Car Accidents Resulting in Injury

In Louisville, KY & surrounding counties car accidents are a common occurrence. They can result in serious and even fatal injuries, including brain damage, spinal cord injury, broken bones, burns, scars, and even death.

When you’re injured in a car accident, it can be hard to know where to turn. You may have questions about your rights, whether or not you should file a claim against the other driver, and what steps you need to take after the incident.

If you were injured in a car accident caused by another driver’s negligence, you may have grounds to file a personal injury claim against the other driver’s insurance company. Our attorneys at Mudd Legal Group have handled many such cases, and they know how to prove liability and collect compensation for our clients.

Car accidents can be caused by several factors, including:

  • Driving under the influence

  • Speeding

  • Racing

  • Reckless driving

  • Distracted driving (using your cell phone or texting)

  • Vehicle defects (tires, brakes, etc.)

We understand how devastating an accident can be to your life and the lives of your family. You may be feeling overwhelmed and confused about what your rights are, and how to protect yourself from insurance companies who want to take advantage of you. Our goal is to make sure that you get the compensation you deserve so you can move forward with your life without financial worries.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is an area of personal injury law that involves the negligent treatment of a patient by a doctor, nurse, or other medical professionals.

In Kentucky, medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider fails to exercise the standard of care that would be used by another reasonably careful physician in similar circumstances.

The most common type of medical malpractice claim is negligence—when a doctor fails to use reasonable care and causes an injury to their patient. This includes:

  • Birth injuries

  • Failure to diagnose an illness or injury

  • Prescribing unnecessary testing or treatment

  • Prescribing incorrect medications or dosages

  • Failure to follow up on an initial consultation with patients

  • Performing surgery on the wrong part of a patient’s body

Patients who suffer from these types of injuries can file a medical malpractice lawsuit against their doctor or hospital. The plaintiff must prove that there was an act or omission by the defendant (the health care provider) which caused harm to them as well as damages caused by that act or omission.

If you believe that you are a victim of medical malpractice, contact Mudd Legal Group immediately. Our personal injury lawyers in Louisville, KY & surrounding counties can help you determine whether or not your particular case qualifies for litigation and what kind of damages might be available if it does qualify.

Injuries Due to Negligence

Negligence is when someone fails to act with the standard of care that a reasonable person would have exercised in the same situation. For an individual or company to be held liable for negligence, it must be proven that the defendant owed a duty of care towards the plaintiff and that their failure to perform this duty resulted in harm.

Besides auto accidents and medical malpractice, other common cases of negligence include:

  • Slip and fall injuries

  • Dog bites

  • Defective products

  • Defective equipment

If you’ve been injured by someone else’s negligence, Mudd Legal Group will fight for your rights to ensure that you are compensated appropriately. We understand that these cases can be difficult and we are here to help guide you through this difficult time and make sure your rights are protected.

What Damages Can Be Recovered in a Personal Injury Case?

Personal injury cases are complex and require an understanding of the law, the medical issues, and the financial aspects. The following is a brief overview of some of the damages that can be recovered in a personal injury case in Louisville, KY & surrounding counties.

Medical Expenses

If you have suffered any type of serious injury, such as a broken bone or head injury, you may find yourself unable to work for weeks or months at a time while you recover. As such, medical bills will likely be one of the largest expenses you face if you seek compensation from an insurance company or another party responsible for your injuries.

Lost Wages

If your injuries prevent you from working, then your lost wages may be another source of compensation. Lost wages could include income from employment where you were unable to work due to your injuries as well as loss of future earnings potential if those injuries will affect your ability to work in the future.

Property Damage

Property damage includes any damage done to vehicles or equipment used by an injured party during the incident. For example, if your vehicle was damaged in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible for reimbursement for repairs or replacement costs.

Pain and Suffering

This type of damage award compensates an injured victim for the pain they may have experienced before their injuries were treated and while they were recovering from their injuries. Pain and suffering awards vary greatly depending on how long it takes for the injury to heal after treatment has been completed.

Emotional Distress

Emotional distress damages are awarded to compensate people who have suffered severe emotional trauma as a result of other people’s actions. This may include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from being injured in an accident.
