Frequently Asked Legal Questions
What areas do you practice?
I represent people and families who have suffered injuries and catastrophic losses of loved ones, whether the injured person is a driver, passenger or pedestrian, whether an adult or child, and no matter how the accident occurred, including:
- Car Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Public Transportation Injuries
- Pedestrian Injuries
- Bicycle Accidents
- Hit and Runs
- Alcohol Related Crashes
Sometimes having a workplace injury is simply a matter of getting you signed up for workers compensation. Sometimes, however, your injury is more complicated than that. You may be involved in an auto or truck accident while you are working, or harmed by a faulty product, and in those situations you may have a claim for workers compensation and for additional compensation from a third party—not your employer—who is to blame for your injury. I can help you with those situations.

Where will the money come from to pay my bills?
An accident can require you to deal with many problems, and many layers of insurance, that you may never have known existed before you were injured.
- A typical auto accident victim in Kentucky will have immediate problems with medical expenses, pain and suffering, inability to work and/or to carry on usual daily activities, damage to automobile and future needs. The possible sources of recovery available in such a situation include:
- The no fault/PIP insurance that attaches to the vehicle in which the injured party was traveling (or by which the injured party was struck if a pedestrian or cyclist).
- The liability insurance that is carried by the person responsible for the accident;
- The personal assets of the person responsible for the accident, if insurance is inadequate;
- the health insurance of the accident victim or the family of the victim;
- the underinsured or uninsured motorist coverage of the accident victim and the victim’s family members;
- many other insurance and personal assets that are available in unique situations, such as the policies that cover corporate employers of accident victims and of those responsible for accidents.
Which insurance or assets you tap into at a particular point in time, and how you tap into those assets, can have a drastic bearing on the ultimate results of your particular situation.
What is no fault/PIP insurance?
If you have been injured in an accident in Kentucky, and the driver of the vehicle that you were riding in – even if it is you – has insurance, then in most cases, you will have what is called “no fault” or PIP (personal injury protection) insurance.
This insurance is in addition to the insurance that allows you to recover from the person who is at fault for the accident, and it is immediately accessible, without any determination about who is at fault.
It will pay, with minimum insurance, up to $10,000 of your immediate expenses such as medical bills, lost earning (up to a limit per week) and other out of pocket expenses such as prescriptions and transportation.
We can help you get set up with that insurance immediately, and I will charge you nothing whatsoever for that assistance if I take your case.
What do I have to pay for you to take my case?
NO RECOVERY NO FEE. I WORK ON A CONTINGENCY BASIS – NO CHARGE IF NO RECOVERY. IF I DO RECOVER, YOU PAY ME A PERCENTAGE OF WHAT YOU RECOVER. COURT COSTS AND CASE EXPENSES WILL BE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CLIENT. THEY WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM THE RECOVERY AND YOU WILL PAY ME NOTHING IF I CANNOT RECOVER FOR YOU.
