I've Been Injured, Now What?

After an accident in Kentucky, the legal process of filing a personal injury claim is one that experienced attorneys know how to navigate. In the State of Kentucky, the statute of limitations for filing personal injury claims due to an automobile accident is two years from the date of the injury. After two years has passed, you can no longer bring a legal claim for the injuries you sustained as a result of the accident.

Top 4 Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury in Kentucky

A traumatic brain injury can dramatically change the life of the injured as well as the lives of their loved ones. Every year in the U.S., 2.5 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI), and thousands of these incidents occur in Kentucky annually. Traumatic brain injuries disrupt your brain's normal function, making it difficult to function normally. TBIs fall under one of two types: closed or penetrating. Closed trauma occurs when an injury causes the brain to shake around in the head, but there are no visible wounds. Penetrating trauma occurs when the brain is pierced by an external object like a bullet or a knife.

First Offense DUI in Kentucky: What's Going to Happen to Me?

Penalties for first offense Driving Under the Influence (DUI) in Kentucky can be harsh, particularly if there are any aggravating factors. Even accomplished criminal defense attorneys can fail to understand the intricacies of DUI law. That's why it's important to work with a lawyer with specific DUI experience who is able to navigate the many unique issues. Kentucky takes seriously the prosecution of those accused of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If you are arrested for suspicion of DUI you will be given an opportunity to contact a lawyer, and it is important to make an informed decision before taking a breath or blood test. If you are charged with DUI, the potential penalties depend on the circumstances of your case.
