Some accidents are unavoidable, but many others are caused by negligence and can be prevented. If you or a loved one suffered an injury in an accident caused by another’s actions, you should consult an experienced Covington personal injury lawyer.
The personal injury attorneys at O’Connor, Acciani & Levy have been helping victims of negligence recover fair compensation for more than 30 years. We offer a free, no obligation consultation and we work on a contingency fee basis, so we do not receive compensation unless our clients do first.
Types of Accidents and Injuries Caused By Negligence
Our attorneys in Covington take on personal injury claims involving many kinds of accidents and other situations where negligence caused people to get injured, including:
These situations can cause various injuries, from minor to severe and possibly life-threatening, including:
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Lost limbs
- Broken bones
- Internal bleeding
- Neck injuries
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Psychological trauma
- Loss or impairment of hearing
- Loss or impairment of vision
- Head injuries
- Damage to tendons or ligaments
In some cases, it can take months or years for victims to physically and emotionally recover from these kinds of injuries. In other cases, victims will never make a full recovery, no matter how much medical treatment and physical therapy they receive.
However, while the physical impact of these injuries can be devastating, the financial impact can be just as bad, if not worse. The cost of doctor’s visits, prescription drugs, surgeries, physical therapy and other medical expenses can easily put a person into debt.
Also, severe injuries often prevent people from working or force them to reduce the number of hours they work. This can be financially devastating when medical expenses are piling up and people are trying to support themselves and their families.
Fortunately, victims of accidents that were caused by negligence may be able to recover compensation to help provide some financial stability as they attempt to recover from their injuries.
Contact our attorneys for a free, no-obligation legal consultation to find out your legal options during this difficult time. If you are entitled to compensation, we will aggressively pursue everything you are owed.
Investigating Your Personal Injury Case
When you contact our Covington lawyers, we will carefully review the details of your injuries and your accident to determine if you have a legitimate personal injury claim.
If you have a valid claim, we will begin a comprehensive investigation to build the strongest case we can while you focus on recovering from your injuries.
We will collect all of the important evidence, some of which could include:
- Pictures and medical documentation of your injuries
- Police reports on the accident
- Any other accident reports that have been filed
- Records on the accused party to find past examples of negligence
- Eyewitness accounts of the accident
If necessary, we can consult medical experts to help us prove how negligence contributed to your injuries. Medical experts can also explain all of the ways that your injuries affect you on a daily basis.

Our Covington personal injury attorneys will aggressively fight for all of the compensation you are entitled, such as:
- Past, current and future medical bills
