Kentucky Personal Injury Lawyer

Louisville Car Accident Attorney

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious or catastrophic injury as a result of an act of negligence, you have the right to hire a trial lawyer with the ability to get the compensation you deserve. This includes compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other costs.

What Is a Personal Injury Trial Attorney?

It is important to understand the distinction between a regular attorney and a trial attorney, particularly when it comes to personal injury cases. A trial attorney is an attorney who has taken cases to trial, not just negotiated settlements.

This is a critical distinction, because the insurance companies that represent negligent parties in personal injury cases determine the steps they are going to take based on an attorney's preparation and an attorney's reputation. If they are up against an attorney who is clearly prepared to go to trial, with all depositions taken and exhibit lists put together, and that attorney has a long record of success in front of a judge and jury, they are going to see that they are up against a formidable opponent. They are less likely to try to push an unfair settlement and run the risk of losing in court. Of course, if they do push, the trial attorney knows how to push back.

At the office of Joseph C. Souza, member of the law firm of Ackerson & Yann, PLLC, you will find a trial lawyer with more than 35 years of experience handling personal injury cases. He has handled nearly 100 trials, far more than the majority of his peers. You can be confident with that experience on your side.
