What is Maximum Medical Improvement?

A serious accident that results in a major injury can result in a long, complicated process to receive a settlement for a personal injury claim. While the victim may want to receive compensation very quickly to pay for mounting costs of medical care and other expenses, it is in the victim’s best interest to wait. In most situations, it is best to wait for settlement until you have reached maximum medical improvement or MMI. […]

Lump Sum Settlements In Injury Cases

Were you injured in a car accident, fall, or pedestrian accident? Is the insurance adjuster for the other person offering you a lump sum settlement for your case? If so, you need to consider your options carefully before you accept the settlement. Insurance companies understand what accident victims go through after an injury.

Why Is My Health Insurance Company Wanting Me To Pay It Back From My Accident Settlement?

This is a common question our Louisville car accident attorneys hear from many of our clients. The short answer is that your insurance policy has a subrogation clause buried in the fine print. Your insurance agent or employer probably did not explain this clause to you. Therefore, if you have never been injured in an accident until now, you have not had any reason to deal with this clause. However, this one clause can complicate your accident settlement, especially if you are attempting to handle the accident claim without an attorney. […]

Evidence Used In A Large Truck Accident Case

According to information provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 761 people died in crashes on Kentucky roads in 2015. This represents a 13 percent increase in deaths from motor vehicle accidents from 2014. Deaths involving large trucks in Kentucky increased by 19 percent from 68 deaths in 2014 to 81 deaths in 2015. Large truck accidents are extremely dangerous for the occupants of other vehicles. In a large majority of crashes, the passengers of other vehicles sustain the injuries and deaths from the collision. In 2014, occupants of other vehicles comprised 73 percent of the deaths in large truck accidents. Of the people injured in large truck accidents during 2014, 74 percent were passengers of other vehicles. One of the main reasons for the large difference in who sustains the injuries and deaths in a commercial truck accident is the difference in size and weight of the vehicle. A passenger vehicle is no match for a commercial truck in a collision.  The passenger vehicle does not afford the same level of protection that a semi-tractor does for its occupants. Therefore, we see horrific and traumatic injuries for the people in the other vehicles. […]
