Personal Injury Attorney in Richmond KY
A personal injury lawyer is an attorney who represents people who have been injured because of the negligence of someone else. This area of law is known as tort law. For any type of claim of negligence, four basic elements must be met. 1) Duty, a third party owed you a legal duty (for example, obeying traffic laws, providing a safe environment, etc.); 2) Breach, that third party acted or failed to act in a way that was a breach of the duty owed to you; 3) Causation, that breach of duty actually caused your injuries and it was forseeable that such a breach would cause such injuries; and 4) Damages, you have actually injuries for which you can be compensated. A personal injury lawyer knows how to present your case and meet these elements so that you can get compensated for your injuries.
Car Wreck Lawyer Richmond
The vast majority of car accidents occur because someone is violating a state law. Whether it is speeding, driving under the influence, texting, following too closely, changing lanes without a blinker, running a stop sign, or some other infraction, liability (who is at fault) is generally pretty clear because of the violation. In these situations, duty and breach of duty are typically non-issues. Your case will mostly be about your injuries, whether they were caused by the accident or were pre-existing, whether they are temporary or permanent, and the amount of compensation you should receive for those injuries. If you have been injured in a car wreck, you should consult with an experienced car accident attorney like Tyler Roberts. Tyler has litigated cases in Madison County and has litigated car wreck cases with various types of liability issues and injuries.
Slip and Fall Lawyer Richmond
Slip and fall cases, also known as premises liability cases, are generally more difficult cases than car wreck cases because duty and breach of duty are almost always the primary issues of the case. A landowner or land possessor has a duty to maintain reasonably safe premises for its customers. That means they have a duty to make sure nothing dangerous exists on the premises and if there is something dangerous, to warn customers about it. That’s why you see wet floor signs. If the floor is wet, and the employees of the store knew or should know that the floor is wet, then they have a duty to dry the floor and/or put up wet floor signs. If they properly do those things, then they fulfilled their duty to customers and are generally not liable if you fall in that area. Due to the complexity of slip and fall cases, it is important that you hire an attorney with ample experience with slip and fall cases. Attorney Tyler Roberts has litigated numerous slip and fall cases, including cases in Madison County, with various types of liability issues. You have one year from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit, so please do not wait.

Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Richmond
Motorcycle accidents are typically caused by another driver breaching his or her duty owed to the biker by texting and driving, speeding, failing to yield the right of way, or following too closely. Because of the inherent dangers of motorcycles, bikers are about 4 times more likely to get injured in an accident than drivers and passengers of cars and about 20 times more likely to die. If you or a loved one have been injured in a motorcycle accident due to the negligent driving of another person, please contact a personal injury lawyer to get you the compensation you deserve.
