Crocker Law Firm represents people who have been injured
At Crocker Law Firm we help people who have been hurt and families of people who have been killed in accidents. We help a lot of people who have been injured in car wrecks, but we also help people who have been hurt in other ways, including people who have been hurt at work.
You face so many pressures after an injury or death, including financial pressures from medical bills and lost income. Our main priority is to get you a fair settlement or judgment as quickly as we can so that you can move on with your life.
We also help eliminate other worries. We take care of paperwork and coordinate payment of your medical bills. We direct insurance adjusters to call us, and to send requests for information or documents to us, so that you can focus on getting better.
Personal injury and wrongful death claims are complex, but we can explain the law in a way that makes it easy to understand. It is important to us that you are informed and included in the decisions that will affect your life. Our clients let us know that it is important to them too, as you can see in our Google and Facebook reviews.

Frequently Asked Questions
You might have after an injury
1. Is there a charge to talk to you before I hire you?
There is no charge to talk to us on the phone or to meet with us in person to discuss your case. You have not hired us, and will not owe us any fees, until you sign a representation agreement (contract) making us your lawyers. That agreement will spell out that our fees and expenses are paid from the money you get in settlement or judgment when that money is received.
2. What Will I be Charged if I Hire Crocker Law Firm to Represent Me?
At Crocker Law Firm our fees are contingency fees, meaning they come out of the money we recover for you and are paid when that money is received. We do not bill by the hour or keep track of the time we spend on your case. We want you to feel like you can spend all the time you need with us to understand and feel comfortable about your case.
Along the way we do not ask you to pay the case expenses like court filing fees or charges for medical records. Those also come out of the money you recover when your case is resolved.
If for some reason you do not get a settlement or judgment you will not owe us any money.
Don’t let financial concerns keep you from getting the help you need.
3. What happens when I call Crocker Law Firm the first time?
When you call Crocker Law Firm for the first time a friendly receptionist will ask for a little information about your situation so that she can figure out whether your case is the kind we can help with. If it is not, for example if you have a divorce or criminal matter, she may suggest some other lawyers you can call and will give you their contact information.
If you are calling about a car accident, wrongful death claim, or workers compensation case, your call will quickly be transferred to someone who can answer your initial questions and who can set an appointment for a lawyer to meet with you. We can meet at our office in Bowling Green, Kentucky, or we can come to you, whichever is more convenient for you.
If you are just calling to review your options and are not ready to schedule an appointment, that is perfectly fine. We are happy to talk with you and there is no charge for that consultation.
4. What happens at the first appointment?
The first appointment might be at our office in Bowling Green, Kentucky, at your home or at the hospital, depending on what is convenient for you.
One of the things that sets our firm apart is that your initial meeting, even before you have agreed to hire us, is with an attorney. We typically have the attorney and case manager who will be helping you meet with you. While a lot of firms use an investigator or other sign up person to do the initial consultation and sign your case, we feel like it is important and respectful to introduce you to the people who will be working for you. This relationship is going to be very important. You should know who you are hiring. And you will have questions that we feel should be answered by a lawyer.
We will learn a lot about you and your case in this meeting. The lawyer will go over, step by step, how we will go about resolving your claim. You will have the chance to ask questions about the value of your case, the timeline, the fees, and anything else you are wondering about.
If you have decided to hire us we will have you sign a representation agreement and other forms authorizing us to gather medical records and other evidence. You will leave the meeting with contact information for the lawyer and case manager and encouragement to call any time you have a question or concern.
And then we get to work on your case.

That’s not what this story is about.
