Personal Injury Litigation
Louisville, Kentucky Personal Injury Lawyers
Personal injury refers to an injury suffered by one person as a result of the negligent acts of another. An injured person is entitled to receive compensation that reflects the amount of their financial loss as well as the seriousness of their injuries. When a loved one dies as a result of the negligent acts of another, personal injury actions become wrongful death cases, and the estate is entitled to recovery for the wrongs committed. At DeMoisey Law Office, we know that personal injury and wrongful death cases have a devastating impact on victims and families. We will handle your case with care and skill and treat you and your family with the sensitivity, dignity, and respect you deserve.
At DeMoisey Law Office, we represent individuals involved in many types of personal injury and wrongful death cases to include car and motorcycle wrecks, employment discrimination, civil rights abuses, dangerous premises and slip and fall cases, defective products cases as well as other types of negligence. Our approach is proactive and aggressive. If we are not able to satisfactorily settle a case, we do not hesitate to vigorously pursue your case in a court of law. Our experience and skilled trial advocacy has resulted in many significant verdicts in both personal injury and wrongful death cases.
In all cases, we work closely with our clients to ensure their rights are protected. When pursuing personal injury litigation, this relationship is particularly important. A primary ally that the defense has on its side is time, and civil defense attorneys are well versed in using this to their advantage. They expect the personal injury plaintiff to eventually run out of money or patience or both. Cases that might otherwise be successful if pursued to conclusion, often fail for no other reason than the plaintiff team lacks the will, resources, or cohesion to remain strong and unified throughout what can be a long and difficult process.
At DeMoisey Law Office, we proactively address these issues by making you an active member of a unified team effort from the very beginning of our involvement in your case. We remain in close contact with you, communicate with you regularly to keep you informed and seek your input in all decisions that are made. We keep the effort focused, organized, and moving forward toward the goal. We have the energy and enthusiasm as well as the experience and resources to defeat delaying and other tactics of the defense, all of which are designed to make you give up. We will actively represent you and pursue your case to its conclusion, protecting your rights and making sure that you receive all the benefits to which you are entitled by law. Our firm has extensive experience in dealing with insurance companies. We aggressively pursue the justice and compensation that you deserve.
Car Wreck Cases – Louisville, Kentucky Car Wreck Lawyers
Automobile accidents are the most common type of personal injury cases in our court system. When a person fails to exercise reasonable care while operating a motor vehicle, and another person is injured as a result, it is considered negligence. Car wrecks, motorcycle accidents, and wrecks involving tractor trailer and semi trucks can have a devastating impact on your life. Your ability to work, pay your bills, and take care of your children and family can be drastically affected through no fault of your own.
Damages for which an injured person may be entitled include medical bills, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and in some cases, punitive damages. In most cases, the driver at fault will refer the matter to their insurance company. The sole objective of the insurance company is to pay out as little as possible, often trying to get you to accept a settlement that is not in your best interest, before you have the opportunity to retain legal counsel.

Civil Rights Abuse Cases – Louisville, Kentucky Civil Rights Lawyers
The Constitution of the United States and the Kentucky Constitution grant citizens the fundamental rights that define life in a free society. It is troubling and unfortunate that sometimes governmental entities, police departments and officers, municipal officials, and state prisons and county jails violate these important, fundamental rights granted under our Constitutional laws. Every citizen has the right to be free from the exercise of arbitrary power, unreasonable search and seizure, and cruel and unusual punishment. Every citizen has the right to equal protection and due process of law.

Products Liability Cases – Louisville, Kentucky Defective Products Lawyers
Injuries from dangerous and defective products are a reality of life. Unfortunately, businesses and corporations do not always have their customers’ best interests in mind when they design, manufacture, and sell products. Injuries from these defective products are often catastrophic, causing brain injuries, amputations, burns, chemical poisoning, loss of sight, paralysis, and death. Product liability cases can involve pharmaceutical drugs and devices; defective machinery, automobiles, and aircraft; and defective household and personal use items like household appliances, sporting goods, and toys.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a dog attack, our experienced team of lawyers can help you take legal action.
