You Don’t Have To Go Through This Alone

A serious injury can change your life in an instant. You may end up in the hospital, possibly for a long period of time. You may face a lengthy recovery and rehabilitation period. Bills can pile up, and you may be unable to work. If another person’s negligence is to blame for your injury, a personal injury lawsuit can help you secure the maximum possible compensation to help you pay for the costs of recovery. In Paducah, Kentucky, the attorneys at Edwards & Kautz are prepared to fight on your behalf when you’re at your lowest.


You Are Not the Insurance Company’s Priority

Insurance companies are in the business of making money. Therefore, they’re in the business of not giving you any more than they have to for your claim. If you’ve been injured, your insurance company will often make you a quick offer for an amount that’s likely far less than what you deserve. They know you need the money ASAP and that you’re probably in no position to fight for it yourself.

That’s where we come in. We know the moves insurers are likely to make, and we know how to make a case to argue for more than they will want to give to help pay for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Job retraining (if necessary)
  • Wrongful death benefits, if applicable

You are also entitled to compensation for mental and physical pain and suffering. Call us today at 270-908-4914 or send us an email.

What Should I Do If I Get In An Accident?

It’s normal to feel disoriented and confused after a car crash. You weren’t expecting it, and now you have to pick up the pieces. Where do you even start? Eventually, you will need to call a lawyer. In the immediate aftermath, however, other things are more important:

Get Medical Attention

If you’re injured, your first priority is your physical well-being. If you haven’t already been taken by ambulance, see a doctor who can analyze and document the full extent of your injuries. This is not only good for your health, but it also can help your personal injury claim later in the process.

Document The Scene

If you can, take photos of the crash from all possible angles. Talk to any witnesses, and write down what they saw.

Call The Police, But Don’t Claim Responsibility

The police will need to make an accident report. Even if you think the accident might have been partially your fault, do not say this to the police. It’s possible that the accident was at least partly caused by the other driver. Just stick to the facts as you know them.

Get The Other Driver’s Information

If the other driver didn’t leave the scene, get their insurance information.

Call Your Insurance Company

They will need to know that you’ve been in an accident and will want to send someone out to appraise the damage to your car.

Call A Lawyer

People don’t get into accidents every day. It’s impossible to know exactly what could hurt or help you in these situations. That’s where an attorney can help. To schedule your free initial consultation call one of our car accident attorneys in Paducah, Kentucky.

What’s This Going to Cost Me?

We work on a contingency basis for personal injury cases. That means we are not paid until we win or settle your case. There are no upfront costs for you. You can start your case free from the worry that hiring a lawyer will bankrupt you. It won’t. But trying to fight your way through this alone could.
