As a resident of Kentucky, it’s important to stay current on state laws and any proposed bills that could be coming into law in the coming year. That way, you understand what you need to do to continue being a law-abiding citizen. When you don’t stay up-to-date on new legislature, you could end up breaking the law without even knowing.
If you’re planning on filing a lawsuit for a personal injury, your lawyer will advise you on how the case is likely to proceed. Most lawsuits go through a complaint, motions, answers, discovery, and a trial. At any point during that process, there is the potential for a settlement to be reached. If, however, that doesn’t happen and the case proceeds to trial, a judge or jury will make an official determination.
Sometimes, the defendant may try to convince the court to dismiss your claim. This can be done with or without prejudice. With prejudice means you cannot refile your claim, while without prejudice means you will have the opportunity to file at a later date. There’s also the possibility the court could dismiss your claim on its own volition. Either way, you’ll want to have an idea of what your options are in the event your lawsuit is dismissed.
When you’ve been injured because of the negligent actions of others, you can file a personal injury claim. With this action, you’re standing up for your rights to compensation and will hold the person accountable for their negligence. While you may think this automatically means your case will go to court, there are a few steps before that phase. It’s possible you may settle your case out of court.
This situation has a few advantages and disadvantages. However, when you’re pursuing legal action, you should always have representation on your side. A personal injury lawyer from Golden Law Office will explain your options to you so you can decide on how to proceed that best fits your interests.
Before making a decision, you should have the information about out-of-court settlements and how they may be beneficial and when you may want to consider other options.
As we head into a new decade, it’s important to be aware of the 2020 law changes coming to Kentucky. While many of the newly submitted laws won’t take effect until later in the year, understanding the potential implications and your obligations as a resident of the state are crucial. Some of the law changes you should be aware of include modifications to the ignition interlock license system, a new tobacco purchase age limit, and vision testing for driver’s license renewals.

My lawyer Bryan Daley and Justin Peterson worked on my automobile injury case which they both did an excellent job handling all of the medical liens to get me the most money possible and I would like to thank them both for all of their hard work. I would recommend them to anyone that is in need of a legal counsel.

I hired Dale Golden to represent my son when he broke his ankle in a slip and fall. We had incredible opposition and yet Dale was able to anticipate and plan for contingencies that I hadn't even thought about - His experience as a civil defense attorney proved invaluable. He guided us and kept us very informed through the entire process. We were very pleased with our result and my son will graduate from college debt free! As a former insurance claim adjuster, I would highly recommend Golden Law Office!

Drew meadows went above and beyond on my case and I could not be more pleased. He was professional, kept me updated, and was so pleasant. He even called to see if I needed anything. I will never use another firm as long as I live. He was able to settle our case at a sum that was much more than expected. My mother is currently fighting an fmla case and I absolutely won’t hear of her seeing anyone else. They’re truly the very best.

I could not have had an easier process with my case. I contacted the office, came in gave my side of what happened and from there they took over. I only had to give testimony and signatures. Very impressed with all the people that I was interacting with. I would highly recommend to anyone!

I highly recommend, and just can’t say enough about Golden Law Office! I would give this Law firm six stars if I could! Justin Peterson, Dale Golden, and their staff do all they can to make sure their clients come first, and will fight to get the highest amount their clients deserve when representing them. I have been working with them for over two years, and they have went out of their way to make sure I understand every step in the process of getting me compensated for a injury I sustained at a motel. The owner, their attorney, and the insurance company did everything they could to get out of compensation for the injury I sustained, but Justin Peterson, just worked harder to win the case. Justin Peterson has told me since the day we met how sorry he is that this happened to me, and any time I had a question or problem, he, and the staff have been available to take my call, and if not, have returned my calls in a timely manor. Dale Golden even stood in for me, because of an illness at the mediation hearing. That, and everything this Law Office has done on my behalf has really meant the world to me, and you won’t find a better law firm to represent you in my opinion. Thank you Golden Law Office!!!

Excellent! Having never needed an attorney before, I found the legal system incredibly intimidating and overwhelming. James Yoder provided excellent representation; he stayed in constant communication, took time to patiently explain each step of the process, and answered every question I had. His diligence took so much stress off my plate. I cannot recommend Golden Law Office enough - Ask for James!

I was very pleased with Golden Law office. I had never been involved in litigation before and with all of the ridiculous law firm commercials you never know what you may get. Thankfully Golden Law office was none of those. Professionalism was exhibited during all phases of my case. I truly appreciate their work, and customer service ethic.
