As a recent story discussed on this blog revealed, serious accidents do not just happen in vehicles.
There are sadly a lot of ways that Kentucky residents can find themselves seriously hurt because of a traumatic brain injury, a spinal cord injury or other permanent and debilitating injuries that will stay with a person for the rest of his or her life.
We recognize that many of these injuries are preventable. By way of example, sometimes a property owner's failure to keep his or her premises safe can leave a person, even a child, paralyzed or dealing with the effects of a serious brain injury, effects that can include things like mental retardation and stroke-like symptoms.
Our clients who have been through the ordeal of a severe injury, or who have seen their children endure one, come to us with a lot of questions. They may wonder how they are going to pay for the medical bills while keeping up on all of their other financial obligations, especially if they can no longer work because of the injury.
They may also have deeper questions, like whether the person who is at fault for the injury, such as a property owner who could have done more to prevent it, will be held accountable for the pain and suffering the victim has had to endure.
We see our job as helping our client get satisfactory answers to these questions. We do so by aggressively investigating all personal injury cases that we take on, but particularly those that have left a victim permanently disabled. We will use our investigation and our legal skills to help our clients file a lawsuit seeking compensation for their losses and then pursuing that claim to the fullest extent of the law.
