Your Kentucky Personal Injury Lawyers

Herren & Adams LLP is a Lexington law firm which handles personal injury cases of all types throughout Kentucky.

Tom Herren and Chuck Adams have been practicing personal injury law together since 1990. In July of 2015, longtime Lexington attorney Peter Perlman joined the firm. Both Tom and Chuck worked as young lawyers in Pete’s office in the late 1980’s. We are excited to join forces again in representation of injured victims and consumers.

Over the years, the Lexington injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Herren & Adams LLP have handled a wide assortment of personal injury and wrongful death suits, including cases involving car accidents, motorcycle accidents & trucking accidents, aviation disasters, legal malpractice, medical negligence and products liability. In recent years, Herren and Adams have represented victims of nursing home abuse and neglect, as well as many people that have suffered an injury due to a defective medical device. We also have become involved in pharmaceutical litigation.

Tom Herren was raised in Central Kentucky but his family originates from Corbin, Kentucky. He is known by his peers to be an ethical lawyer and an excellent advocate for his clients. While Tom has vast knowledge of all areas of personal injury law, he is best known for his expertise in issues arising from car, truck and motorcycle accidents. It is combination of personal experience and sound knowledge that guides Tom to be a mighty opponent in the court room.

Chuck Adams was raised in Somerset, Kentucky but has spent his adult life here in Lexington. While best known in the region for his trial success representing a family against the Ford Motor Company, he is also seen as a mentor to other attorneys due to his profound understanding of the law. Additionally he has a keen understanding of injuries and how these injuries impact the life of a victim.

During nearly 50 years of practicing law, Peter Perlman has become nationally recognized as a leader in product liability and crash-worthiness litigation. He has shared his expertise with other attorneys as well as groups throughout the country and abroad. Pete has been told by judges and opposing lawyers that his greatest strength is his ability to simplify complicated issues.

As Lexington injury attorneys, Tom, Chuck and Pete have represented individuals and families who have suffered catastrophic injuries or death. Many situations, such as the death or injury of a child, require an experienced trial attorney. It is during this devastating time that you need attorneys experienced in working with insurance companies and the court system to help bring a successful resolution to a very tragic situation. Some of our more noteworthy cases are listed on our Verdicts & Settlements page.

While our practice is based in Central Kentucky, our Lexington injury lawyers proudly represent clients and families in many areas throughout the state. We frequently travel to Northern Kentucky, South Central Kentucky as well as Eastern Kentucky to meet with clients and litigate cases in those areas.

There are many out-of-state law firms advertising on television in the Central Kentucky area. Few, if any, of the people in the commercials live or work here in Central Kentucky. While some firms have offices here, many of the advertisers are from Florida, Texas, Louisville and Western Kentucky. We have lived and worked in Central Kentucky for 5 decades. We understand Kentucky’s courts and have successfully represented the citizens here.

We are available any day of the week and enjoy getting to know the individuals and families we represent. We believe this is very important and allows us to meet the unique needs of each client. Many of our clients have become lifelong friends and refer others to our firm. We are honored by this compliment and strive to provide exceptional, individual service with each of our clients.
