Schuler Law Office
Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Accident Victim Representation in Louisville, KY
David Schuler at Schuler Law Office is dedicated to helping people hurt in accidents. If you live in Kentucky and have been injured in an accident, or a loved one has suffered a wrongful death, call our office. We work hard to get due compensation for your injuries. We engage in negotiations with insurance carriers and insurance defense attorneys and take your case to mediation or trial, if necessary.
Your world is turned upside down when you get injured — your professional and personal life can get put on hold. Your focus may become healing and rehabilitation, putting the otherwise normal course of your life aside momentarily. In the case of a wrongful death, grieving and closure are important to those left behind. The time after an accident doesn’t have to be chaotic. Put your trust in our office and skilled attorneys to give you the relief you need.
Your first question after an accident is likely “what do I do now?” Immediately seek a medical opinion of the injuries sustained, and keep track of the facts while they are fresh in your memory. Journal the events leading up to the accident and the events of the accident itself. Make a list of witnesses and record their names and phone numbers. Give an accurate report to authorities about the facts and circumstances of the accident and obtain copies of those reports. Most important, contact a personal injury lawyer to ensure you file a claim on time. In Kentucky, you have one short year to file a suit for damages resulting from an accident. Our office handles accidents of all types, including:
- Car and truck accidents
- Motorcycle wrecks
- Tractor-trailer accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Wrongful death
- Injuries from defective products
- Slip and falls
- On-the-job injuries
The injuries that can result from these types of accidents range from the less severe soft tissue injury to the more catastrophic head and spinal cord injury often associated with a motorcycle accident. We even handle matters that ultimately result in the death of the injured person.
When you are injured through the negligent act of another, you need just compensation for your injuries. If you are the victim of a personal injury accident, call an experienced Kentucky personal injury attorney who is skilled in cases like yours.
