Determining Fault in a Multi-Car Collision

When you have a car wreck involving multiple vehicles, the legal concept of negligence is still the key to proving which driver was at fault and recovering your damages.  It’s why we focus on determining fault in a multi-car collision.  What do I mean by this? Assume you have a collision involving four vehicles at […]

Medical Freedom for Victims: Your Right to Choose Your Doctor

To be clear, no-fault insurance, or med-pay coverage, does not require you to go a specific doctor or get pre-authorization.  Rather, the Kentucky Motor Vehicle Reparations Act says that if the treatment is reasonable and related to the injuries sustained in the car wreck, the PIP carrier, a.k.a. the no-fault insurance company, owes coverage for […]

Accountability Matters: Holding At-Fault Drivers Responsible

If you’ve been injured in an automobile collision, your medical bills will add up quickly.  This is especially true if you are still treating.  If those medical expenses exceed the other person’s insurance limits, are we letting the at-fault driver off the hook if we settle for their policy limits?  We are not. The Kentucky […]

Kentucky Car Insurance and AI

I decided to us AI (a.k.a. artificial intelligence) to make a point I’ve about the inadequate limits of car insurance.  Essentially, the Kentucky Motor Vehicle Reparations Act was passed in 1975 and still today.  It’s the governing law for all motor vehicle wrecks that happen in Kentucky.  That act, also known as the KMVRA, established […]

Should I Give a Recorded Statement?

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 […]

Holding Drunk Drivers Accountable: Legal Options After DUI Collisions

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. However, as she indicated she did not think anyone was hurt, the police would not come to the accident scene and/or potentially arrest the drunk driver.  Let […]

Reflecting on Past Injury Cases: Lessons from the Yugo

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, […]

Beware of TV Advertising Lawyers: Why You Shouldn’t Trust Them!

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. I worked at a big, television advertising law firm for over four years.  Guess what? First, those firms have an attitude of arrogance. Why? Because […]

LMPD May Not Show Up for Your Wreck

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 […]

Personal Injury and the Corona Virus

As a personal injury lawyer, I did not expect to have to comment on the coronavirus. However, several phone calls I recently received have made a couple of points worth mentioning. 1)    I am still open and doing business. If you have a legal question about a car accident, I am still answering my cell phone […]

How Do I Get My Car Fixed After a Wreck?

For a moment, put aside the stereotypes you have about car wrecks, attorneys who advertise on TV and insurance companies. Ask yourself this one question, “How do I get my car fixed after a wreck that was not my fault?”  If you think the answer is that the guy who caused the car accident is […]
