FWH - Best of Owensboro

Five years ago I joined forces with my partners, Jeff Foreman and Jim Watson. From the beginning we all made a commitment to being involved in our community. That genuine pride we have in the people of our region has trickled down to our associate attorneys and our staff. We serve on boards, we coach youth teams, we support local school and charities. WE do that because we care about the health and well-being of the people in Owensboro and surrounding counties. Recently FWH was recognized by Owensboro Living as Owensboro's Best Law Firm. Likewise we received the Messenger Inquirer Readers Choice Gold recognition for best law firm in Owensboro. We were overwhelmed by this recognition and we were humbled by it because we serve our region out of genuine desire to make a difference for the better in peoples' lives. Receiving this award is nice, but it is not the reason we do what we do. We do what we do because people matter and at FWH we want our legacy to be known as caring lawyers who change lives. FWH is raising the bar!

CAR RENTAL RECALLS

"What I experienced was an everyday fender bender. I assumed most lawyers would not care to take my case because it was small in scale, however when dealing with Travis Holtrey and his team of employees, I felt as though I was their most important asset. I was treated with care and respect as they sat down with me and my passengers to discuss the accident and what options we had. In the end Travis achieved an outcome higher than my expectations for my passengers and myself and I am happy to recommend him to my friends and family in similar hard times."
A. Smith - Beaver Dam, Kentucky At FWH we are dedicated to demanding accountability in the situations facing our clients. Personal injury takes place when we least expect it and the attention to detail before and after the injury is vital to the outcome of your case and continued safety. Like Mr. Smith above, we want to be able to provide you with the most up to date information, communication, and overall awareness to the details at hand. Below is a new update provided by the NHSTA in regards to rental car safety. The U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced that on June 1, 2016, rental car agencies must fix any and all open safety defects before renting out vehicles to customers. The new legislation was recently passed by Congress in the Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act of 2015. In 2014, there were close to 900 recalls affecting 51 million vehicles nationwide. NHTSA has stated it will seek 100 percent remedy completion rates in open recalls. "When a family picks up a rental car on vacation, they should be able to expect it is free of any known safety defect," said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. Federal law now prohibits any company or dealer with fleets greater than 35 vehicles to rent unrepaired recalled vehicles. It also extends NHTSA's recall authority to cover rental car companies for the first time, giving the safety agency power to investigate and punish violators. The legislation was championed by the family of Raechel and Jacqueline Houck, sisters who died in a rental vehicle that was under a safety recall but had not been repaired. Consumers can use NHTSA's free Recall Look-up Tool to determine if a vehicle has an open safety recall that needs to be addressed. Vehicle owners are reminded to check for periodically and contact NHTSA with concerns related to the safety of their vehicles due to defects and recalls by visiting www.safercar.gov or calling 1-888-327-4236.
