Kentucky Accidents & Personal Injury

Kentucky accidents and personal injuries can involve a wide variety of events. Personal injury claims are legal claims for damages that arise from and out of the carelessness, negligence, or intentional acts of others, which cause injury to a person. The injuries a person can suffer at the hands of another can be both physical and economic. The injuries that a person may suffer are commonly referred to as damages, and include:

  • medical bills;
  • lost wages;
  • damage to your personal property;
  • pain & suffering;
  • humiliation or mental anguish;
  • a permanent scarring, disfigurement, or impairment;
  • need for future medical treatment; and
  • a loss of life.

Damages are intended by Kentucky law to compensate a person for what happened to them at the hands or fault of another. In Kentucky, damages are intended to attempt to make the injured party whole again or place the injured person in a position as if the injury had not occurred. Because we cannot always erase injuries or put the injured person in a position as if the injury did not happen, the law is designed to afford monetary awards to compensate the injured person for what they have lost and suffered due to the injury. In some cases, punitive damages may also be claimed by the injured person. Punitive damages are meant to punish the wrong doing party for acts that were intentional or grossly reckless.
