Our attorneys handle a variety of injury cases, including:
Do I Have a Case?
Not every accident victim has the case to win compensation. If your
injuries were caused by negligence, recklessness, or an intentional act
by someone, there’s a chance you have a solid case.
Our experienced lawyers can give the thorough, knowledgeable evaluation
of your situation required to determine what you may be owed.
What Is Negligence?
The law in Kentucky defines negligence as the failure to exercise the
due care that a reasonably careful person would exercise in a similar
situation. For example, if the driver of another car fails to stop at a
red light and causes an accident, or causes an accident after running a
stop sign, they have acted negligently, and a court of law could find
them at fault and liable to pay for damages.
If you’ve been the victim of someone else’s negligence, contact us and
we can evaluate your case.
What’s Involved in Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
The many important details of filing a personal injury lawsuit make it a
complex process, so it’s important to have Morgan & Morgan’s resources
behind you to get everything done as painlessly as possible. The opening
steps of this process involve working with a relevant professional to
evaluate your case – for example, our attorneys would work with a
medical professional to determine if you have a legitimate medical
malpractice case. If their investigation determines that you have a
case, your attorney writes a legal complaint and files it in court.
Often, lawsuits get settled before a trial. Our Morgan & Morgan
attorneys in Louisville, however, are experienced trial lawyers. If the
person or corporation you’re suing looks to settle, your lawyer will
evaluate the settlement to see if it is adequate compensation for your
injuries. If they feel it is too low, they can try to negotiate it
higher. If the negotiation stalls, Morgan & Morgan attorneys are
experienced and prepared to bring your case to trial to get you fair
How Much Does a Lawyer Cost?
The idea of paying legal fees for a case that could go to a lengthy
trial can be scary, especially if you’re already dealing with medical
cost. That’s why Morgan & Morgan attorneys work on a contingency-fee
basis. That means your lawyer only receives a legal fee if they
successfully get you a settlement. Often, this fee is a percentage of
the settlement recovered for you.
How Much is My Case Worth?
How much your case is worth can be hard to quantify until we evaluate
your case and fully understand the details of it. Some things you may be
able to get compensated for include:
Medical Expenses: Courts can award compensation to victims for past
and future medical expenses, including rehabilitation expenses, hiring
in-home healthcare aides, and costs not covered by medical insurance.
Lost Wages/Income: If your injury caused you to miss significant
time at work, courts may compensate you an approximation of your lost
Pain and Suffering: You may also be able to recover damages for
physical pain inflicted on you by a person or company’s negligence, as
well as for emotional suffering caused by your injuries.
Punitive Damages: Punitive damages are awarded to punish the
wrongdoing party, to discourage others from causing injuries through
similar conduct. You could be eligible for punitive damages if your
injury was caused by reckless behavior and disregard for your safety. An
example would be someone injured by someone who was texting and driving,
or was driving while drunk.
