What Is Kentucky’s Statute Of Limitations?
In Kentucky, you have only one year from the time of your injury to pursue most personal injury lawsuits. For motor vehicle accidents, the statute of limitations is two years, but there are exceptions to that rule that extend that deadline. After the statute of limitations for your type of injury has passed, you forfeit your right to take any action.
The “discovery of harm” rule comes into effect when an injury is not immediately apparent at the time of the accident. This rule can allow your statute of limitations to accrue when you “discover” the injury, if you could not reasonably have discovered the injury at the time it occurred.
With only one year to begin your court battle, you will want a capable and accessible team on speed dial. At Gilbert Law Group PLLC, we are always available to talk with you, because we know how important it is to have someone on your side in times of need.
When you give us a call during our business hours, there will always be a voice on the other end of the line to assist you. After hours, leave us a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Types Of Personal Injury Cases We Handle
Not all cases have merit. There are a lot of details that will factor into your case. We recommend writing down the details of your case prior to contacting us so that you can maintain a clear memory of the incident.
Remembering small details is very helpful when trying to establish liability. We will want to sit down with you and talk through your story to see if it is worth pursuing.
We understand that the last thing you need after a devastating accident is another financial risk. That is why we work on a contingency fee basis. We won’t get paid for our services unless we win you financial compensation.
Comparative Negligence In Kentucky
The state of Kentucky honors comparative negligence, which means that the courts allow the plaintiff to receive a percentage of damages depending on how much the other parties were at fault.
Example Of Comparative Negligence
For example, if you were running through a grocery store, but slipped on an unmarked spill, the courts may decide you were partially responsible for the accident. This does not disqualify you from a payout, but it does mean that the court may reduce your compensation.
At Gilbert Law Group PLLC, we want to help you navigate the complicated world of personal injury law. Let us advise, advocate, and assist you in seeking the compensation you deserve. We operate on a contingency fee basis, so you won’t need to pay us unless you receive money from a settlement or verdict.
