London Injury Attorney
A large portion of the law practice at the Cessna & George Law Firm is devoted to helping people who have been injured by the negligence or wrongful conduct of another. Our comprehensive London personal injury practice represents victims of motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall, medical malpractice, nursing home negligence, and workplace accidents in Southeast Kentucky. We help people disabled from working get social security benefits, and we help people injured on the job get workers’ compensation. We also bring wrongful death actions after a fatal injury for the benefit of the family left behind to pick up the pieces after a loved one has been wrongfully and tragically taken from them.
Whether negotiating a settlement with the insurance company or battling them in court, we work to achieve much-needed compensation for our clients whose lives have been turned upside down by another’s negligence or misconduct. Insurance companies try to shift the blame onto the victims to reduce the amount they owe, or they dispute how serious the victim’s injuries really are. They might even try to settle the claim quickly for far less than it is worth before the victim has had a chance to visit with a personal injury lawyer.
At the Cessna & George Law Firm, we don’t let the insurance companies get away with their tricks or shortchange you when you are in need. You can count on us to bring dedication, skill, knowledge and experience to the task of recovering significant and valuable compensation to help you deal with the medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and other legal damages another’s negligence has inflicted on you and your family.

Auto, Motorcycle and Truck Accident Cases
In Kentucky, auto accident victims who have opted for no-fault insurance can get up to $10,000 in benefits after an accident without having to prove the other driver was at fault. Crash victims who opted out of no-fault insurance will need to make a claim against the other driver to get benefits. Even victims with no-fault insurance can sue a negligent driver when their injuries are serious enough to meet one of the following conditions:
- Medical bills are over $1,000
- Fracture or broken bone
- Permanent disfigurement
- Permanent injury
- Permanent loss of a body function
The Cessna & George Law Firm helps auto accident victims recover compensation from the negligent driver in auto, motorcycle and truck accident cases in London and Southeast Kentucky. We fight to prove that the other driver was at fault while deflecting unfounded allegations of blame leveled at you by the other driver’s insurance company. We also know how to document and prove the full amount of damages due to you after a serious accident.
After an injury at work, employees can and should reach for workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits cover all reasonable and necessary expenses and make up about two-thirds of the employees’ wages while they are out of work or permanently disabled. Insurance carriers can make it hard to receive benefits by arguing the injury occurred outside of work or forcing the employee to go through biased medical exams that say the injury isn’t serious or the employee has healed up enough to go back to work. Our Kentucky workers’ compensation attorneys can help you get benefits when they have been unfairly denied, unreasonably delayed, or terminated prematurely.
Injuries on the job might also be caused by a third party unconnected with the employer. Examples include car accidents that occur on the clock, slip and fall injuries while working off-site, or injuries caused by defective products, tools, machinery or equipment. In situations like these, injured workers might have third-party negligence claims in addition to a workers’ compensation claim.
As experienced personal injury attorneys who represent victims in motor vehicle accidents and slip and fall accidents throughout Southeastern Kentucky, we can also pursue civil negligence claims when a third party is responsible for your injuries. By representing you on both fronts, we can maximize the compensation available to you to deal with the injury and disruption to your life you are suffering.
Call Cessna & George Now to Protect Your Rights
Kentucky is one of only three states that have a one-year statute of limitations for personal injury claims. This is the filing deadline should you need to file a lawsuit to get a financial recovery for your injury. It is essential to meet with an attorney soon after the accident to make sure this important deadline is not missed. The insurance company might lead you to believe you can handle this on your own, but while you are busy recovering from your injuries and putting your life back in order, the insurance company is dragging out negotiations with offers, counteroffers, repeated requests for documentation and medical exams, and more.
The time can quickly slip away from you, so act now to contact an attorney to preserve valuable evidence, get appropriate medical care, meet important deadlines, and get compensation for your injuries at the earliest appropriate time.
