Can You Help If The Other Driver Did Not Carry Insurance?

Yes. Our Elizabethtown lawyers have helped drivers recover the cost of accidents caused by drivers who do not have sufficient insurance coverage to pay for the costs.

In some cases your own insurance provider may be obligated for the reimbursements, but they may be reluctant to give you everything to which you are entitled. We help with policy review and negotiation of a fair settlement to make sure you receive all of the available benefits.

If your auto insurance policy does not cover accidents caused by an uninsured or underinsured motorist, then we use our knowledge of Kentucky law to pursue claims directly against the other driver.

What Are My Options After Losing A Loved One In A Fatal Crash?

The Kentucky wrongful death statute allows you to seek financial compensation for the loss of a loved one. When a person is killed through another person's fault, Kentucky tort law allows a family member to bring a law suit to obtain financial compensation for their loss.

It is very important to meet with a skilled attorney as soon as possible. These wrongful death claims must be filed within two years of a death. This seems like a long time, but can pass quickly as you grieve the loss.

What Is Included When Talking About Damages?

If the negligent behavior of someone else caused a car accident, then you are entitled to financial compensation to cover all the losses and expenses you suffer as a result. This includes not just damage to the vehicle itself, but also the pain, suffering and other expenses you experienced.

What Should I Do After An Accident?

Call our office at 502-855-7600 or send us an email to discuss your concerns. After you tell us what happened, we will explain your legal options and what we can do. The initial consultation is free and confidential.
