Choosing a Louisville Personal Injury Attorney

Trust Bahe Cook Cantley & Nefzger PLC for the Representation You Need

One of the most important decisions you will make if you’ve been injured by someone else’s negligence is choosing the right attorney. You should select a lawyer as soon after your accident as possible. It may seem easy, but choosing an experienced Kentucky personal injury lawyer is extremely important to your case.

What Should I Look for in an Attorney?

After an accident or serious injury, there are a few key factors you should look for in legal representation.

  • Make sure your Kentucky personal injury attorney has all of the following characteristics:
  • First, it is important that your attorney not be a “Jack of All Trades.” Personal injury cases are almost always complex, and the law in this area evolves quickly. Hire a lawyer who devotes his or her practice to personal injury law and litigation.
  • Second, it is important that your attorney be a local trial lawyer, licensed to practice law and currently practicing before the courts of Kentucky and/or Indiana. Many of the lawyers you see advertising on TV are from Florida, New York, and other states. They may not be familiar with Kentucky law and they may not know the local judges, court rules, and insurance lawyers. This can leave you at a great disadvantage.
  • Third, it is important that you have a trial attorney who is willing to file a lawsuit and take your case to trial if necessary. Why would an insurance company settle a case with a lawyer it knows is not willing or able to try the case?
  • Finally, hire an attorney you feel comfortable with and who is honest and upfront with you about your case. It is extremely important to a case that lawyer and client trust and believe in one another.
