Uninsured & Underinsured Motorist

Every accident is distressing, but if you are injured in an accident caused by an uninsured or underinsured motorist, you now have the added stress of not knowing how you will pay your medical bills, damage to your vehicle, or cover lost wages.

While it may be possible to recover some damages from the uninsured/underinsured motorist, few people have the resources to pay such amounts without insurance. If this is the case, your insurance company may cover your damages, however, there are limits to this compensation, and because insurance companies seek to minimize payments, you need an experienced attorney who can guide you through the process and fight to ensure you receive the maximum compensation possible. Contact Winton & Hiestand to discuss your case so you can get on the road to recovery as quickly as possible.


Injured parties may be able to receive compensation for past, present, and future medical bills, lost wages from time off work, diminished capacity to earn, and past and future pain and suffering.

Punitive Damages

In some instances, Kentucky law ALSO allows juries to award punitive damages.

Punitive damages are meant to punish behavior that is intentional and/or grossly negligent to dissuade others from the same behavior.
