Strong Advocacy After You Have Suffered An Injury
Suffering an injury or tragic loss, through no fault of your own, is a frustrating and often overwhelming experience. While you try to get medical help to recover from the accident, you will simultaneously be forced to deal with pressure-filled phone calls and letters from giant insurance companies. This is extremely stressful for regular people because it will feel like trying to speak a foreign language.
At Hicks & Funfsinn, PLLC, our attorneys understand the mix of emotions you will undoubtedly experience after a personal injury or catastrophic accident, as well as the importance for you and your family to focus on your medical treatment, physical recovery or the grieving process. With a combined two decades of experience in personal injury law, you can count on us to take the insurance claims process off your plate and onto ours. We will tirelessly fight to make sure you get what you are owed under the law by the at-fault party or their insurance company. We only get paid if you make a recovery.
Guidance To Help You Move Forward With Your Life
Whether you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, suffered a fall on someone else’s property, or were the victim of medical or nursing home negligence, injuries can happen when you least expect it. Yet, they can have an enormous impact on your life. We work with people suffering from injuries related to:
- Car and trucking accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Catastrophic accident and wrongful death
- Birth injury and medical malpractice
- Premises liability and falls
- Nursing home negligence
In working with our attorneys, we will help to investigate and prepare your case by:
- Filing an insurance claim and notifying all insurance companies of our legal representation
- Collecting documentation, including police reports, medical records, and all other relevant documents
- Gathering and preserving available evidence, including photographs and videos
- Interviewing witnesses and collecting sworn statements
- Preparing your case for trial, even if we ultimately settle it pre-suit or at mediation
We understand that this is a stressful time. We will work hard to answer your questions and put your mind at ease by doing all of the heavy lifting for you. We will assist in preparing your case so that you receive the best possible settlement or jury verdict award to compensate for the injuries and damages you suffered due to someone else’s negligence.
We Won’t Back Down From A Fight
In working with us, you will benefit from the knowledge and experience our attorneys have from their several years defending lawsuits and working for insurance companies. In addition, you will benefit from Josh Hicks’ time in the United States Marine Corps and working as a police officer for five years in Maysville, Kentucky. Similarly, Greg Funfsinn cut his teeth as a criminal prosecutor in Chicago, Illinois, where he handled hundreds of hearings, trials and appeals for cases ranging from DUIs to murders.
Attorneys Josh Hicks and Greg Funfsinn have both previously worked for insurance companies on injury claims in Kentucky. As a result of that experience, we are able to provide strategic insight into the insurance claims handling process, and we know exactly what insurance companies and adjusters are looking for in terms of making and supporting your claim to maximize the value of your case.
Many personal injury cases settle outside of court and before a lawsuit is filed. While negotiating an early settlement is sometimes a preferable conclusion for all parties involved, there are other times where accepting an insurance company’s settlement offer may not be in your best interest. If a settlement is not satisfactory, we will not back down from filing suit and taking the case all the way to trial if we believe that is what is best for you.
