About Us

Our Mission

Mehr, Fairbanks & Peterson represent disability and insurance clients across the United States.

We have taken more insurance bad faith cases to trial than any other law firm in Kentucky. Honesty and integrity are the cornerstones of our practice, but our clients trust and recommend us because we treat them like family. We care and understand that disability and insurance bad faith cases arise from some of life’s most difficult situations.

That is why we fight passionately to get our clients every dime they deserve.

What We Do

Disability and insurance problems never come at a good time. If your disability claim has been denied or the insurance company is refusing to pay your life insurance or another insurance claim, call us now. We’ll take on the insurance company for you.

When you have been denied an insurance benefit or disability claim, you must act or you could lose your chance to force the insurance company to pay. Going up against an insurance company is no easy task. Insurance company lawyers know that the more difficult they can make the process, the less likely it is that you will pursue your claim to the end. Our experienced trial lawyers know all of the insurance company tricks. We won’t let them play games with you. We will fight to get you every penny you deserve.

A.
"With everything to lose I laid my vulnerability in the hands of Bartley Hagerman. I cannot put into words the hard work, dedication, and compassion that I was shown. Bartley was able to help me when the odds were stacked against me. I am beyond grateful!" C. W.
"When my long term disability case got canceled, I didn’t know what to do or who to turn to. Luckily someone I knew recommended Mehr, Fairbanks & Peterson. I met up with Mr. Bartley Hagerman and not only did he take my case, he got my long term disability reinstated. He keeps you updated and works hard for you! Highly recommend Mr. Bartley Hagerman at Mehr, Fairbanks & Peterson!" D. C.
