Legal Advice for Storm Victims in Kentucky
Sun March 18, 2012
Hotline for Free Legal Assistance Established
Residents of 21 Kentucky counties who suffered losses from severe storms that occurred between February 29th and March 3rd can obtain free legal advice. Regardless of whether the damage was caused by straight line winds, flooding, or tornadoes, survivors of the severe weather in the 21 impacted counties can call toll-free for legal help. The service allows callers to request the assistance of a lawyer to deal with home repair contracts, questions about insurance coverage, securing government benefits, or the replacement of important documents like wills.
The service is a partnership of the Kentucky Bar Association, the Bar Association's Young Lawyers Section, and the American Bar Association's Young Lawyers Division. The toll free number, 877-625-9839, will be staffed during weekday office hours.
