  • Proven Results For Victims Of Serious Injuries Throughout KY and OH.

If you've suffered an injury due to the negligence of another, you may be unable to work, overwhelmed with piles of medical bills, and in constant pain. A sudden accident can affect the quality of your everyday life and prevent you from taking part in those activities that you once enjoyed. There is no reason that you should have to shoulder the physical, emotional, and financial burden that an injury can cause. Even though KY and Ohio have “No-Fault” and “MedPay” coverage designed to provide for temporary financial concerns, recovery is also available against the at-fault party.If your injury is the result of another person’s negligent actions, it is in your best interest to contact an experienced attorney immediately to learn about your rights. Lisa M. Wells is an experienced and aggressive litigator, who is willing to take your case to court, and a veteran negotiator, who will settle your case when it is in your best interest. She will fight to get the compensation you need and deserve to cover the costs of damages and injuries for a wide variety of personal injury cases.

Personal injury law is based on the idea that people should not have to suffer the consequences of injuries that are not their fault. The compensation that an injured person receives is designed to help them return to the life they enjoyed before the accident occurred. Compensable damages are damages that can be readily documented and accounted for, and that usually have a concrete or tangible value. Some common examples of compensable damages include, but are not limited to medical bills, lost time at work, property loss or property damage, damages due to past pain and suffering, and damages due to future pain and suffering and/or lost earning capacity.

 

IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING YOUR ACCIDENT….

Try your best to document any and all details of the accident, starting with the names, contact information, and insurance information of all parties involved, as well as the names and contact information of any and all witnesses. If possible, try to take pictures of the accident scene as well;

Try your best to also document in writing any and all conversations you have with anyone at the scene, including but not limited to other parties involved in the accident, emergency personnel, officers, witnesses, etc.;

Seek medical care for your injuries and keep track of any and all receipts and bills for costs associated with the accident (i.e., medical bills, vehicle repair work receipts, etc.);

Follow your doctor's instructions completely to ensure complete and proper healing of your injuries.

DO NOT admit to any fault or liability of any kind regarding the accident when speaking about the accident to relevant individuals. Simply relay clear and concise facts about the accident without expressing opinions;

Do Not submit anything in writing to either insurance company without seeking the advice of counsel if you do not completely understand your insurance policy or the other party’s insurance policy.

DO NOT blindly accept information from any insurance company as the absolute final word on all matters. Be diligent and do your own investigations and/or compile your own estimates regarding claim costs so that you have something to negotiate with in the event of a dispute;

DO NOT sign any release or waiver of any kind. Always consult any attorney if you are asked to sign any document that you do not completely understand;

DO NOT accept any check designated as “Payment in Full” or “Full and Final Payment”

Following your accident, an adjuster from the insurance company may contact you and show great concern about your health and damage to your property, reassuring you that your claim is a priority that will be well taken care of. However, the bottom line is that insurance companies are in the business to make money…a lot of it. In order to do so, their goal is to pay out as little money as possible on every claim. Lisa M. Wells will see to it that the insurance company does not take advantage of you by offering low-ball settlements.
