Damages You Can Recover in Personal Injury Cases

When filing a personal injury case, there are three main types of damages an injury victim can pursue, economic damages, non-economic damages and punitive damages. Economic damages, as the name suggests, seek to compensate the injured party for their financial losses associated with their injury such as medical expenses or missed workdays.

Non-economic damages, on the other hand, compensates for non-financial suffering such as pain and suffering, or mental anguish. The only type of damages that seeks to do anything other than compensate the injury victim is punitive damages. Instead the purpose of these damages is to punish the negligent party, as such they are not often awarded.

  • Work Accidents

    We represent people hurt while working on the river or in river-related employment. We also serve victims of construction accidents, including welders, insulators, boat repair and maintenance workers, and others whose construction work pertains to the area’s robust river industry. It is important for injured river workers, injured construction workers, and other injured workers to realize that they may not have traditional workers’ compensation claims and that they should work with an attorney who is knowledgeable about their industry and the laws that apply. In some instances, other remedies may be available that provide better benefits than traditional workers’ compensation.

  • Premises Liability

    Property owners, including owners of businesses like shopping malls, retail stores, grocery stores, gas stations, and hotels, have a duty to keep their premises reasonably safe.

Personal Injury Statute of Limitations in KY

Personal injury cases have statutes of limitations, which impose strict deadlines on how long you have to file a lawsuit. Different type of claims have different statutes of limitations, and statutes of limitations also vary by state.

This means if you file a claim after the statute of limitations has passed, you will most likely be unable to hold negligent parties responsible and recover damages.

In Kentucky, the statute of limitations for injury cases depends upon the source of the injury. Injury claims arising from an auto accident have a two year statute of limitations, whereas personal injuries arising from other causes generally must be filed within one (1) year.

Our attorneys are able to work swiftly to file the necessary paperwork and build your case before this deadline passes.
