COMMON TYPES OF CAR ACCIDENTS

Car accidents can occur in various scenarios, potentially resulting in various injuries. Some common types of car accidents we handle include:

  • Rear-End Collisions: These occur when one vehicle strikes the back of another. They often lead to whiplash injuries and can result from distracted driving or following too closely.
  • Head-On Collisions are some of the most severe accidents, often resulting in catastrophic injuries or fatalities. They typically occur due to wrong-way driving, overtaking, or driver impairment.
  • Side-Impact Collisions (T-bone Accidents): These accidents often happen at intersections and can cause serious injuries, especially if the impact is on the side where a vehicle's occupants are seated.
  • Multi-Vehicle Pileups: These occur in high-traffic areas and can involve multiple vehicles. Determining liability can be complex in these cases, but our legal team has the experience to navigate such challenges.
  • Distracted Driving Accidents: With the prevalence of smartphones and other distractions, these accidents are rising. Texting, talking on the phone, or any other activity that diverts a driver's attention can lead to devastating collisions.
  • Drunk Driving Accidents: Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs significantly impairs a driver's judgment and coordination, often resulting in serious accidents. We are committed to holding negligent drivers accountable.

WHAT DAMAGES CAN BE RECOVERED IN A CAR ACCIDENT CLAIM? 

If you've been injured in a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation for various damages, including:

  • Medical Expenses: This includes current and future medical bills, rehabilitation costs, prescription medications, and any necessary medical equipment.
  • Lost Wages: If your injuries prevent you from working, you can seek compensation for your lost income and diminished earning capacity.
  • Pain and Suffering: Physical pain, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life all contribute to the accident's overall impact on your well-being.
  • Property Damage: Repair or replacement costs for your damaged vehicle and any personal property inside the vehicle.
  • Wrongful Death Damages: If you've lost a loved one in a fatal car accident, you may be eligible to recover funeral expenses, loss of companionship, and more through a wrongful death claim. 

WHAT IS THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS FOR A CAR ACCIDENT CLAIM IN KENTUCKY?

In Kentucky, the statute of limitations for filing a car accident claim is generally two years from the accident date. This means you have a limited time to take legal action and seek compensation for your injuries and damages. It's crucial to act swiftly and consult with an experienced Louisville car accident lawyer to ensure your rights are protected.
