Should I File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
Personal injury lawsuits are never something you want to get involved in, but they serve an important purpose. If you’ve suffered an injury caused by someone else, it shouldn’t be your responsibility to cover all of the enormous medical bills, lost wages and other expenses.
The impact that accidents make on a person’s life can vary – it could be a minor nuisance or it could be something much worse…life-altering, even. This is why personal injury lawsuits exist. They’re a means to make things right for people harmed of no fault of their own.
If you are injured by someone else due to negligence, you can hold them accountable in court and get the compensation you need to help you restore your life back as much as possible.
Four Elements of Negligence
Not all injured accident victims have the right to recover financial compensation through a personal injury case. In most cases, a victim must establish negligence – the failure to exercise an ordinary amount of care. When negligence causes injuries or deaths, the responsible party can be held accountable. It is up to the injured party, or plaintiff, to prove negligence, however. This requires evidence of four key elements:
- Duty of care owed
- Departure from the duty of care
- Direct cause of the injury
- Damages suffered
These “Four Ds” of negligence essentially mean that the defendant must have had a responsibility to act toward the victim in a way that a reasonable and prudent party would in the same circumstances. And violated this duty of care through a careless act or omission, and caused the victim’s accident and related losses.

How Much Is My Claim Worth?
Filing a personal injury claim in Kentucky could end in a financial award being given to you for your related losses. The value of your claim is dependent on many things, such as the nature of your accident and injuries, insurance coverage limits, and total damages. State law allows the recovery of both economic and noneconomic damages. Your economic damages are the financial ways in which the accident impacted you, while noneconomic are the personal or intangible effects.
Your list of losses may include:
- Necessary hospital bills and medical care, both now and in the future
- Disability accommodations, such as home or vehicle modifications
- Required physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Medical devices and medications
- Damaged, lost or destroyed property
- Physical pain, suffering, inconvenience and emotional distress
- Loss of consortium, or the loss of a loved one’s companionship
- Punitive damages, awarded to punish a defendant
The details of your case can be discussed with an attorney to best find out what you’re entitled to. It is important to work with an attorney who can create a comprehensive list of losses to submit in a demand letter to an insurance company. An attorney can give you an accurate evaluation of the value of your case and come up with a strategy to pursue maximum financial compensation. We can take a case to trial if this is necessary to achieve the best possible results.
What to Expect During a Personal Injury Case in Kentucky
In Kentucky, the civil justice system holds that an injured accident victim should not have to pay for his or her own medical expenses and other losses if the injury was caused by the negligence, carelessness or recklessness of another party. It offers a way for the victim to hold the at-fault party financially responsible, or liable. When a personal injury claim is filed, the injured victim becomes the plaintiff and the responsible party becomes the defendant.
Upon the filing of the suit, a copy will be sent to the defendant. The defendant will then have the chance to respond, either by accepting liability for the incident and offering a settlement or rejecting the claim. The vast majority of personal injury cases in Kentucky settle, meaning that the insurance company and plaintiff (or plaintiff’s attorney) reach an agreement on an amount of money that is acceptable to resolve the legal dispute. A small portion of personal injury cases, however, proceed to trial.
If an insurance company fails to offer a fair amount in financial compensation, the plaintiff may need to go to court to pursue a jury verdict. Although success is not guaranteed in a personal injury trial, a positive verdict could end in greater financial compensation than the low settlement the insurer was offering. It is important to choose a personal injury lawyer with trial experience to prepare for the possibility of a court case.
