Car Accidents in Lexington can be Serious.
The Lexington area is home to more than 723,000 people. The two main interstates (I-64 and I-75) bypass the city and that contributes to traffic congestion. Residents know all too well that New Circle Road (KY 4) and Man o’ War Boulevard get congested with traffic every day. Due to the increase in traffic in and around Lexington, car accidents occur frequently. These accidents can range from more moderate to very serious and catastrophic pileups. When an accident occurs, you need an experienced and skilled Lexington car accident lawyer on your side from the very start. Your lawyer will need to investigate all aspects of the accident and clearly establish the liable party. Once the liable party has been established, your attorney will then need to negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf to ensure that you have enough money to pay for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earnings
- Future medical expenses
- Long-term care or rehabilitation
- Physical therapy
- Psychological services
- Pain and suffering
Without an attorney on your side, accident victims are often left to the mercy of insurance adjusters who will likely offer you a settlement that is a fraction of what you deserve.
How Long do I Have to File a Lexington Car Accident Lawsuit?
In the state of Kentucky, you only have two years from the last payment of PIP (“No Fault”) benefits to file your claim. The clock officially begins on the date of the accident, so don’t delay. In addition to missing critical deadlines, delaying your claim makes it more difficult for your attorney to collect valuable evidence after the accident. Eye witnesses can begin to forget important details, damage to vehicles may have already been repaired, and black box data (often utilized in the case of trucking accidents) can be lost or destroyed.
