If you were involved in a motor vehicle accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your pain and suffering, medical bills, property damage, prescription drug costs, rental car expenses, lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life, and permanent or partial disability. In Kentucky, drivers are required to maintain insurance to pay for their negligence. If an at-fault driver does not have enough insurance to cover your losses, your own insurance policy may pay the difference.

 

Additionally, whether or not you were at fault, you may be entitled to some benefits. If you maintained legally-required "no-fault" insurance, you have the right to up to $10,000 for medical expenses and lost wages, without having to go to court.

 

A motor vehicle accident can have devastating, long-term effects. Recovery can be a long and difficult road. The pain may be disabling. Your vehicle may not be drivable. Your employer may be threatening to fire you for not coming back to work. At a time when you may need to work the most, you can't work. To add insult to injury, bill collectors may start hounding you for payment and threatening to damage your credit, in violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act or Fair Credit Reporting Act. In some cases, the insurance company may wrongfully deny payment of disability benefits or medical payments, in violation of Kentucky's Consumer Protection Act or the Insurance Code.

 

For these reasons, hiring an attorney with expertise in the laws of personal injury, employment, debt collection, and consumer protection makes sense. The attorneys at Taylor Couch will evaluate and address each aspect of your case to ensure all your legal rights are respected.
