Car Accidents - two cars crashing

Kentucky Car Accident Lawyer

All car accidents can be tough. But if you are harmed with serious injuries, life can take a nasty turn. You may require months, even years of medical and rehabilitation care. Health insurance does not always pay all of these bills in full. You have the right to seek monetary compensation if you were injured due to someone else's negligence.

At The Law Office of Christopher Jackson, we will make sure you understand your rights and will provide compassionate, yet assertive legal representation to help you move past this trying time. We can aggressively pursue compensation from the negligent driver's insurance company. Christopher Jackson uses his years of litigation experience, since 2003, along with his network of resources, to help you win your case.

Negligent Car Crashes Are Caused By:

  • The other driver not paying attention
  • Texting while driving
  • Running a red light
  • Talking on the phone
  • Distracted driving
  • Not following at a safe distance
  • Turning left in front of oncoming traffic
  • Rear-end collisions
  • Head-on collisions

Insurance companies start working on automobile accident cases immediately, and the insurance adjuster may try and convince you to settle early and for a low amount. Always speak to an experienced car accident injury attorney before you talk with an insurance adjuster.

Car accident lawyer Christopher Jackson knows that it is important to gather all necessary evidence, including photos, witnesses, etc., before making any settlement decisions. Christopher Jackson will hold off the insurance company until you've had time to heal properly under your doctor's care. "You go to the doctor, and we will take care of everything else." — Christopher Jackson

Don't Let The Insurance Company Minimize Your Loss

The job of your car accident attorney is to make sure you get the maximum money you are owed. The insurance company adjuster will try to twist your words in their advantage to make it seem like you were not injured.

Types Of Car Accidents Include:

Christopher Jackson's unwavering commitment to client results means that we won't settle until we recover enough money to pay your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other expenses.

As an experienced car accident injury attorney, Christopher Jackson knows how to get the money you deserve in and out of the courtroom. Our success is built on a foundation of getting results for our clients, and we're committed from day one to making that happen.

If you were involved in an auto accident that was caused by another driver's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Compensation may either be economic (medical bills and lost wages) or noneconomic (pain and suffering), and may include the following, depending on the specific circumstances of your case:

  • Medical expenses — past and future
  • Hospital bills and medication
  • Rehabilitation
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium (loss of a spouse or child)
  • Past and future lost income or wages
  • Pain and suffering already experienced or likely to be
    experienced
  • Property damage — auto repair or replacement, depending on the circumstances
  • Car rental and towing when appropriate
  • Others — ask attorney Christopher Jackson

Car Accident Statute Of Limitations

If you were involved in an automobile accident in Kentucky, it is essential to know that, in Kentucky, there is generally a one-year statute of limitations (in some circumstances, there may only be 30 days). However, for car accidents, the statute of limitations is two years and can be extended to two years after the date of the last PIP payment. Legal actions must be filed during this time to protect your rights to compensation. It is in your best interest to proceed with any legal actions as soon as is possible. Remember that we can always file a claim first and try to settle out of court. If we are unable to reach a fair amount out of court, then we can discuss filing a lawsuit and going to court.

When we take your motor vehicle accident case, we don't just settle for the
easiest amount we can get. We know that you're relying on us to help make sure you have the resources you need now and in the future with medical expenses and lost wages. As a law firm with a proven record, we are driven to succeed for our clients. Contact us today via phone or email to request a free

He made sure I understood everything and if I didn’t he explained things to me. His character showed that he was not just in this business for the money. He genuinely cares for his clients and their outcome with the case. Would definitely recommend him.

  • review rating 5  We hired Chris to help us when we were involved in an automobile accident and were injured. The other driver's insurance company was giving us the run around up until that point. Chris was able to make sure that all of our bills were covered and we received a fair settlement. His assistant Sheila was awesome to work with throughout the process as well. I highly recommend!
