Louisville, KY truck accident injuries lawyer

A serious truck accident can be a stressful and disturbing event. You will have to deal with insurance companies, law enforcement and medical professionals, not to mention the physical and emotional pain of any injuries you suffered. You also need to remember that you have legal rights. With the right Louisville, KY truck accident injuries lawyer on your side, you can secure the compensation you deserve.

The number of vehicle accidents in the United States has been decreasing. However, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 23,000 people were injured in large truck accidents in 2007. Injuries in these cases are often severe and can include the following:

  • Neurological damage
  • Fractured bones
  • Loss of vision
  • Spinal cord injuries

Common Causes of Collisions

Because of heavy-freight loads and the sheer size of the vehicles, even a minor tractor-trailer accident can have destructive consequences. Unfortunately, many drivers of commercial vehicles put in long hours, which can affect their driving. Truck crashes can have numerous causes such as these:

  • Driver distraction
  • Icy or wet roads
  • Exhausted or overworked driver
  • Mechanical failure
  • Inadequately trained driver
  • Overly aggressive driving
  • Poor maintenance

Unlike other drivers, truckers have to follow strict federal and state guidelines. If they fail to do this, they could be found liable for damages to another party. Effects of a truck accident can include physical injuries, emotional stress, medical costs, travel expenses and other costs.
