Louisville, KY (Law Firm Newswire) September 30, 2019 – Louisville personal injury law firm Hessig & Pohl recently obtained a $2.6 million settlement on behalf of a male client who sustained serious injuries after being struck by a commercial vehicle. The motor vehicle accident occurred two years ago in Kentucky.
The settlement has allowed the client to move forward with his life after the horrific collision. Calling the personal injury lawyers at Hessig & Pohl soon after his crash allowed him to pursue compensation for his injuries before the statute of limitations expired. The statute of limitations for a motor vehicle accident in Kentucky is two years from the date of when it took place.
“If you have been hurt in a motor vehicle accident, it’s important to contact an attorney as soon as possible,” commented Rick Hessig, a personal injury attorney at Hessig & Pohl. “Under Kentucky laws, an injured person has a limited amount of time in which to file a claim. This timeframe is known in legal terms as the statute of limitations. Once that period is over, it’s no longer possible to seek compensation for your injuries.”
Motor vehicle accidents in Kentucky involve complex insurance matters that can be difficult to understand without the guidance of an experienced personal injury attorney. Insurance companies are often eager to take recorded statements immediately after an accident. However, speaking to them without first hiring a lawyer can affect the victim’s chances of obtaining fair compensation for their injuries. Contacting an experienced personal injury lawyer immediately after an accident ensures the injured individual’s rights are protected and that valuable evidence remains intact.
Getting injured in a motor vehicle accident is likely to result in pain and suffering and substantial financial losses for the victim, including medical bills, lost wages, vehicle property damage and more.
