Former Judge Knew to Call Morgan, Collins and Yeast Right Away After His Car Wreck
Bill Trude is a former circuit judge for Estill, Lee and Owsley counties. When a driver crossed over the center line and crashed head-on into his car, the judge knew exactly who to call: Morgan, Collins and Yeast.
“I knew how good they were at practicing personal injury law and I knew they could get me results,” said Judge Trude.
In the wreck, Judge Trude suffered a broken back, a torn right rotator cuff and four broken ribs leaving him in need of surgery and months of medical care. Fortunately, the other driver’s insurance company agreed to pay the judge’s insurance claim fairly quickly.
However, the judge’s underinsured motorist coverage was holding out on approving his claim. That’s when Judge Trude called Roy Collins and Dan Yeast at Morgan, Collins and Yeast.
“Roy and Dan are both very down-to-earth, nice people and I knew they would do everything they could to get that claim approved,” said Judge Trude. And he was right. Once Roy contacted the underinsured motorist coverage insurance company, they agreed to pay the claim.
“It made the staff and I very proud to know that Bill trusted us to help him,” said personal injury attorney Roy Collins. “He not only had the capability to handle the claim himself, but he also knew nearly every lawyer in this area and could have chosen them to take his case. Thankfully, he chose Morgan, Collins and Yeast.”
“Even though I could’ve handled my case on my own, I didn’t want to go that route because I knew Morgan, Collins and Yeast had the attorneys and staff to do the work to get me results,” said Judge Trude. “I think they’re some of the best personal injury attorneys in Kentucky so without question, they were my first call.”

One Accident – Three Cases
One day, a client came to Morgan Collins and Yeast after being hurt on the job. He thought he only had a Workers’ Comp case, but after listening to him, our team realized he had three cases.
This client was injured when a ladder fell as he was climbing onto a building to do his job. The ladder had been improperly installed and/or maintained on the building by its owner.
The insurance company for the building’s owner initially denied the claim. But our firm hired the experts necessary to prove that the building owner was responsible for our client’s injuries. In the end, they agreed to pay our client $800,000 to settle his claim.
This settlement came on top of the recovery we were able to secure for him in his Workers’ Comp case. But, it doesn’t end there.
We also helped our client with his claim for Social Security Disability benefits. This client’s case is just one of many that show that whenever you are injured you need to have a law firm with the size, strength and experience to take care of all of your legal needs when you’re injured.
