Sobering statistics point to the dangers on Kentucky roads.

In 2015, there were more than 136,000 motor vehicle collisions in Kentucky. Those collisions resulted in 761 deaths and nearly 15,000 injuries. More than 1,000 of those collisions injured pedestrians, killing 71 of them, and of the 405 collisions involving bicyclists, seven people were killed. The main contributing factors in Kentucky automobile accidents are driver behavior, vehicle malfunction due to design or maintenance issues, and road and weather conditions.

Helping you determine fault after a Louisville car accident

To obtain full compensation for your injuries after a car accident, you must be able to show by a preponderance of the evidence that another party was at fault. This often means proving negligence on the part of another driver or owner of a vehicle, the manufacturer of a car, or the municipality responsible for maintaining safe road conditions. Our attorneys are here to thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your crash and consult accident reconstruction experts in an effort to establish fault and help you prove your case.

Recovering full compensation for various car accident injuries

Kentucky roads experience a greater rate of car and truck accidents than the national average. Common injuries from auto accidents in the Commonwealth include:

  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Concussion and traumatic brain injury
  • Internal organ damage
  • Soft-tissue whiplash injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries, including partial and complete paralysis
  • Shock due to blood loss

The role of motor vehicle insurance in Kentucky

Kentucky is a “choice no-fault” auto insurance state. This means that no matter who was at fault for your accident, you must turn to your own insurance company for compensation first. When purchasing car insurance, you do have the option of opting out of the no-fault system, but then you run the risk of someone else suing you after an accident. Our experienced personal injury lawyers are here to help you understand all of your options under your personal insurance policy in an effort to help get you the compensation you need.

If you’ve sustained a physical injury, compelling you to sue the at-fault party, you may find that the driver has insufficient insurance coverage. Kentucky law requires drivers to carry a minimum level of liability insurance as follows:

  • $25,000 bodily injury per person per accident
  • $50,000 bodily injury for all persons per accident
  • $10,000 property damage liability
  • $10,000 personal injury protection

This is hardly adequate for a serious injury that requires hospitalization. To make matters worse, insurance industry studies indicate that about 16 percent of drivers in Kentucky have no insurance at all. Dealing with an uninsured or underinsured driver can complicate your pursuit of justice, making it even more important to seek the help of a skilled and experienced auto accident attorney.
