The county seat of Scott County, Kentucky is Georgetown. The area was settled by a Baptist preacher, Elijah Craig, in 1782 and it was named George Town in 1790 in honor of George Washington. The official name was changed to Georgetown in 1846. The town is home to Georgetown College, which was the predecessor of Royal Springs Academy, founded by Elijah Craig in 1787. In 1829, the college was established as the first Baptist college west of the Alleghenies. Among other historic homes, farms and buildings in town, is Ward Hall. This beautiful 12,000-square-foot Greek revival antebellum mansion was built around 1857 by Junius Ward as his family’s summer home; their primary home being located on a plantation in Washington County, Mississippi.

Roberts Law Office recently represented a client in a slip and fall case against a business in Scott County that allowed for the existence of an unsafe condition on its premises. The business was having renovations done to the exterior of its building and blocked access to all handicapped parking spaces. The client was forced to park in a spot where there was a hole and because of the construction, there was no lighting. The client stepped in the hole and fell, causing some injuries to the knee. We were able to ensure that medical bills were paid, force the business to fix the hole, add lighting, and clear the handicapped spots, and secure a five-figure settlement for the client.
