Flora Templeton Stuart represented a young widow, Mary R. with children who had lost her husband in a tragic motorcycle accident. He was killed instantly when a commercial vehicle pulled in front of him on the highway. Our firm hired accident reconstructionists to establish that the wreck was the fault of the commercial vehicle who denied liability claiming that our client was speeding when he was struck by the defendant’s vehicle. Our firm litigated this case in federal court and after being offered nothing settled the case for over a million dollars prior to trial. Justice was served when our firm collected lifetime support for his widow and children.

Several types of insurance coverage will pay if you are injured in a personal injury case:
Homeowners Insurance: If you are injured due to the negligence of a homeowner which can be due to a dog bite, gunshot wound, slip and fall then the homeowner policy of the property owner may pay damages if the accident was not your fault and the fault of the homeowner and you sustained injury. Homowners coverage often limits of $300,000.00
Premises/Business Liability: If you sustained an injury at a place of business on their premises through the fault of the business owner you can collect damages from the insurance coverage. These cases often involve premises liability where you sustain injury from a slip and fall. The amount of that coverage can be considerable since it is commercial insurance.
Health Insurance: Your own health insurance which can include private insurance, Medicaid or Medicare will usually pay your medical bills in the event of an injury and is paid back from a recovery that you have against the defendant.
Short-Term/Long-Term Disability: You may have private coverage for short-term or long-term disability if you are disabled from a personal injury accident.

To best serve our clients our Kentucky/Tennessee personal injury attorneys provide legal services on a contingency fee basis, meaning that you pay nothing unless we win. Clients will never pay up front fees, legal fees, or case costs out of pocket. Instead, our attorneys handle cases free of charge until a settlement has been reached.
The amount of money an injured persona recovers after an accident is based on several factors which include:
An injured person who has been injured in a vehicle collision in Kentucky has two years from the date of the collision which can be extended by payment of PIP (Personal Injury Protection benefits) to file suit. In Tennessee, you only have one year in a vehicle collision. All other personal injury case types such as slip and fall, dog bite, and non-vehicle accidents have one year to file suit in Kentucky and Tennessee or be forever barred. Minors have until the age of 18 to begin time running for the statute of limitations.
At Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers the average time to complete a PI case from state to finish without going to court is usually four to six months. If the suit is filed the case may settle at mediation within a year, but if there is a trial or litigation it can take much longer at our firm. The great majority of our cases settle out of court and are resolved within six months.
