When you’ve suffered harm in an accident, recovering the benefits you deserve can be frustrating, especially when your claim is disputed by the insurance companies involved. Since 1992, the firm of Michael D. Lindsey in Bowling Green has been going head to head with insurers on behalf of injured clients, both in negotiations and in court. If you’ve been hurt at work, in a car accident, on someone else’s property or in another situation, I can fight to obtain the compensation you need to pay medical bills, make up for lost wages and handle other expenses stemming from your injuries.
Whether you are dealing with your own carrier or making a third-party claim, insurance companies have it in their interest to pay out as little as possible to claimants. This puts anyone without an experienced lawyer at a disadvantage. When I represent you in the claims process, I bring to the table:
The insurance company is not looking out for your best interest, and I can be by your side as you face off against a hostile opponent.
A big part of being a successful negotiator is being prepared to go to trial. As a seasoned personal injury litigator, I can gauge the probability of success of a claim in court and can use that knowledge to leverage a favorable settlement, either before or after a lawsuit is filed.
I am fully familiar with the steps needed to protect your right to go to trial. The personal injury time limit for filing a claim in Kentucky is strict — only one year from the date the injury took place. Insurance companies may use delaying tactics to try to frustrate a victim’s claim, but I can make sure your claim is filed and negotiated in a timely manner so that insurers cannot put your legal case in jeopardy.
From the moment you retain my firm, I will be fully engaged in the investigation and processing of your claim with a view toward achieving the most optimal recovery possible.
Negotiating with a powerful insurance company can be daunting without the help of a personal injury attorney familiar with the process. To set up your free initial consultation in Bowling Green, call Michael D. Lindsey at 270-282-4710 or contact me online.
