PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS
Get the Legal Expertise You Need to Secure Compensation
If you’ve been seriously injured in Kentucky due to negligence or a wrongdoing of another, you may be entitled to financial compensation. The U.S. civil justice system allows victims of injuries to hold wrongdoers accountable. With the help of a Lexington personal injury lawyer from Peterson Law Office, you can secure the compensation you need to aid your recovery process and stop further negligence in its tracks.
Justin Peterson, founder of Peterson Law Office, understands Kentucky laws inside and out. Prior to becoming a personal injury attorney, he represented insurance companies and their insureds at the highest level of litigation. He uses that knowledge now to navigate complex injury cases and help accident victims fight back against insurers and those that use unfair tactics. With knowledge of the opposition, he’s able to secure maximum compensation for his clients.

Regardless of who may have been at fault for your injury—whether it was an individual, a group, or an entity like a corporation—we have the expertise to investigate your case and determine why you were injured and how that injury may have been prevented. In doing so, we can hold the responsible party or parties accountable.
The Benefits of Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit
While it may seem daunting to consider filing a lawsuit, it’s important to remember that by doing so, you may help protect others from getting injured by the person or people that were negligent or committed wrongdoings. Personal injury lawsuits send a powerful message that can’t be ignored and may ensure that a drunk driver, for example, doesn’t get behind the wheel intoxicated again, or that a nursing home changes its hiring procedures to keep residents safe.
In many cases, it may also be possible to file a personal injury claim in addition to any criminal charges in place. During the process of filing a civil claim, your personal injury lawyer may uncover unique details about the case that can help improve future policies or even laws due to the unique way that civil lawsuits tell a victim’s story and sometimes garner public attention.
Finally, the financial benefits of filing a personal injury lawsuit can’t be disregarded. A successful claim can bring a family relief in countless ways. Funds can go towards past, current, and future medical bills in addition to other recovery costs, lost wages, lost earning capacity, pain and suffering, and more. A lawsuit can’t undo the incident itself and the anguish it caused, but it can pave new recovery options and grant peace of mind.
