For more than 40 years, The Law Office of Paul Guthrie
has handled accident cases in Central and Eastern Kentucky
. Depending on what kind of accident it is, there are different time limits for filing your case. You need to call as soon as possible after you are injured so that a thorough investigation can be conducted, and to make sure these time limits are not missed. If you are hurt in an automobile accident
while on the job, you may have both an automobile accident case and a workers' compensation
case. Types of accidents I work on include:
Another element of damages is your pain and suffering
. This one is harder to put an exact figure on, but is there nonetheless, and in some instances is the biggest part of the case.
These cases are expensive to pursue. Doctors must be paid for their time in giving testimony; court reporters must be paid for transcribing their testimony, and in most instances, taking video of the testimony; other witnesses must be questioned under oath, again involving court reporters; and there are mileage and telephone expenses.
My fee in these cases is generally 1/3. Unless I win, there is no fee at all. Phone or office consultations are also free, so give me a call.
