TYPES OF PERSONAL INJURY CASES
There are a number of different types of cases where someone is injured due to the fault of
someone else. In addition to car accidents, this can include motorcycle, semi-truck, slip and
fall, dog bites, wrongful death, and work related injuries.
MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
Vehicles all bring with them a unique risk of injury. Often, these personal injury claims stem
from the negligence of another driver. Whatever the causes of the crash, they can lead to lifelong
damage to someone. Even accidents that might seem like they’re not that bad can require
long-term medical care.
Plaintiffs often file motor vehicle accident lawsuits to get compensation for medical bills and
future medical expenses, such as rehabilitation. There are also damages potentially available for
lost time at work, and the physical and emotional suffering endured.
SLIP & FALL ACCIDENTS AND PREMISES LIABILITY
Property owners have a duty to ensure that dangerous conditions are repaired or cleaned before
injuries can happen. But all too often, conditions such as standing water, ice, and uneven
walking surfaces are ignored or fixed improperly. When this happens, innocent people slip and
fall, suffering painful injuries that require expensive medical treatment and leave them unable to work.
At Flora Templeton Stuart Injury Lawyers, our Bowling Green attorneys are here to help if
you or a loved were injured in a slip and fall accident caused by a property owner’s negligence.
From investigating who is responsible for your fall, to filing time-sensitive claim paperwork on
your behalf, we’re here to help you get the compensation you need.
Few things in life are more painful than unexpectedly losing a loved one. And if your loved
one’s death is caused by the misconduct of another person or entity, you may be wondering
where you can turn for help. At Flora Templeton Stuart Injury Lawyers, our Kentucky wrongful
death attorneys have experience helping families through some of the most difficult times
in life, and we’re here to assist you.
Family tragedies require time to heal, but bills and other monetary concerns related to your
loved one’s death can leave your family facing financial uncertainty. Our legal team will work
hard to hold the person responsible for your family member’s death accountable, so you can
focus on your family.
Animal owners have a responsibility to keep their dogs and animals under control–but that
doesn’t always happen. Unfortunately, about 4.5 million people in the U.S. are bitten by dogs
each year. Victims can face severe physical pain and life-altering psychological consequences.
If you’ve been bitten by a dog or animal that was not properly trained or controlled, you have
the right to fair compensation for your pain and suffering. At Flora Templeton Stuart Injury
Lawyers, we don’t think you should have to pay for an animal owner’s negligence. We know the
law, and our Bowling Green dog bite lawyers will fight to hold the animal owner responsible
for your injuries.
To a person not familiar with the Kentucky Workers’ Compensation system, it can seem like
a confusing maze of insurance rules. Part of the reason for this is that it’s in your employer’s
workers’ compensation carrier’s best interest to reduce the amount of money spent on a claim.
If you choose to face the system alone, you may not get the full amount of benefits you deserve.
At Flora Templeton Stuart Injury Lawyers, our Kentucky workers’ compensation lawyers know
the law, and we’re here to assist you through every step of the claims process.
SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY FOR OUR INJURED CLIENTS
At Flora Templeton Stuart Injury Lawyers, We handle Social Security Disability claims for our
seriously injured clients. If you have a disability that prevents you from working, you may be
able to receive benefits from the Social Security Administration.
The Social Security disability claims process can take a year or more. You should file a claim
for Social Security disability benefits immediately. If the condition stems from a work-related
injury, don’t wait until your worker’s compensation ends. If you are entitled to sick leave
or disability income insurance from your employer, don’t wait until that income is exhausted
before you explore how to get disability. Even if you are unsure if you will satisfy the disability
requirements, don’t put off applying.
