Car Wreck Attorney in Lexington
The no-fault laws in Lexington and throughout Kentucky allow the injured to seek compensation for the injuries they’ve sustained in a car accident, regardless of who is at fault. But that’s not always as easy as it sounds. Insurance companies often try to minimize costs by denying claims or offering lowball settlements, making it particularly challenging for the plaintiff to get the settlement they deserve. That’s where Morgan and Morgan comes in to hold such parties accountable and force them to do the right thing; compensate you for the injuries or losses you’ve sustained. If that’s what you need, contact us today for a free case evaluation.

Do I Still Need a Car Wreck Lawyer if I Already Have PIP Insurance?
Yes, no doubt that having PIP insurance is beneficial. This type of insurance is designed to help you obtain compensation quickly. However, you might still need a car wreck lawyer, especially if the following are true:
- Your injuries are severe.
- You’re seeking non-economic damages such as pain and suffering from the other party.
- You’re dealing with insurance disputes.
- You want to pursue compensation beyond what PIP covers.
In Lexington, if your injuries meet the state’s tort threshold, which includes at least $1,000 in medical expenses deriving the car wreck, permanent disfigurement, a broken bone, and permanent injury, or death, the law allows you to “step outside” the no-fault system. This option opens the door for additional compensation beyond what your PIP insurance covers (medical bills and lost wages).
How Can a Car Wreck Attorney in Lexington Help?
An experienced attorney will evaluate your case to determine whether it is valid, gather crucial evidence to support the case, determine who is liable for the accident, develop effective legal strategies (such as where and when to file a claim), negotiate with insurance companies for fair settlements, and file a lawsuit if necessary to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
What Should I Look for in a Car Wreck Lawyer in Lexington?
A great attorney should have years of experience in handling similar cases. They must also have access to powerful legal resources to handle your case, given that car wreck cases are often stressful and complicated. The attorney’s track record of achieving favorable results for clients and their reputation within the legal community for being knowledgeable and reliable is also critical.
What Is the Deadline for Filing a Car Wreck Lawsuit in Lexington?
You only have two years from the date of the accident to sue. When that deadline passes, and you haven’t yet filed a lawsuit (assuming the case didn’t settle), you may lose your right to seek compensation.
Who Can I Sue After a Car Wreck?
It depends on the specifics of your case. Generally, and where applicable, you can bring lawsuits against at-fault drivers, their employers, vehicle manufacturers in cases of faulty equipment, government agencies, third-party contractors, and potentially other parties connected to the accident.
