The question of “ Do I have a case for a personal injury claim in Louisville?” is actually answered by several different issues. Generally speaking, the issues associated with a personal injury claim include:
Were your injuries at least partially caused by the negligence of another person or entity? The first issue is one of legal responsibility to cover part or all of the “damages” associated with your injuries.
The next question is essentially one of collecting damages, including availability of insurance. Did the person(s) responsible for the car accident have insurance coverage? If not in a motor vehicle collision, don’t worry as the Uninsured Motorist/UnderInsured Motorist or UM/UIM portion of your own insurance policy may apply.
One of the most important questions is “Did you see a doctor within 48 hours of the accident?” A personal injury claim is directly associated with financial damages such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other expenses you’ve been forced to endure as a result of your injuries. Our attorneys must be able to tie these expenses directly to the accident. If you fail to see a physician for a thorough medical exam within 48 hours of any auto accident the possibility of being able to file a successful personal injury claim as well as the value of that claim may be significantly reduced.
Ultimately, the value of your claim is related to the available proceeds including insurance coverage, the extent and nature of your injuries, all of the associated expenses and the impact your injuries have upon life now and in the future. This is a very complicated issue.
