If you have been injured by the negligence of someone else in Nicholasville, we can help.

When it comes to personal injuries and accidents, they greatly disrupt your everyday life. While the financial consequences of an injury are severe for you and your family, insurance companies often show little or no concern. Handling your claim on your own for your lost wages, mounting medical bills, and your pain and suffering is not advisable. It is wise to focus on your recovery and leave your injury claim to professionals. Trying to negotiate without professional help could result in you leaving tens of thousands of dollars on the table.

It's always a good idea to consult with a personal injury lawyer immediately after you sustain injury in a car accident, slip and fall, workplace accident, or other type of injury. At Roberts Lambert, we offer free consultations to ensure you have the guidance you need.

What do insurance companies have to do with your case?

Insurance companies are mostly hidden from public view. They are out of sight and out of mind until you or a loved one is tragically injured in an accident that was not your fault. Suddenly, the supposedly friendly insurance companies transform from being on your side to being on the other side.

Like it or not, when an insurance company is at risk of having to pay you on a claim, you become their opponent. They want to pay you as little as possible. If you hope to be fairly compensated, you will need aggressive legal representation. Our Nicholasville clients are hardworking people who were injured as a result of negligence. Don’t just think that the insurance company will do the right thing. Insurance company profits depend on injury victims not getting the money they deserve.

We take on the insurance companies. Every. Single. Day.

At Roberts Lambert, we fight back against deceptive injury claim practices from the insurance industry. We know all the tricks insurance companies play to pay less, and we are prepared to fight back. If you have a case, our team will help you appraise the long-term value of your accident so that you get the compensation you deserve. We have more than 20 years of litigation experience and have helped our clients win over $50 million in damages. If you have questions following your Nicholasville accident, contact our Nicholasville personal injury lawyers.

There are several types of compensation available if you were injured in Nicholasville.

If you have been injured in Nicholasville, you may be entitled to compensation for various damages. Keep reading to learn more about different types of personal injury compensation that are available to you.

You can recover medical expenses.

Dealing with the burden of mounting medical bills is one of the top concerns raised during client consultations. But let's start with some uplifting news! Our team takes proactive measures by communicating with your healthcare providers, ensuring they are aware of your pending compensation claim. This simple action shields you from any harassment and minimizes the chances of your bills being sent to collections.

Furthermore, once your case is successfully resolved and your claim settled, a part of your settlement amount will be dedicated to paying off any outstanding medical bills that are not covered by other means. Rest assured, our negotiators will work closely with your doctors and hospitals to help resolve your outstanding bills, providing you with much-needed peace of mind regarding your medical expenses.

You can recover an amount for pain and suffering.

You have a right to seek compensation for the physical pain and emotional distress you have gone through. It is up to the jury to determine an adequate amount of money to fully compensate you for your physical and mental suffering. When it comes to minor fender-benders, there might not be much pain and suffering involved, just a minor inconvenience.

On the other hand, in major accidents resulting in significant physical and mental injuries, the levels of physical and mental pain and suffering can be excruciatingly high. Judges instruct juries to consider all aspects of your pain and suffering. They must take into account whether your injuries are temporary or permanent, the nature of those injuries, and how they have impacted your life.

As dedicated injury attorneys in Nicholasville, it is our responsibility to ensure that none of your pain and suffering is downplayed or overlooked. We will aggressively fight against insurance companies and defendants who attempt to manipulate the facts and deceive the jury.

You can recover lost wages and an amount for a diminished ability to work.

The law guarantees compensation for injury victims, covering both their previous lost wages and their future inability to work as a result of the injury. Serious and catastrophic injury cases inevitably lead to long-term disability.

This often becomes a fiercely litigated element of your claim. Insurance companies and their lawyers will strive to manipulate your work history and undermine your life prior to the injury, all with the goal of minimizing your post-injury compensation. We relentlessly pursue your lost wages and long-term disability claim.

Our focus lies in presenting the comprehensive narrative, ensuring that you are fully compensated for the loss of your working capability.

You can recover for estimated costs of long-term care.

In cases involving serious and catastrophic injuries, it may be necessary to have long-term care, including in-home nursing or assisted living arrangements. If your injury requires this type of care, you have the right to be compensated for the additional costs associated with these services.

We understand the significant responsibility we have in helping our seriously injured clients prepare for the future and ensuring they have the resources needed for ongoing care. We acknowledge the difficult reality of serious injuries as our clients age and require additional assistance. The law allows for full compensation to cover all of your complex medical and caregiving requirements.

In some cases, you can recover punitive damages.

Punitive damages are a type of damages that are awarded against a defendant in order to punish and to deter both the defendant as well as others from engaging in the same or similar misconduct in the future. Punitive damages are an important judicial tool and benefit Nicholasville and other communities by guaranteeing financial accountability for egregious misconduct.

When corporations know that they can be held liable for punitive damages, they are much more likely to exercise reasonable care in how they interact with members of the public. When they ignore basic standards of responsible conduct, we will hold them accountable. We have extensive experience in successfully litigating cases involving punitive damages.

We help you understand the personal injury laws in Nicholasville.

How do Courts Assign Fault After an Accident?

When a plaintiff is injured in an accident, it is the job of the jury and the jury to allocate fault between the plaintiff and the defendant. There are two major fault allocation systems. Comparative fault and contributory fault.

While contributory fault is far less common in modern times, Alabama, Maryland, North Carolina, and Virginia all still follow a contributory fault system. If a plaintiff is found to be even 1% at fault, the plaintiff gets nothing.

The majority of states have found contributory fault systems to be too harsh and have adopted a comparative fault system. With comparative fault, even if the plaintiff is found to be liable, they can still recover for their injury. There are three forms of comparative fault.

Pure comparative fault: in these systems, the plaintiff’s recovery is reduced by their share of fault; so even if the plaintiff is found to be 80% at fault, the plaintiff can still recover 20% of their damages. Kentucky, Florida, MIssouri, Louisiana, and Mississippi follow pure comparative fault.

Modified comparative fault 50% rule: the plaintiff can recover for their injuries so long as they are found to be less than 50% at fault. Arkansas, Tennessee, Georgia, and South Carolina follow modified 50% comparative fault.

Modified comparative fault 51% rule: the plaintiff can recover for their injuries so long as they are found to be less than 51% at fault. Ohio, Indiana, West Virginia, and Illinois follow modified 51% comparative fault.

What is the deadline to file my Nicholasville personal injury case?

Case filing deadlines, also known as the statute of limitations, are not negotiable. If an injured plaintiff fails to file their case before the specified deadline, then their case will be dismissed. No exceptions. If you have a Nicholasville personal injury claim, you cannot afford to miss these deadlines, which can vary greatly based on the type of case and the parties involved. Some can be as short as a few months. Contact our Nicholasville personal injury lawyers today to find out more about the deadline that applies to your case.
