Is my injury serious enough to file a personal injury claim?

In Kentucky, you have to have more than $1,000.00 in medical bills before you can file a personal injury claim related to a car wreck. Generally, the amount you get for a personal injury case is determined by the amount of medical treatment necessary to treat you. One doctor’s visit isn’t going to make a large personal injury claim, but multiple visits that cause you to miss time from work certainly will. If you have to have surgery or have to be hospitalized, that almost certainly merits a call to a reputable personal injury attorney. If you have unpaid medical bills or lost time from work, remember that insurance is there for a reason.
