About Truck Accidents in Louisville, KY

truck accidents in Louisville, KY Truck accidents in Louisville, KY are rarely as simple as victims believe. Whether a semi truck driver lost control of their vehicle and rear ended your sedan; an overtired (and over-caffeinated) driver blitzed through a red light and sideswiped your minivan; or a runaway truck – driven possibly by a DUI driver – crossed over the lanes of a highway and caused you to veer off onto the shoulder, you need and deserve accurate information about how to protect your rights as a possible personal injury plaintiff.

Who is Liable?

As a victim, your instincts about how the accident happened – and who should be to blame – may be surprisingly far off.

For instance, let’s take a closer look at the theoretical example we discussed above — about the impaired trucker who veered across lanes and drove you onto the shoulder. Your initial assessment might be to blame the driver for being reckless, careless, and driving under the influence. And you might be correct. But you might be only partially correct.

In fact, a closer, more careful analysis might highlight additional “hidden” defendants in your truck accident case. For instance, maybe the trucker lost control of their vehicle because the steering column locked. If the locked steering column played a role, then any party who contributed to this mechanical failure should also be named as a defendant and also held responsible for your medical bills, surgical costs, pain and suffering, and so forth.

For instance, maybe the trucking company itself failed to conduct proper maintenance on its vehicles. Or maybe the engineer of that particular model of truck failed to anticipate the potential for a steering column locking problem. To extract enough information to locate these “hidden” defendants requires skill, experience, patience, and diligence.

Juggling Multiple Stresses and Making Sense of Your Rights

Accident victims (and their family members) don’t just face medical and rehab related struggles. They face multiple crises in many areas of their lives, thanks to the truck crash. For instance, you may feel emotionally traumatized and drained. You may face immediate financial pressures, since you can no longer work as long as you used to be able to work. You may be overwhelmed as you explore the seemingly endless number of “accident victim resources” you’re encountering during your current web search.

What you crave is a strategy. You want someone to help you identify exactly what you need to do, step by step, when you need to do it, and what tasks you can safely ignore without risking compromising your ability to collect compensation.
