Video Transcript:
Hi, folks, Rob Morrin here, Kentucky’s personal injury attorney. I’m here in Richmond, Kentucky, my hometown, on Water Street. Here to talk to you about what happens if you’re actually crossing the street or walking on the sidewalk. What happens when a vehicle actually hits you, or maybe hits somebody you love, and they’re in the ER, and you need to figure out how you’re going to pay medical bills? First of all, you need to contact a professional who handles these kinds of claims every day, because we need to get notices out to the insurance companies. Sometimes I need to figure out, okay, if it’s a hit and run, I need to contact this bank here and get the surveillance video footage to figure out who actually caused the damage. So if you’re actually walking on the sidewalk, crossing the street, and you get injured, whether it’s a fall or you’re hit by a motor vehicle, contact somebody who does this every day.
