Attorney Jim Desmond
Hi, my name is Jim Desmond and I only handle all kinds of personal injury claims, from car wrecks to motorcycle accidents. My law office is in Louisville, Kentucky, but I am also licensed to handle personal injury claims in Kentucky and Southern Indiana. I have been practicing law since 1993 in Kentucky and 1994 in Indiana. However, if you suffer from a personal injury due to the negligence of another person anywhere from Kentucky and Southern Indiana, we can help you.
I handle many Louisville personal injury claims from car accidents such as head-on collision accidents, T-Bone accidents, motorcycle accidents, tractor-trailers, moped injuries, injuries while riding a scooter, pedestrians hit by a vehicle, and others. I have my own law firm but before that, I used to work with a big “Television Lawyer.” So yes, I am an experienced car accident lawyer who has handled both big and small personal injury claims.
When I worked with that big Television Attorney, I found out that they cared more about quantity than quality. That’s why I give you my cell phone number: (502) 609-7657. Yes, that is my cell phone and it has been so for over 15 years. Very simply, YOU can reach me with your questions and concerns. Who am I? An experienced Louisville personal injury lawyer who handles injuries from car accidents. I want to be your lawyer and I prove that on a daily basis by making sure my clients have the means of reaching me directly! I’ll personally handle your car accident claim! You don’t deserve to hear second-hand information from a paralegal, case manager, or secretary.
After all, how can you trust me with your injury claim unless we have spoken multiple times since the car wreck? As a Louisville personal injury lawyer, my job is to help people injured in a motor vehicle wreck because of someone else’s carelessness and inattention. What makes me different from every other injury attorney in town? You will deal directly with ME. So you have the right to know what I am thinking and what my game plan is for handling your personal injury claim.

That act, also known as the KMVRA, established […]
As an attorney, I really do not encourage you to give a recorded statement without your attorney. When insurance companies ask for such a statement, it’s their standard procedure. In response, I usually ask why they need it. For example, if you were hit by a drunk driver, in the rear-end of your vehicle while […]
So, I just spoke to a previous client who was in a car wreck. She suspected the at-fault driver was drunk and indicated he was slurring his words.

Does anyone else remember the Yugo? It was a car built by the former Soviet Union in the 1980’s. Its reliability was so bad that you would have been better off driving a Ford Pinto than buying that car. Well, no matter they try to claim otherwise, there is no way any personal injury attorney, […]
Why do I balk about using a big, law firm to handle your personal injury claim? It is all about customer service and knowing the details of your injury claim.

LMPD indicated yesterday that they will not be responding to non-injury car wreck and/or hit and run accidents. So, stop and think about the fact that when a car accident happens, you potentially have four claims immediately: 1) a claim for the damage to your vehicle; 2) a claim for the loss of use of […]
As a personal injury lawyer, I did not expect to have to comment on the coronavirus.
