Do I Qualify for Compensation?

To recover compensation in a personal injury claim, you will have to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. This is known as satisfying the burden of proof. For example, if you were hurt in a car accident, you will have to prove that your accident was caused by another driver who was speeding, texting while driving, driving while under the influence, or otherwise behaving negligently or disregarding the rules and regulations of the road.

What Damages Am I Entitled To?

As long as you and your lawyer can satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim, you should receive compensation to help you deal with two types of damages: economic and non-economic. Examples of economic damages can include:

  • Medical bills, such as those pertaining to the cost of surgeries, overnights in a hospital, medication, rehabilitation, and more.
  • The cost of past and future wages from being unable to return to work as a result of an injury.
  • The cost of any property damaged in an accident.

Non-economic damages, on the other hand, may include the following:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Emotional trauma
  • Loss of companionship or guidance (in the case of wrongful death)

The Statute of Limitations in Kentucky

The statute of limitations for most personal injury claims in the state of Kentucky is one year. This means that accident victims are required, by law, to file their personal injury claims within one year of the date their accident happened. Though this may seem like a lot of time, the truth is that it is always best to retain the services of a seasoned personal injury lawyer as soon as you can. The sooner you reach out to our firm, the sooner we can get started fighting for your rightful compensation.

Social Security Disability Benefits

Sometimes, a serious injury can impact a person permanently, thereby preventing them from ever returning to work again. In this case, they may consider applying for Social Security Disability benefits.

That said, you should know that receiving Social Security Disability Insurance is a long, drawn-out process, and most people are denied when first applying for benefits. The Social Security Administration defines disability as the “inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity (SGA) by reason of medically determinable physical or mental impairment(s) which can be expected to result in death or which has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months.

For this reason, it is paramount that you retain the services of a dedicated personal injury lawyer who has significant experience handling these claims and can help prove your case. Note that in SSDI and SSI cases, lawyer’s fees are federally regulated by the Social Security Administration. When benefits are determined, the legal expenses come out of the benefits payment. If you have any questions about the process or believe you may qualify for benefits, simply reach out to Shane Hall, Attorney at Law, PLLC for answers.
