What is a Personal Injury?
Simply put, if you were hurt because of another person’s or party’s negligence, and your injury resulted in damages, you can file a personal injury claim against that party. Your damages may include medical bills, property damages, lost wages, and even pain and suffering.
Regardless of whether you were harmed physically, financially, emotionally, or psychologically, you deserve compensation if someone else’s mistakes caused you to suffer. And when it comes to getting compensation, you deserve to be paid in full.
If you were hurt through no fault of your own and you’re wondering if you have an injury claim, there’s no risk in contacting us and letting us know what happened. Our Lexington personal injury lawyers will review the facts of your case and then work hard to gather evidence, prove fault, and help you get the settlement you deserve.
10 Cases We Handle at Our Lexington Office
Injuries can happen anywhere and at any time. At Sam Aguiar Injury Lawyers, we have years of experience building all types of injury claims. No matter when, where, or how our clients get injured, it’s our goal to be their trusted and aggressive legal advocates.
The National Safety Council says that nearly 5 million people are injured in car accidents every year. Car crashes are one of the most common causes of serious injuries—and serious personal injury claims. Our team works hard to help injured car accident victims move forward with their lives after crashes that weren’t their fault.
Dogs are man’s best friend, but all dogs can bite and cause serious injuries. In today’s world, dogs are welcome in more and more places. Unfortunately, that can lead to more dog bites than ever. If you or someone you love was bitten by a dog, we want to help you get compensation for your injuries.
Insurance – Bad Faith
Insurance companies are interested in protecting their profits—not paying fair settlements to injured victims. Unfortunately, some insurance companies go too far in denying victims the money they’re owed by violating their own terms, excessively delaying payouts, or even threatening claimants. Our Lexington personal injury lawyers hold insurers accountable for their actions, especially when they harm our clients’ recoveries.
Motorcycle accidents are often devastating for even the most well-equipped riders. Broken bones, head and neck injuries, road rash, and even the loss of fingers and toes are all common in motorcycle crashes. These accidents typically result in huge medical bills and long periods away from work, and our lawyers work hard to help victims get the money they deserve for their damages.
Whether you walk in downtown Lexington, your neighborhood, or just while out running errands, you shouldn’t have to worry about negligent drivers hitting you. Unfortunately, countless people are seriously injured by drivers while walking in Lexington every year. It’s our goal to fight for these victims’ rights when they contact us to take on their injury claims.
Police officers are supposed to protect and serve, but sometimes, police officers make mistakes that seriously harm or even kill others. When police officers behave negligently, the consequences can be devastating for victims and their families. Our legal team isn’t afraid to stand up to police departments and officers when innocent people are harmed or killed.
Slip and Fall
Slips and falls are played for laughs in movies and television shows, but in real life, they’re no laughing matter. They can result in serious and disabling injuries, and victims often incur expensive medical bills and temporary or permanent disability. When slips and falls are due to negligent property upkeep and maintenance, we hold the property owners or managers liable for our clients’ damages.
Fully loaded semi-trucks can outweigh the average passenger vehicles by around 75,000 pounds. That means when they’re involved in crashes with sedans, SUVs, and pickup trucks, the drivers and passengers in those vehicles are extremely likely to suffer severe injuries. Truck accident claims require extensive experience and knowledge of the law, and we’ve got both to help our clients.
Workers’ compensation helps injured workers get the money they need to take care of themselves and their families after suffering on-the-job injuries. Unfortunately, getting approved for these benefits is often extremely difficult and time-consuming. Our lawyers know Kentucky’s workers’ compensation application process, and we help our clients get the benefits they’re owed as quickly as possible.
Losing a loved one is devastating no matter how it happens. But when their death is because of someone else’s negligence, it can make the loss even more difficult to bear. The wrongful death lawyers at our firm know how difficult this is for grieving families, and we build claims with sensitivity, compassion, and a strong desire for justice for our clients.
Why Should You File a Damages Claim after an Injury?
It’s not fair to pay for an injury that wasn’t your fault. And in the case of many injuries, the expenses can be significant. You may be on the hook for medical bills that health insurance won’t cover, you may miss weeks, months, or even years of paychecks, and you may experience a major decrease in your quality of life.
Unless you seek compensation for your losses, you’ll be paying for those expenses out of pocket. Even the most financially well-off families can find it hard to stay afloat in the face of this sudden whirlwind of bills and lost income. In the case of your pain and suffering, you’ll receive no recourse for your inability to enjoy time with family, friends, and hobbies.
How Can a Lawyer Help You Get the Money You’re Owed?
After an injury, you’ve got enough on your plate already. Your focus should be on getting better—not trying to build your own injury claim. When you hire a lawyer, you won’t have to worry about collecting evidence, calculating expenses, or going back and forth with the insurance company. Instead, your lawyer will do it for you.
At Sam Aguiar Injury Lawyers, our Lexington personal injury lawyers have years of experience building successful injury claims. We know how they work, and we know what insurance companies do to avoid paying fair settlements. We stay one step ahead of them throughout the entire process, and that helps maximize our clients’ chances of getting every penny they’re owed.
