Georgetown, KY Personal Injury Lawyer

ACT NOW! Free Consultation

Personal injury claims don’t enforce themselves – they must be fought for, either in court or (preferably) at the settlement table. There is no reason why you should have to face it all alone while you’re still trying to recover from your injuries. Don’t worry, because Georgetown personal injury lawyer Glenn Martin Hammond knows exactly how to make the system work in your favor. And remember — since we work on contingency, you only pay us if we win.

What Types of Accidents Does Personal Injury Law Cover?

Theoretically, you can file a personal injury claim over just about any injury that was caused by someone else’s misconduct. Some of the most common personal injury claims include:

  • A vehicle accident claim (the most common type of personal injury claim);
  • A slip and fall accident;
  • Medical malpractice; and
  • Products liability (a claim that you were injured by an unreasonably dangerous consumer product, such as a defective brake drum)

Settlement vs. Litigation

Most Kentucky personal injury claims are settled privately, without a courtroom trial. Some defendants, however, refuse to settle. Insurance companies, by contrast, generally don’t like to go to court. You may need to file a lawsuit complaint, however, simply to motivate a defendant to raise his settlement offer to a reasonable level. Fortunately, you can settle a case at any time prior to a final courtroom verdict.

Breakdown of a Typical Personal Injury Claim

Following is a list of the components of a typical personal injury claim:

  • Medical expenses, including all future medical expenses related to the injury;
  • Lost work time, perhaps even including lifetime future earnings in the case of permanent total disability;
  • Incidental expenses such a childcare;
  • Compensation for pain and suffering, mental anguish and other intangible injuries; and
  • Punitive damages (but only when the defendant’s conduct was outrageous).

Yes, You Can Afford a Lawyer – Even with No Income

At Glenn Martin Hammond, you only pay us if we win your case. That means you pay no upfront fees, and you owe us nothing in legal fees until the defendant actually transfers your money. When that happens, a percentage goes to us — and if we don’t win your case, you’ll never owe us a dime.

Decisive Action Can Make the Critical Difference
