Personal Injury

Accidents happen, but many times those accidents cause severe physical or psychological injuries that may result in incapacitation.

 

When accidents occur due to the negligence or fault of others, the injured party may be entitled to monetary compensation from the person whose negligent conduct caused the injury.

 

I provide accidental injury victims with the professional and ethical representation needed to protect your legal rights, pay your medicals and help you receive any punitive compensatory damages you are entitled to.

  • Medical Malpractice

    Medical malpractice cases arise when a medical patient has been injured through the improper action (or inaction) of a healthcare professional or medical facility.

     

    Medical malpractice is professional negligence by act or omission by a health care provider in which care provided deviates from accepted standards of practice in the medical community and causes injury or death to the patient. Standards and regulations for medical malpractice may vary by state. Medical professionals are required to maintain professional liability insurance to offset the risk and costs of lawsuits based on medical malpractice.

     

    Damages

    Damages may include compensatory and punitive damages. Compensatory damages are both economic and non-economic. Economic damages include financial losses such as lost wages (sometimes called lost earning capacity), medical expenses and life care expenses. These damages may be assessed for past and future losses. Non-economic damages are assessed for the injury itself: physical and psychological harm, such as loss of vision, loss of a limb or organ, the reduced enjoyment of life due to a disability or loss of a loved one, severe pain and emotional distress. Punitive damages are only awarded in the event of wanton and reckless conduct.

  • Brain Injury

    Injuries to the lower back and to the neck can be devastating.  If a doctor tells you that you need surgery to fix a back problem, you should contact an attorney.  It takes special knowledge and skill to be able to get the evidence you need in a workers' compensation claim or an accident lawsuit to be able to prove that the accident you had at work caused your back pain.  Back injuries can cause permanent restrictions in what you can lift and carry, and so can change forever the type of work you are able to do.  As a Kentucky Back Injury lawyer, I have handled many cases involving:

     

    • Lower Back Surgery
    • Neck Surgery
    • Spinal Fractures
    • Herniated Discs
    • Lumbar Discectomy
    • Lumbar Fusion
    • Cervical Discectomy
    • Cervical Fusion

     

    Insurance companies often argue that your back injury and the need for having surgery on your back was caused by a pre-existing condition, such as degenerative disc disease.  If you did not have medical treatment for the condition before the injury for which you are seeking compensation, however, the insurance company should not be able to deny responsibility.

     

    Consult with me, Peter Naake, a Kentucky Spine Surgery attorney, about what effect a back surgery or neck surgery can have on your workers' compensation case or auto accident case. I offer flexible office hours and can travel to meet you.  Brain Injury claims are handled on a contingency fee basis. You do not owe attorney fees unless I am able to obtain benefits and compensation on your behalf.*

  • Third Party Liability - a.k.a -

    “Slip and Fall”

    A “slip and fall” or “trip and fall” is the generic term for an injury which occurs when someone slips, trips or falls as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property.  The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control estimates that more than 8 million people are injured in falls yearly. Victims can suffer from serious injuries as a result of a fall.  Common causes of slip and fall accidents are:

     

    • Wet or sticky floors
    • Stairwells, escalators, & elevators
    • Icy and untreated sidewalks
    • Cracked, broken, raised, & uneven sidewalks or pavements

     

    I offer free initial consultations to discuss your 3rd party liability "slip and fall" claim. To schedule yours contact me today. I offer flexible office hours and can travel to meet you.  Slip and fall claims are handled on a contingency fee basis. You do not owe attorney fees unless I am able to obtain benefits and compensation on your behalf.*
