Auto accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injuries in the state of Kentucky.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 791 traffic fatalities occurred in Kentucky in 2009 alone.  After seeking medical help, the next step an accident victim should take is to contact a qualified lawyer who can help assess your damages and injuries and guide you through the complex legal process.

Characteristics of an effective auto accident lawyer

Choosing a lawyer can seem like a daunting task, especially if the accident victim is already under the stress of an injury and mounting medical bills.  Some important characteristics of an effective Kentucky automobile accident lawyer include the following:

  • Knowledge:  Choose an attorney who focuses on the type of law that applies to your case.  A good lawyer commands a detailed knowledge of Kentucky car accident law, and is aware of any recent legislation that might affect your case.  An attorney can also detect the ways in which the other party was negligent.  Many auto accidents result from multi-tasking, such as texting or talking on the phone while driving.
  • Performance: An effective lawyer should be able to get the results that clients need to resolve their legal issues, obtain just compensation, and continue with their lives.  An accident victim should select a lawyer with a proven record of accomplishment, both in litigation and negotiation.
  • Customer service: Automobile accident lawyers should maintain frequent communication with their clients regarding the progress of their cases and the options that are available to them.  Accident victims should also make sure their lawyers answer their questions promptly and thoroughly.
  • Honesty: A good attorney can explain all of the options that are available to his or her client, and offer an honest opinion on the advantages and disadvantages of these options.  Lawyers should also speak openly about all fees and costs that the legal process entails.

If you or someone you love suffers injuries due to a car accident, a qualified auto accident lawyer in Kentucky can assist you in obtaining the compensation you need to secure your financial future.
