No one wakes up in the morning expecting to be involved in a devastating, life-altering car crash, truck accident or motorcycle injury. Such accidents often happen in the blink of an eye, with little or no warning. Even the most cautious, attentive drivers can be at the mercy of circumstances beyond their control. Unfortunately, in many cases, a cascade of mistakes and oversights on the part of the truck driver, trucking company and others may culminate in tragedy.
In the aftermath of a motor vehicle accident, you may quickly realize that the complex legal considerations are far beyond your ability or desire to navigate on your own. Choosing an attorney to represent you – and protect your rights and interests – is a big decision.
At Hargadon, Lenihan & Herrington, PLLC, a Kentucky-based law firm dedicated exclusively to personal injury, we understand the magnitude of what is at stake. Since 1925, we have proudly protected the rights of personal injury victims.
The first question to ask a Kentucky personal injury attorney should be: “How many cases have you taken to trial?”
Many people understandably believe every lawyer spends almost every day in court.
The fact is the number of attorneys who regularly take cases before a jury is extremely small, and insurance companies keep detailed records on each injury attorney. They know if your attorney is willing and able to take your case all the way to a jury trial and win, or if they have a track record of settling cases quickly for a much lower value than what the client deserves. That reputation affects the willingness of the insurance company to negotiate in a fair manner. We have taken hundreds of cases to court and dozens through to a successful jury verdict. We have been recognized by our peers and the legal industry as injury attorneys who have achieved noteworthy results over a long period of time.
This recognition is another key indicator. The legal industry and other attorneys recognize skill and expertise within our field. Look for invitations and awards from exclusive organizations that recognize the top 5% of attorneys such as Martindale Hubbel, Super Lawyers, ABOTA and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates.
Finally, your attorney should be accessible, responsive and comfortable to work with. Look for an attorney who will respond personally and promptly to your calls and emails.
When considering which law firm or attorney to turn to for legal guidance, you should take into account a number of factors, including:
