Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?
Determining if you have a valid claim for compensation depends on the unique facts of your case. Generally, victims who suffer harm and losses due to the negligent or wrongful acts of others have the right to file a civil personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party – and hold them financially responsible for the damages they suffered.
Of course, obtaining full and fair compensation is rarely an easy task; there are many factors that can add complexities to a case. At KCB, we offer free evaluations to review the merits of potential claims, and explain to victims whether they may have cause for legal action, their rights and options, and how we can help.
How Much is My Personal Injury Case Worth?
Claim value is not always immediately clear. Personal injury suits are case-specific, and compensation victims may recover depends on a variety of circumstantial facts, from the severity of injuries and available insurance coverage to whether victims make a full recovery, or are left with lasting deficits.
Generally, damages in a Kentucky personal injury case may include compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Future medical expenses
- Physical pain and suffering
- Lost income / lost future wages
- Permanent disability, impairment, or disfigurement
- Emotional suffering, mental anguish, and grief
- Loss of quality of life, loss of companionship and care
With a network of investigators and experts, we’re able to help clients explore all available avenues for recovering damages, and building the strong and effective claims needed to pursue the maximum compensation possible.

Should I Accept the Insurance Company’s Offer?
In personal injury cases, victims must contend with powerful corporate defendants and insurance carriers who want only to protect their bottom lines, and pay as little as possible. As such, it’s not uncommon for insurers to make low settlement offers that don’t account for victims’ full scope of damages, especially if they suffered serious or permanent injuries.
At KCB, we draw from the insight of medical experts to evaluate victims’ injuries and prognoses, the likelihood of recovery and any long-term or lasting impairments, and what damages they are likely to incur in the future.
This meticulous preparation, along with our reputation as seasoned trial lawyers, enables us to level the playing field with insurance companies, and bring fair settlement values to the negotiation table. Should defendants refuse to make fair offers, we’re ready to fight for our clients at trial.
