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 […]

In a Wreck with a Drunk Driver

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 […]

Remember 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, […]

Don’t Trust The Television Advertising Lawyers!

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 […]

How Do I Get My Car Fixed After a Wreck?

15 Pieces of Legal Advice that I say often as a personal injury lawyer.

1) Get rid of any deductible you have against your no-fault or PIP coverage. You CAN NOT recover that deductible from the at-fault’s insurance company, and you might have saved $30 a year for a deductible that just cost you $1,000. 2) You can use either your own car insurance, i.e. your collision coverage, or […]
