Information Regarding Referrals
At the Hay & Knight, PLLC in Somerset, Kentucky, we have extensive experience handling a wide variety of serious personal injury and wrongful death cases. Our firm concentrates on handling only this type of work, accepting cases in south central and Eastern Kentucky as well as across the state. This high level of focus allows us to dedicate significant resources to each case and remain highly knowledgeable of the many issues that may arise throughout the course of litigation or negotiation.

How We Work
Founded in 1982, we pride ourselves on the reputation we have earned throughout the legal profession and our local communities. Our experienced legal team accepts cases throughout the state. All of our cases are handled personally by Mr. Hay and his daughter, experienced and accomplished lawyer Sarah Hay Knight.
We built this practice on word-of-mouth referrals from fellow attorneys and former clients. We believe this attests to the excellent level of service we provide and the superior results we deliver.
Whether it is on a one-time basis or as the result of an established referring relationship, we strive to reach a solution in each case that is in the client’s best interests.
When a case is referred to us, we thoroughly examine the matter to ensure that we are doing service to the client by taking it on. It is important that we believe we are able to handle the case successfully before agreeing to see it through to the end; we advance all legal fees, charging clients only if we recover compensation for them by settlement or jury verdict.
We believe that referring attorneys can be as involved (or not involved) as desired. We also believe that our involvement, knowledge and experience can help the bottom line.
We have extensive capabilities and the resources required to handle a wide variety of personal injury and wrongful death cases, including:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Boating accidents
- Aviation accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Nursing home negligence and abuse
- Products liability, with a significant focus on automotive defects
- Premises liability
We are skilled litigators who pride ourselves on our deep level of involvement with our clients’ cases. Our firm communicates frequently with clients so they know the status of their cases at all times.
