Our attorneys fight to get maximum compensation for people whose lives have been changed because of a serious injury or the loss of a loved one.

Authenticity In A Legal Practice

Lawyers have a bad reputation. You know it and so do we. You’ve probably heard horror stories about lawyers who didn’t listen, who were unreachable, who accepted a lowball settlement offer or mishandled a claim. Maybe you’ve even experienced one yourself.

At Merk & Gile, in Newport, Kentucky, we are committed to reinvigorating the practice of law. This may seem like a lofty goal, but we don’t think so. To us it starts simply: with authenticity. From the bare brick walls of our conference room to the smiles on our faces when we help someone get every penny they need to move forward after a car accident, everything about us and our practice is authentic.

We will listen to you. We get that you don’t want to be here. You don’t want to be going through this. You may be nervous, frustrated, scared or outright angry, and every one of those emotions is legitimate in these situations. We will be real with you, letting you know what your case is going to look like, what parts are going to be easy, and what parts might get tough. And we will work hard to win, because when you win, we win. That’s all there is to it.

This Is About Money, And That’s Okay

Medical bills can’t be paid with justice. Lost wages aren’t going to be made up with “I’m sorry”s. You need money to fix this as best as it can be fixed. That’s okay. There’s nothing wrong with that. There’s nothing wrong with telling the insurance company, “No, that’s not going to cover it” when they come with a miniscule settlement offer. There’s nothing wrong with pushing back to make sure you can pay your bills and buy your groceries and move on after suffering a personal injury or the wrongful death of a loved one.

Our attorneys are here to push back and get you maximum compensation. We have the knowledge, the skill, the energy and the sheer drive to go up against the insurance company and get you the money you deserve. We’re ready to handle personal injury and wrongful death claims of all kinds for people throughout Kentucky and Ohio.
