We understand how devastating a serious injury can be for you and those who depend on you.  If you or a loved one has been injured, you are dealing with more than just the injury itself – you are dealing with medical bills, your job and your income may be affected, and you likely are dealing with an insurance company that does not have your best interests at heart.

We can help.  For nearly a decade, David has been successfully representing injured Kentuckians in all types of cases, including:

  • Car accidents
  • Injuries from dangerous premises
  • Injuries from defective products
  • Wrongful death
  • Nursing home neglect and abuse
  • Workplace injuries

If you’ve been seriously injured, you need a serious injury attorney.

If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you are likely in pain, unable to work, unable to take care of your family, and the medical bills are piling up. Fortunately, you are entitled to compensation under Kentucky law for things like lost wages and medical expenses related to the injury.

Unfortunately, insurance companies very rarely offer fair compensation to accident victims willingly. They often try to avoid their responsibilities to injured Kentuckians, leveraging their huge resources against you when you are most vulnerable. We know this from experience, and this is exactly why the Law Office of David A. Schulenberg is here for you.

You don’t have to deal with the big insurance company alone. We have the knowledge, experience, resources and tenacity to get you the full compensation you deserve under the law. Let us fight for you. Don’t wait to get help.

Call our office today and ask to speak with injury attorney David A. Schulenberg, or you can schedule a free no-obligation consultation. We work on a contingency basis, which means we don’t get paid until we get you compensation.

Injury Case FAQ

Why should I choose the Law Office of David A. Schulenberg to represent me in my injury case?

One of the things that sets my law firm apart from a lot of other personal injury firms in Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati is my unique experience in this area of the law.

When I first started my career as an injury attorney many years ago, I worked for a firm that represented insurance companies. It was my job to fight against injured Kentuckians to protect the insurance company’s bottom line. I did not enjoy this experience, but I did learn a lot from it. I know what tricks the insurance companies have up their sleeves.

Today, I only represent injured Kentuckians. For the last several years, I have used my unique experience and inside knowledge from my early career to protect my client’s rights and maximize their recovery. I am passionate about it. I will stand by your side and fight for your rights so that you can focus on getting healthy again and moving forward with your life after your injury.

Our firm is small and lean. This is an advantage. We are small enough to personally care about each of our clients and cases, and we give each case the time and attention it deserves. We do not accept huge volumes of weak cases, and we do not dump cases off on young inexperienced associates. David will personally handle your case from start to finish, and will personally make sure you get the best possible resolution for your case.

What is personal injury?

“Personal injury” is a broad term that encompasses any kind of accident or occurrence that results in bodily injury. It is an area of law that aims to protect those people who are harmed by the negligence, recklessness, malpractice, or inaction of others.

Examples of personal injury include:

  • Car wrecks
  • Construction site accidents
  • Injuries from defective products
  • Motorcycle wrecks
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Slips and falls
  • Truck wrecks
  • Wrongful death

What is a Contingency Fee Arrangement?

A contingency fee arrangement is when an attorney will get paid only if and when he recovers compensation for you, whether through a settlement or jury verdict. Injury victims often need legal representation but lack the means to pay for it. Contingency fee arrangements exist for this reason.

What types of damages can I recover in a personal injury case?

In Kentucky, if you are injured through the fault of another person, you may be able to recover for the following types of damages:

  • Past medical bills
  • Future medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Loss of consortium
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Physical impairment and disability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress

Are personal injury settlements taxable?

Whether you must include settlement proceeds in your income for tax purposes depends on all the facts and circumstances of your case, but the general rule is that settlements in a personal physical injury case are tax-free.  Your attorney can talk to you in more detail about this.  

What is the statute of limitations for injury cases?

The statute of limitations is a law that establishes the timeframe in which you must file your claim for damages.  In Kentucky, the general statute of limitations in a personal injury case is one (1) year from the date of the injury.  However, if the injury was the result of a motor vehicle accident, the time period to file a claim for most damages is extended to two (2) years from the date of the accident or the last PIP payment, whichever is later. 

In any case, it is crucial to contact an attorney as soon as possible after an accident to make sure that your rights are fully protected.
