Best-in-class semi-truck attorneys in Bullitt County, Kentucky
You have just finished an awesome round of golf at the Heritage Hills golf course. You say goodbye to your friends, and you hop in your car excited to go back home and tell your wife and children just how great of a day you had. As you're driving down the road, you notice a vehicle swerving in opposing traffic. Before you know it, the vehicle has swerved into your lane. You attempt to avoid it, but there's nothing you can do to prevent the crash.
Now, you are sitting inside your damaged vehicle. You are injured, but you do not know how severely. It is clear that your automobile is ruined. You went from having the best day of your life to being in a nightmare situation.
Do you have a case?
This is a question that we hear a lot from clients. They wonder if they really need a Bullitt County lawyer or if they can just handle their case on their own. Any scrupulous attorney is going to tell you that there is no legal requirement for you to have an attorney represent you in a personal injury case. You can go at it on your own. However, every reputable attorney will also tell their clients that their chances for success pursuing compensation on their own are greatly diminished when compared to using a personal injury attorney.
The reason for this is because after an accident, an accident victim is not just dealing with the person who caused the accident. They are also dealing with that individual's insurance company. An insurance company makes money by not paying out settlements. For this reason, they have an entire bank of lawyers, investigators, and other professionals at the ready with the sole purpose to deny claims or to pay out as little as possible for an insurance claim.
When a person goes toe to toe with an insurance company, the insurance company is holding all of the cards. After an automobile accident, the victim is likely injured. This means that they have medical bills they need to pay, and it likely means that they are not working, so their everyday bills are accumulating. This means that it is in the insurance company's best interests to just sit back and wait. Their hope is that the financial situation of the injured person gets to the point where they have to just cave and accept any settlement offered.
