Any Lawyer can Accept Personal Injury Cases but Should You Trust Your Case to Just Any Lawyer?

Any Lawyer can Accept Personal Injury Cases but Should You Trust Your Case to Just Any Lawyer?

A lawyer is a good lawyer for whatever you need right? Hmm, not exactly. No more than a doctor is a good doctor for whatever you need. Good luck getting the best treatment for your broken hand from the neurosurgeon. They probably know some general information to treat your hand, but don’t you think it might be just a little bit better to go to the doctor who handles hand injuries every day? It’s the same with personal injury lawyers, folks, and even some of the other personal injury lawyers don’t really know what they should to provide top service and representation to hurt Kentuckians. For example, a client came to me after firing his former personal injury attorney (who I won’t name) and explained the issues relayed to him from his former attorney as to why he could not get a better deal from the insurance company. I started exchanging emails with this other attorney who practices in many areas including personal injury. This other attorney had miscalculated the value of my new client’s claim. Through our exchanges, it became very clear that my client’s former attorney did not understand that 1) degenerative conditions (such as degenerative disc disease) can be pre-existing and asymptomatic (no pain) but can be activated into being symptomatic (feeling pain, sometimes extreme pain) due to a very slight shift in the spine caused by traumatic impact, such as a car accident, AND 2) the fundamental difference between “lost wages” (wages/work missed due to injury) and “loss of earning capacity” (the loss of one’s ability to secure future wages for the rest of one’s life as would have been earned if no injury had occurred). I certainly don’t mean to say I know it all, but we are constantly sharpening our personal injury axe to provide the best service to those hurt in Richmond, KY either in car accidents or injury falls at a business. These mistakes can easily cost you tens of thousands of dollars, or even hundreds of thousands, if you take your injury case to the wrong lawyer who practices a little bit of everything. Since my team’s involvement in the referenced matter, the insurance company has increased their “best and final offer” previously made to the other attorney by 25{2159c586533b4de4af2314f06db22218e2dc39950f3e2c4c92d8844439e44021} (which we immediately rejected) and I intend to at least double the “best and final offer” obtained by my client’s former lawyer. Our involvement will likely lead to about an additional $10,000.00 in our client’s pocket when all is said and done. If you can afford to lose $10,000.00 after an injury then you should go to the other law firms who handle a little bit of everything or who have “armies of lawyers.” If you want your injury case protected from the insurance companies then come to your friendly neighborhood Richmond, KY personal injury lawyer, Rob Morrin. We do things differently at the Morrin Law Office and our clients love the difference! 859-358-0300

Want to Rent an Electric Scooter?  First, Know the Rules!

Want to Rent an Electric Scooter? First, Know the Rules!

Those who are riding a scooter in Lexington, Kentucky are required to obey all applicable traffic laws. A Lexington, KY bicycle and scooter ordinance requires scooter riders to travel at 15 mph or less when operated and to follow the same set of road rules that apply to bicyclists on the roads. Similarly to riding a bike, when riding a scooter one is not required to wear a helmet but every rider should since doing so has been proven to prevent terrible head injuries when there is an accident, as concluded by the Bicyclist Safety on US Roadways report released last month by the National Transportation Safety Board.nnScooters made available to rent are called rideshare scooters or dockless scooters, and they are being used as convenient, clean energy transportation alternatives in cities throughout our nation. Currently in Lexington, Neutron Holdings, Inc. rents “Lime” scooters and Skinny Labs Inc., a subsidiary of Ford Motor Company, is renting out “Spin” scooters to the public.nnScooters are very popular for those who are looking for a clean, convenient transportation fix within city limits, but they can cause serious traffic accidents when a scooter rider is not wearing their helmet and they get hit by a car. This often happens when the person who rented the scooter did not take the time to review the Lexington scooter riding rules or maybe the rider is riding a scooter while drunk, but a serious injury can occur even if the rider was obeying all of the traffic rules and statutes. These injuries are so severe because, for some unknown reason, there is legal no requirement for riders to wear helmets while riding a scooter they rented in Lexington, KY. For this reason, one of the most common injuries are brain injuries and concussions. If you’ve experienced a head injury from a scooter accident or any other car accident then you should be aware of the signs of a traumatic brain injury after an accident so you may treat your injury properly and in a timely manner so you do not permanently lose your cognitive function abilities.nnIf you have hit your head in a scooter or car accident then it’s very important you obtain treatment and professional supervision for 24 hours after your head injury. You may need immediate treatment or you may not display symptoms initially and begin to display serious symptoms within the first 24 hours that were not evident upon your initial examination. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, traumatic brain injuries are the leading cause of death and disabilities in children and young adults in the United States; don’t risk leaving your head injury untreated.nnIf the insurance company will not cover your medical bills after a head injury then contact the Lexington, Kentucky personal injury lawyer who works every day to help injured Kentuckians recover from serious brain injuries. Call or Text 859-358-0300 to determine whether or not you need your own personal injury attorney after your head injury.
