Louisville Ranks Seventh Most Dangerous City for Pedestrians.

Pedestrians At Risk

Pedestrians At Risk

The Louisville Courier Journal reports on the disturbing results reached in a report by the Transportation for America and Surface Transportation Policy Project.  The report ranked the 13 county Louisville and Southern Indiana area seventh most dangerous for walking.  The report concluded that the most dangerous areas are dominated by sprawling suburban developments that favor automobiles.

While many of the articles contributors considered the report concerning, there apparently wasn’t any agreement on what to do about it.  You can read the entire article discussing Louisville pedestrian injuries and deaths here.

Remember if you’ve been injured as a pedestrian as the result of a car, motorcycle, or truck accident you are entitled to the same rights of recovery as someone injured while driving a car.  Often, these injuries are more severe, since they lack the protection afforded by a car.  These injuries are often permanent and debilitating, requiring lengthy and expensive medical treatment.  You should seek the services of a qualified Kentucky accident attorney if you are a pedestrian struck by a car, motorcycle or truck to make sure your rights to recover for serious personal injury are protected.

Pain After A Car Accident Is Not Unusual And Should Be Treated.

Pain After A Car Accident Is Not Uncommon

Pain After A Car Accident Is Not Uncommon

It is very common to experience pain several hours after a car accident.  Don’t think just because you don’t feel pain immediately, that you aren’t injured.  Injuries to muscles, ligaments, and tendons may not manifest themselves immediately.  Often inflammation is the first sign of an injury to these tissues, and inflammation may take time to develop.  Once it does, you will experience pain and discomfort that may interfere with your ability to function.

These types of injuries are well known to medical professionals who treat car accident injuries.  You might hear terms like “soft tissue” or “whiplash” injury.  Make no mistake, however, these are objective injuries that cause pain and require treatment to overcome.

If you’ve been in a car accident and experience pain some time later, seek treatment as soon as possible.  Most likely your injuries will only worsen with time.  Just because your medical treatment takes place some time after the accident, does not affect your entitlement to PIP benefits.  Insurance companies are well aware that these types of injuries may manifest themselves after an accident and won’t usually hassle you about seeking treatment later.  If you are not being treated fairly by an insurance company responsible for paying PIP or for reimbursing your property damage or bodily injury claim, you may need to seek the services of an experienced Kentucky accident attorney or lawyer to get you the benefits you deserve.

Make Sure Your Kentucky Accident Attorney Is An Experienced Trial Attorney

Hire An Experienced Trial Attorney

Hire An Experienced Trial Attorney

Not everyone involved in a Kentucky car, truck, or motorcycle accident will need a Kentucky Accident Attorney.  However, if you have suffered lost wages, incurred serious medical expenses over $1,000.00, or have been left permanently impaired or unable to work, you will.  If you are in need of a qualified accident attorney, you might wonder; “What type of attorney should I hire?”, or “What separates the many attorneys I see advertising?”

There are many factors to consider in retaining a qualified accident attorney; however, probably the most important factor that separates most accident attorneys is trial experience.  Trial attorneys, also called litigators, are attorneys who have experience in handling accident or injury claims that have resulted in a lawsuit at the courthouse.  While all experienced attorneys will try to settle your Kentucky accident claim, every claim has the potential to result in a lawsuit.  Only if you and the insurance company agree will your claim be settled.

Many accident attorneys will gladly sign up your case and attempt to settle it; however, you will quickly find that once settlement negotiations break down, they quickly refer your case to an entirely new attorney to handle the lawsuit.  So, if you are seeking a Kentucky accident attorney, make sure that your Kentucky accident attorney is an experienced trial attorney, who is willing to file a lawsuit to fight for your rights to compensation when the insurance company refuses to be fair.
