 The real reason people hire a lawyer for their injury case is to: 1 Help them with all the requirements to win their case: and 2. To recover as much as possible. That’s it! That’s the bottom line!
Call me and learn what I can do for you.
No charge for initial consultation.

Lawyers used to have more of a connection to their client. They did not have a one time encounter never to meet again. The lawyer had a real concern for his clients.  He would help them again. I still treat people the same way.Others have changed.  The modern, urban, law practice, which views the practice of law and the representation of clients as a business only, now prevails. This type of law firm employs  some lawyers and but more often paralegals to work with clients. They often do a high volume  business, particularly in personal injury. This is how they pay for high cost advertising.

    •  The firm, Adams Hayward & Welsh, has highly experienced attorneys who personally work with you and for you on your case. They have extensive experience in the areas upon which they focus. Al Welsh’s areas most notably, are personal injury, International injury, International Law and International Transactions as wells as Foreign estates and Probate. Also both foreign and United States Medical and Dental malpractice,  Hospital negligence, wrongful death, and Estates  across Kentucky and the region.
    • Al welcomes your call to see how he may help you in resolving your claim and achieving the best possible result. He will tell you what you need to when you are injured by someone else. Although we can’t make up for the personal loss we can and will help you to recover what you deserve. His  firm’s approach to personal injury practice is high-touch and low-volume. Clients with serious, unusual or complex injuries and their consequences are concern.He takes the time to fully assess your case before deciding on a strategy. This is important, as the full extent of an injury may not manifest its self for months after the accident.Al Welsh will answer your questions personally.  He will keep your case moving toward either settlement or litigation and help you focus on putting your life back together.  You will owe him nothing until your case is over.
    • If you have been injured in another country you must not assume anything. International injuries have many  other different aspects than that which we find in the United States. Not only are the laws different but the application of them require an approach that fits the legal system. It is important to talk with competent legal counsel as soon as possible. His  advanced law degree from the University of Brussels, in Belgium gives him insight that others do not have.
    • Mr. Welsh is also a member of the Pan-European Organization of Personal Injury Lawyers. This is an elite society of distinguished personal injury lawyers. Members work in many parts of the world to assist individuals who have been injured.
    • In one  of the most devastating of all events, the  death of a family member, Al Welsh is there to help you through this difficult time. The loss of a loved one can never be truly compensated, however, a recovery can and will assist the survivors.
