Experienced injury lawyers in Richmond assist Central Kentucky accident victims
Luxon & Himes, PLLC represents personal injury victims and their families in central Kentucky. Your health, job, family and entire future can be affected when you have been injured. You need a caring, supportive advocate who can help you negotiate with insurance companies and arrange for medical care that does not require payment until your case is resolved. Your goal is to get better, and our goal is to protect your rights and help you obtain the full, fair and complete compensation you deserve.
Aggressive advocates work to hold negligent parties accountable
Personal injuries are serious matters, and no two cases are alike. In litigation stemming from vehicle collisions, falls, medical malpractice, defective products and other examples of dangerous carelessness, our clients receive personalized attention and regular updates on the progress of their case, including detailed advice on:
- Legal standards — Kentucky law allows only one year from the date of an injury for a victim to file a lawsuit seeking appropriate relief. Acting quickly is also important to make sure that critical witnesses and evidence can be located. When handling these matters, we rely on subject matter experts where necessary to show that defendants violated their legal duty of care, causing significant physical harm to the plaintiff.
- Compensation — When a personal injury verdict is returned in the victim’s favor, damages can address medical costs, lost wages, rehabilitation expenses and the physical and emotional pain experienced by the plaintiff. As experienced advocates in this area, we know how to assess the potential value of particular claims accurately and use this information to guide us during settlement negotiations.
- Types of injuries — Whether your situation involves a traumatic brain injury, broken bones, internal damage or potentially permanent harm such as paralysis or disfigurement, we work diligently to present a comprehensive argument concerning your current and future medical condition.
Our staff’s commitment to providing clients with one-on-one service enables them to focus on getting well and getting back to their day-to-day lives while we take care of their important legal needs. In addition to handling personal injury claims, our firm also handles workers’ compensation matters when someone is hurt in the course of their job duties and Social Security Disability filings when a victim’s injury prevents them from returning to work for at least a year.
Skillful accident attorneys assist people hurt in vehicle collisions
At any time, you or someone you love could have their life changed by a car accident. It might be difficult to grasp the nature of Kentucky’s choice no-fault insurance system, but we negotiate with carriers and explain when your policy or the circumstances of your situation allow you to file a lawsuit directly against a negligent driver. Our firm vigorously pursues full financial recovery for clients in all types of vehicle collision actions, including those linked to truck, motorcycle, bicycle and pedestrian accidents.
Dedicated lawyers litigate injury cases arising from dog bites
Kentucky’s dog bite statute declares that a pet owner is responsible for any injury or property damage that their animal causes. This is true even if the person didn’t have any reason to believe that their dog posed a threat. We thoroughly review the harm that resulted from the attack and seek full compensation during settlement negotiations or at trial. If a defendant tries to limit their liability by claiming that the victim bears partial or complete fault for the incident because they were taunting the animal or engaging in other unsafe conduct, our litigators will push back aggressively against unsupported assertions.
Compassionate legal counselors handle wrongful death claims
If someone dies due to another’s negligence or willful misconduct, the representative of the victim’s estate is authorized to file a wrongful death action within one year of the fatality. Though it can be difficult to think about financial matters after a tragic loss resulting from a vehicle accident, incidence of medical malpractice or some other event, our firm delivers effective, compassionate guidance in these cases. State law determines how a recovery must be divided based on which family members survive the decedent. Damages that are recoverable in court include compensation for funeral expenses, income the victim would have earned throughout their life and the loss of companionship suffered by loved ones.
