Selecting a Personal Injury Lawyer
Home to Western Kentucky University and the National Corvette Museum, Bowling Green is the county seat of Warren County. The city has over 65,000 residents and is also the fastest growing city in Kentucky. It is a wonderful place to live, work, own a business and/or retire.
Hiring an attorney who knows and understands your area is important, and so is hiring a legal team who has the resources available to investigate accidents and injuries and take cases to trial if necessary.

Bowling Green has done well keeping up with growth by expanding roads, improving intersections and adding traffic signals, however, accidents will happen. After an accident, many insurers work to minimize compensation for accident victims. We work to maximize it. Insurers have good attorneys and you should too.
Accidents occur in Bowling Green for a wide variety of reasons such as distracted driving. Cars have more safety features than ever these days yet the number of accidents keep increasing and that is due to distracted drivers. Drivers are distracted by their phones, text messages and social media accounts. Other accidents are caused by drivers who are under the influence, driving recklessly or other forms of negligence.
Some accidents occur on Bowling Green’s highways such as 31 or 231. The speed limit on Interstate 65 is 70MPH and accidents which occur here can result in serious injury. I-65 is also home to many tractor trailers hauling packages and goods from Indiana to Alabama.

Do I need a police report after a car accident?
