Personal Injury

Navigating the complex system of courts and insurance claims is a daunting task for anyone. People who have suffered from personal injuries are particularly vulnerable, and need skilled and experienced representation. In a 1999 study, the Insurance Research Council found that, on average, injured people who use a lawyer receive three and a half times more money than those who do not.

Based in Louisville Kentucky, the highly experienced legal team at Meinhart, Smith & Manning, PLLC helps people who have suffered from a wide variety of personal injuries – including those caused by negligence, malpractice, and auto accidents – get the compensation they deserve.
