Ask a Personal Injury Attorney: How & Where Do I File a Lawsuit?, Lexington-Fayette Central, Kentucky

Sometimes, the parties involved in a personal injury claim can’t come to a common agreement, in which case, a lawsuit is appropriate. According to lawyers at Thompson Law Office in Lexington, KY, it’s important to understand how the lawsuit process works, as it isn’t the same as a basic insurance claim. There is a specific protocol to follow, as well as decisions that need to be made that can drastically affect your case, and it’s always best to consult with an attorney if you’re unsure.

Attempting to settle with an insurance company without the advice and assistance of a well-qualified attorney can reduce your recovery by tens of thousands of dollars depending on the value of your claim. There are many pitfalls that come from going into a case alone, and a lawyer will ensure you’re organized and following the necessary steps.

In Kentucky, depending on the type of injury you may have one or two years, so don’t waste any time, especially if you’ve already gone through a failed claim.  Studies have consistently shown that parties who settle claims without attorneys receive much smaller recoveries than those who seek counsel.
