Car Accidents: We have represented hundreds of car accident victims in Glasgow, Cave City, and all of Barren County, which encountered a 27.4% increase in automobile accidents between 2012-2016. Additionally, Glasgow alone experienced 2,922 automobile collisions during that period according to the Kentucky Transportation Center (KTC). Many of these accidents were caused by distracted driving, drunk driving, and other negligible actions by other drivers on the road.
In Kentucky, driver inattention is the number one factor involved in car accidents, causing 49,743 collisions in 2018 according to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC). This includes sending a text, changing the radio, eating, or any other activity that takes a driver’s eyes off the road. Innocent people are killed or left seriously injured every day due to the negligence of drivers in Kentucky. Fortunately, our Glasgow car accident lawyers will immediately travel to our clients at their homes or in the hospital to gather evidence and begin working on the case. Contact us today for a free case evaluation. We’re local and we care.
Semi-Truck Accidents: Semi-trucks can cause catastrophic injury when they strike a vehicle or motorcycle due to their weight and size. Barren County averages around 85 accidents involving semi-trucks each year according to the KTC. Unfortunately, these accidents don’t just happen on highways and interstates. In fact, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) estimates that 57% of all fatal crashes involving big trucks occurred in rural areas. For eighteen-wheelers that can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, the smallest oversight can have disastrous consequences. While semi-trucks must follow strict safety measures and inspections, negligent parties other than the truck driver may be responsible for the crash.
The trucking company, the truck manufacturer, the shipping company, the loading company, and the other drivers/pedestrians may all be listed as parties in the case. Additionally, each party has their own insurance company and legal representation. Negotiating with multiple insurance adjusters, lawyers, and representatives takes a special kind of lawyer with the necessary skills and resources to reach an acceptable settlement. Our team of semi-truck accident lawyers deals with insurance companies every day and we have recovered millions for our injured clients. If you or a loved one has been injured by a big truck, call our Glasgow semi-truck accident lawyers for a free case evaluation.
Personal Injury: Every second, an American is accidentally injured by preventable events like car accidents, slips & falls, and drownings, according to the National Safety Council (NSC). Accidental injury is now the #3 cause of death in the United States and these numbers are on the rise. If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident, our Glasgow personal injury lawyers will fight to collect compensation for pain and suffering, property damage, medical bills, lost wages, and more. Our Glasgow personal injury lawyers are ready to investigate your case so we can maximize recovery for our injured clients in Glasgow and Barren County.
Motorcycle Accidents: The dangers of riding motorcycles are all too familiar, especially with negligent car and truck drivers on the road. Although motorcycles make up only 3% of all registered vehicles in the United States, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that riders accounted for 14% of all traffic fatalities in 2017. The relatively small number of motorcycles on the road makes it difficult for car and truck drivers to develop the necessary skills to make the roads safer for riders. This inexperience, combined with driver inattention, speeding, failure to yield, and other negligent actions by drivers can place unnecessary risk on Glasgow motorcycle riders.
No matter how fast you are traveling, motorcycles offer little protection and riders rarely walk away from a collision unscathed. In 2016 alone, 104,000 motorcyclists were injured in motor vehicle traffic crashes. If you or a loved one have been injured in a motorcycle accident, call our Glasgow motorcycle accident lawyers for a free case evaluation. We represent riders and work for maximum recovery.
