What Is My Case Worth?

At Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers, we work to maximize the value of your case and get you the settlement you deserve. Compensation in a personal injury case is largely dependent on the extent of your injuries, medical treatment, pain & suffering, and other factors, however an experienced law firm can negotiate with insurance companies to maximize your recovery. Our job is to prove liability and build a strong case to demand a higher settlement on behalf of our injured clients.

A personal injury lawsuit generally seeks economic and noneconomic compensation. Medical bills, loss of income, and property damage are economic damages, while pain and suffering are noneconomic damages. Compensation for your claim largely depends on the nature of your injuries or losses, but the lawyer that you choose can dramatically influence the final payout. We have recovered millions for our injured clients and are successful in over 90% of our cases. Call Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers today and put our 43 years of experience to work for you. 

Car Accidents

At Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers, we understand how devastating a car accident can be. Accident victims can be left with serious injuries, property damage, and medical bills, which is why it is important to contact an experienced attorney to handle your case. When our Columbia clients are injured in a car accident, our team immediately gets to work to gather evidence and begin building your case.

According to the Kentucky State Police, Adair County experienced 253 car accidents in 2019, which was an 18% increase from the year before. Additionally, over 31% of these accidents resulted in serious injury. Broken bones, cuts and lacerations, head injuries, and internal damage are just a few of the injuries that are often immediately present after an accident. However, some other injuries may take days or weeks to become noticeable.

Soft tissue injuries are caused by damage to the body’s connective tissue and is the most common injury after a vehicle accident. Soft tissue injuries can cause serious pain and discomfort to the neck and back. Whiplash is a common cause for soft tissue damage and symptoms for these types of injuries may be delayed for significant periods of time. This is why it is imperative to contact our Columbia car accident lawyers after a wreck. Our legal team ensures that our clients receive excellent medical care and will fight the insurance companies to recover damages from the at-fault party.

Semi-Truck Accidents

Semi-truck accidents are among the most serious cases we handle at our law firm. They are also more common than you may think. Between 2012-2016, Adair County experienced 87 accidents involving semi-trucks, which accounted for nearly 10% of all traffic collisions in the area according to the Kentucky Transportation Center. Semi-trucks can cause catastrophic injury when they strike a vehicle or motorcycle due to their weight and size. Also, the drivers are on the road for long hours and under strict deadlines making negligence and mistakes in this industry all too common. Negligent semi-truck drivers put Kentucky drivers at serious risk, which is why our legal team is on standby to help our injured clients after an accident.

What Makes An Accident Involving A Semi-Truck Unique?

While the average weight of passenger vehicles is around 4,000 pounds, tractor-trailers can weigh up to 160,000 pounds when fully loaded. This makes these big rigs extremely dangerous to other vehicles and can cause catastrophic injuries to riders and passengers.  The trucking industry has various laws and regulations that trucking companies must comply with to promote safety on our roadways. However, some trucking companies take shortcuts or engage in cost-cutting measures that make these vehicles even more dangerous.

Size isn’t the only difference between car accidents and commercial trucking accidents. Unlike a standard passenger vehicle, there are several parties that are involved in the safety and maintenance of commercial vehicles. Each party involved in a commercial trucking operation has a role in ensuring the vehicle is safe and operated properly to prevent an accident from occurring. If any of these parties engage in negligent behavior contributing to the accident, they may be liable for damages. Furthermore, multiple parties can simultaneously be held liable for the accident, making semi-truck accident cases extremely complex and laborious.

Without the knowledge and years of experience handling semi-truck accident cases, most victims will get just a fraction of the compensation awarded for the damages they sustained. Fortunately, our attorneys have been maximizing semi-truck accident settlements for over 44 years and understand the tricks that trucking companies use to avoid paying what you are owed. Contact us today for a free case evaluation and find out what your case is worth.

Pedestrian Accidents

Accidents involving pedestrians is a serious problem that leaves thousands injured, disabled, or dead each year. In 2013 alone, more than 150,000 pedestrians were injured and over 4,700 were killed in car accidents in the United States. Motorists have a responsibility to obey traffic laws and drive safely—especially when approaching crosswalks or in high foot-traffic areas. When drivers in Adair County fail to meet those obligations, pedestrians are put in jeopardy. When a pedestrian is injured, he or she may be entitled to compensation for past and future medical bills, pain & suffering, lost income, and other damages associated with the accident. Call our experienced Columbia pedestrian injury lawyer to investigate and negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf so you can focus on recovering. Contact us today.
