal injuries can happen on the road, at work or even at home, often with devastating consequences. When you are injured due to somebody else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your past and future medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, and emotional distress. You need an experienced and aggressive attorney to fight for your rights, to go head-to-head with the insurance companies, and to seek the fair and full compensation needed to pay for your recovery. With more than 65 combined years of experience, attorneys at Johnson Bearse, LLP in Frankfort have successfully employed an assertive, methodical approach to help injured victims recover generous settlements and jury verdicts. We handle your personal injury claim on a contingency basis so that legal bills do not compound the financial stress resulting from your injuries. You don’t pay us unless we secure a financial recovery for you.

Experienced advocates represent people hurt in auto accidents

An auto accident can cause severe physical and financial harm. If you’ve been hurt in a crash, we have a strong track record in collision cases involving:

  • Cars — With decades of experience handling these matters, our litigators will explain how the state’s no-fault insurance system applies to your situation and if a lawsuit is a good option.
  • Trucks — Commercial vehicles are capable of causing serious damage. In these cases, we check to see if rules on speed, load weight and driver rest were followed.
  • Motorcycles — On a motorcycle, riders and passengers can enjoy good times, but they lack the protection provided by other vehicles and might face serious risk from an inattentive driver.

Our attorneys consult top experts, such as trauma doctors, chiropractors, pharmacists, forensics engineers, mechanics and accident reconstruction analysts, to maximize recovery for injuries. At trial, these experts are available to deliver clear, compelling testimony that helps jurors understand the extent and cause of your injuries.

Proven firm handles cases arising from falls, dog bites and faulty products

Kentucky does not cap damage awards in personal injury cases, so our firm will pursue a verdict or settlement that compensates you completely for medical costs, lost wages, rehabilitation expenses, and the pain and suffering that you endured. We handle a wide array of personal injury cases, including:

  • Slip and fall — Our accomplished litigators file premises liability actions when businesses and residential owners fail to take reasonable measures to prevent a slip and fall accident. Failure to clean up a spill or fix a damaged walkway can lead to broken bones, back problems and other types of harm. Under Kentucky’s comparative fault rule, a plaintiff can collect damages even if they are partly responsible for their injury, so an untied shoelace or brief moment of inattention shouldn’t bar recovery.
  • Products liability — In cases where a household item, pharmaceutical or some other product leads to an injury or illness, we take action against negligent parties.
  • Medical malpractice — Determining whether someone’s medical condition or death was caused by medical malpractice can be a complicated process. Whether the incident in question involves a missed diagnosis, surgical error, faulty prescription or some other type of healthcare negligence, we will retain subject matter experts to evaluate the facts and bolster your claim.
  • Dog bites — State law holds that pet owners are legally responsible for injuries stemming from dog bites and other animal attacks. If you’ve been hurt by someone else’s pet, we’ll work diligently to hold the person accountable.
  • Wrongful death — After a fatal incident, the personal representative of the victim’s estate is empowered to file a wrongful death action to obtain damages for surviving family members. A judgment or settlement can include reimbursement for funeral expenses, wages the deceased would have earned and the loss of companionship suffered by the victim’s loved ones.

Consult an attorney immediately following your injury, when witnesses’ recollections are fresh and evidence remains available. Keep in mind that Kentucky law limits the amount of time you have to file your claim for relief. In many cases, victims only have one year from the date of the injury, though extensions can be granted if the victim is a child or did not discover the injury until later. If you’re ready to speak with us, we can schedule appointments on weekends and evenings and willingly come to your home or hospital bed to ensure the timely, thorough investigation of your claims.
