Injury Compensation in Kentucky

Our Kentucky injury law firm gets asked all the time, “How much is my injury claim worth?”

That is a great question and we do not mind you for asking.  The answer is will need to know more before we can provide you with a realistic expectation as to what your injury claim is potentially worth.

The good news is, our Kentucky injury lawyers work on a contingency basis.  So, if we are unable to recover your compensation, you will not owe us a dime.

Let’s look at all of the possibilities of compensation you are entitled to receive if you are injured in Kentucky due to someone else’s negligence.  Injury compensation covers many individual facets.

Medical Bill Compensation

Medical bills

Medical bills can add up fast if you are seriously injured.  When you add up the cost of the ambulance, your hospital stay, doctors, chiropractors, specialists’ fees, and prescriptions it can quickly become a daunting number.

If your injury claim is successful, you will be reimbursed for all medical expenses incurred related to your injury.

Loss of income

Did your injury leave you unable to work?


Or, did you miss some time at work due to your injury?


You are entitled to receive compensation for lost wages if it is a result of your injury.

On-going care

Often, even after incurring all of the medical-related bills during the days, weeks, and months after your injury, you may have on-going rehabilitation costs.


If the reason you are in need of rehabilitation is due to your injury, you are entitled reimbursement for these costs from the responsible party.

Property Damage

When someone is seriously injured in auto accidents, their vehicle is seriously damages also.  We can help guide you to get a rental car and reimbursement to repair or replace the fair market value of your vehicle.

If your property was damaged in the incident that left you injured, you are due compensation for property damage as well.

Rehabilitation Compensation

Additional Injury Compensation You May Be Entitled To

The items noted above are more ‘cut and dry.’

Your medical bills were $XX,XXX.  You should be compensated $XX,XXX for those costs.

Your lost wages totaled $X,XXX.  You should be compensated $X,XXX for those costs.

Below are the additional items you may be entitled compensation for that are much more ambiguous and when you really want a competent, experienced injury lawyer like Christopher Jackson on your side.

Pain and Suffering in Kentucky

Compensation for pain and suffering covers the physical pain related to your injury.  Some pain and suffering damages that might come under this category include aches, temporary and permanent limitations on activity, potential shortening of life, depression or scarring.

Loss of limb

Compensation for loss of a limb would be applicable if you lost an arm, leg, or finger for example.  The compensation for loss of a limb would go over and beyond the cost of medical bills, lost time at work, and rehabilitation costs.

Loss of companionship

Legally referred to as loss of consortium, this applies to serious injuries where your injury has deprived you of the benefits of married life or parenting.  It could also mean your injury has left you unable to show affection.


Having a well-versed lawyer on your side can maximize the compensation you receive for loss of consortium.

Emotional distress

If you experience a highly unpleasant emotional reaction such as anguish, humiliation, or fury, which was a direct result of another’s conduct, compensation may be due.

Emotional Stress

Wrongful Death

We hope wrongful death does not apply to your situation, but families are often in a single-vehicle together.  If another vehicle hits your vehicle hard enough to leave you seriously injured, there is a great change your family members in the vehicle with you were also injured or possibly killed.


If you were left injured and a family member was left dead, you are entitled compensation for their premature death.

Harm to your reputation

Harm to your reputation does not apply as often as many other items noted, but if your reputation was harmed, it could apply.

Punitive Damages

Punitive damages may be awarded if the person who injured you was grossly negligent.  An example would be if you were injured by a severely drunk driver displaying extreme negligence for driving while drunk.
