Can you explain how no-fault insurance works?

A recent Google visitor to our firm asked this common question from Kentucky drivers who are involved in a car accident. Kentucky law requires drivers to purchase and maintain car insurance. Kentucky is a "no-fault" state. No-fault takes the form of "personal injury protection" (PIP) benefits, which pay up to $10,000 for medical bills, lost wages and similar "out-of-pocket" costs resulting from the policyholder's car accident injuries. These benefits are referred to as "no-fault" as they are paid regardless of who caused the accident.p_price_auto_policy_494087582.jpg

Questions to Ask When Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney

We all know the stereotypes. Pop culture has formed a less-than-flattering image of some lawyers that only look out for easy cases to make a quick buck. That reputation hurts the vast majority of the profession, who actually do have their clients' best interests at heart.

Injured from a Fall? Know Your Legal Rights

The secret to a successful personal injury practice may rest equally on the cases that are accepted and those that are not. The vast majority of serious injury cases do not present with the four sides of the perfect square necessary for success-liability, causation, damages and coverage-completed and aligned. We, as lawyers, analyze the cases, identify the problems and find practical solutions. If the client does not have a clear liability case, we must figure out rather quickly whether there are both the facts and the legal theories which will support recovery. This difficult initial decision is particularly challenging when it comes to premises liability cases.fall-sign.png

Preventing Deer Collisions

According to the National Highway Safety Administration, there are approximately 1.5 million deer related automobile accidents each year in the United States. Kentucky experienced a very wet July and August this year. Those months are usually high stress periods for Kentucky's deer population. Because of the change in weather patterns, it is expected Kentucky's deer population will increase this fall. "October, November, and December account for more than half of all reported deer-vehicle collisions," said Deneatra Henderson, chief engineer for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's Madisonville office. Here are some tips from the Cabinet as we enter this busy season:

Deciding when to put a loved one in a nursing home

There is a lot of negative stigma behind putting a loved one in a nursing home. Some of it is well-earned since they are notoriously short-staffed and often do not give their staff the training they need. Other homes strive to provide quality care when family and friends simply can’t.

Yes, good nursing homes exist. Follow our guide to find the best fit for your loved one.

Maybe your family has already been in this all too familiar situation. Your loved one, who has been healthy and self-sufficient her entire life, suddenly falls ill. You are told by the hospital that she needs to be transferred to a nursing home for rehabilitation and this needs to happen tomorrow. What do you do?
