    Car Accident: Seven Figure Settlement for Teen Hit by Drunk Driver

    The Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers team fought to obtain a fair settlement for Melanie*, an 18 year who sustained traumatic injuries after she was struck by a drunk driver.

    The drunk driver had been over served by two different bars before getting into his car and colliding with our client going west on Campbell Lane in Bowling Green. Melanie was severely injured when an ambulance took her to the Bowling Green Medical Center ER. The accident left her with permanent damage and disabilities. Our team obtained a $1.2 million settlement after extensive litigation in court on her behalf. Justice was served for our client.

    When Insurance Pays in a Car Accident

    Several types of insurance coverage that will pay if you’re injured in an automobile collision:

    • Personal Injury Protection: The vehicle you are in is the primary coverage for payment of Personal Injury Protection (PIP) in Kentucky. PIP has minimum limits of $10,000, and pays for medical expenses, lost income, home care, and even a portion of funeral expenses. At Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers, we reserve these benefits so medical bills and lost wages will get paid. PIP is repaid by the party at fault.
    • Liability: The at-fault driver pays for injuries caused to another party through their liability policy, which in Kentucky has a minimum policy of $25,000 per person/ $50,000 per accident, and a maximum can be in the millions with a commercial insurance policy.
    • Uninsured Motorist: If the driver at fault did not have insurance, you can collect on your uninsured motorists coverage through your own insurance policy.
    • Underinsured Motorist: If the at-fault driver had insurance, but not enough, or your injuries are greater than that amount, you can collect on underinsured motorist coverage. Flora Templeton Stuart will make sure all underinsured policies are uncovered for fair financial recovery.

    How We Will Prove Negligence in Your Bowling Green Accident Case?

    Before we can take action against the liable party, we need to prove that their negligence led to your accident. We do this by establishing the following elements of negligence:

    • Duty of care: The at-fault party had a responsibility to keep you safe by following all traffic laws.
    • Breach of duty: The at-fault party breached their duty of care, instead acting negligently.
    • Causation: The at-fault party’s actions or inactions caused you to suffer an accident and injuries.
    • Damages: You suffered damages, such as pain and suffering and property damage, because of the at-fault party’s negligence.

    Our team will gather evidence to prove negligence, including police reports, witness statements, and surveillance footage.

    You Have a Limited Amount of Time to File Your Car Accident Lawsuit in Kentucky

    In vehicle accidents, there is a limited amount of time to sue. In Kentucky, you have two years after the wreck to sue which can be extended with PIP benefits being paid, as per Ky. Rev. Stat. § 304.39-230(6). In Tennessee, you only have one year to file action. Anyone under 18 has the time to sue after they turn 18.

    The Statute of Limitations for Wrongful Death cases is governed by KRS 413.140.
