Personal injuries can occur in many different ways. A personal injury can be caused by an unsafe product, a poorly maintained building, a motor vehicle collision, a surgical mistake, and other factors. Whatever the cause, a personal injury, in its legal sense, is the result of the actions or inaction of another person or group. If someone else has injured you, our Louisville, Kentucky personal injury attorney, Jason R. Segeleon can determine if you may be entitled to monetary compensation for pain, suffering, lasting disability, and other damages.
In addition to damages awarded for the physical hardship caused by an injury, Kentucky personal injury law also takes into account emotional and financial hardships experienced by the person who has been injured. Courts may also grant punitive damages, which are designed specifically to punish those responsible for causing the injury.
