Personal Injury Cases

Have you been injured due to the negligence of a third party?  If so, you need a personal injury lawyer who will personally work on your case that is close by to provide the best representation. Flora Templeton Stuart has proven over the years that we can be trusted and achieve results for our injured clients.

Personal injury claims can involve injuries not only in vehicle accidents but also slip and falls, dog bites, gun shot wounds, or any accident causing injury or death due to the negligence of another person. We handle all types of personal injury claims, including car accidents, semi-truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, DUI accidents, pedestrian accidents, wrongful death, premises liability/slip & fall, dog bites, nursing home abuse, and work injuries.

Personal Injury Damages

Our primary job as personal injury attorneys representing the seriously injured is to demand and collect the maximum amount we can.  These damages can be divided into economic (special) and non-economic damages.

Economic (Special) damages include:

  • Past and future medical expenses,
  • Lost income,
  • Reduced earning capacity,
  • Property damage,
  • Cost of care, past and future,
  • Punitive damages, and
  • Other accident- and injury-related expenses.

These are Special damages to compensate for monetary expenses incurred because of an injury.

Non-Economic damages include:

  • Pain and suffering,
  • Mental anguish,
  • Emotional distress,
  • Reduced quality of life, and
  • Loss of companionship, loss of consortium

Personal representation is what you get at Flora Templeton Stuart Law Firm.  We can collect the damages you deserve by making sure you have proper medical treatment while you are recovering from your injuries, by establishing liability with our team of experts investigating the accident, and by working with our clients to make sure they receive the justice they deserve.

We fight for you to receive maximum results based on the severity of your injuries, liability (the fault of another party), and the available insurance coverage.

What Is A Personal Injury?

Personal injury occurs when a person is injured as a result of the negligence, carelessness or wrongful conduct of another person. Each year thousands of people are injured in different accidents.

To have a personal injury claim the accident must be caused by the negligent or wrongful conduct of another person.  To determine whether or not you can successfully pursue a personal injury case, call the experienced attorneys at Flora Templeton Stuart.

A great variety of incidents can give rise to personal injury claims such as motor vehicle accidents, trucking accidents, slip and falls, dog bites, or any other accident or injury caused by the fault of someone else. Personal injury law also includes intentional conduct, such as gross negligence which is often the case with intoxicated drivers.

Six Figure Settlement For Glasgow Car Accident Victim

Recent Glasgow KY Car Accident
Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers were retained by a driver involved in a 4-car collision in Glasgow, KY. Our client, Alex, was rear-ended on Happy Valley Road by a negligent commercial truck driver causing a chain reaction.

Our accident team immediately investigated the accident, obtained police reports and witness statements, and handled all negotiations with the insurance company to build a strong case and maximize Alex’s recovery. We reserved his PIP benefits so he would have funds for lost income while he recovered.In addition to recovering a six-figure settlement for our client, we also provided referrals to quality physicians that would give Alex the best chance of getting his life back.

Car Accidents

At Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers, we have represented hundreds of accident victims in Barren County, which encountered a 27.4% increase in automobile accidents between 2012 to 2016 according to 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. People are killed or left seriously injured every day due to the negligence of drivers in Kentucky.

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.

Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers has decades of experience handling car accidents in Barren County caused by distraction, intoxication, speeding, and other negligent driving. Our legal team fights for car accident victims.

Injuries you suffer in a car accident can be severe and costly. If you hire our firm we will not only fight to get you the settlement you deserve, we help you focus on healing by referring you to reputable physicians to get medical treatment. We establish liability so you can collect from the party who hurt you and collect the compensation you need to move forward with your life.

Semi Truck Accidents

When an 18 wheeler truck accident occurs, serious injury or death is likely to follow. Frequently, violations of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations are involved.  You need an experienced semi-truck lawyer to establish liability and damages for maximum recovery.

The number of fatal truck accidents has actually increased since 2010, according to data from FMCSA.  Often this is due to unsafe hours-of-service regulations, tired, exhausted drivers on the road.  Catastrophic and even fatal accidents still occur every day in Barren County and throughout Kentucky.

Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers has represented clients who were seriously injured or killed in these tragic commercial accidents throughout Barren County and the United States. At Flora Templeton Stuart we know these cases and understand the issues of causation, multiple parties and more.

Semi-truck carriers and insurance companies often avoid responsibility. We will fight aggressively for your rights.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death cases are tragic for the families who lose a loved one in a devastating accident. This occurs when someone is killed due to the negligence, gross negligence, or intentional conduct of another person.

In-vehicle collisions, getting to the scene immediately is vital in establishing a wrongful death claim. At Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers, our team of investigators will be on the scene immediately upon being contacted by a grieving family member.

Wrongful death claims can also result in gun shot cases where a child may accidentally be shot by a gun, dog attacks, falls or any other catastrophic personal injury claim.  If your loved one has died as a result of another’s careless conduct contact us today.

Motorcycle Accidents

We have represented riders through the decades that have sustained not only catastrophic injury but death. This is particularly seen in Barren County where the highways intersect and country roads abound.

The leading cause of motorcycle crashes is negligent driving on behalf of drivers. Because motorcyclists are harder to see on the road it is easier for a driver to have a lapse in judgement and drive into a motorcyclist. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident our law firm is here for you.

Understanding Negligence

flora templeton stuart with clientIn personal injury cases, we must prove the other person was negligent to collect damages for injuries you have sustained.  In Barren County and Kentucky everyone is required to act as a reasonably prudent person would under similar circumstances.

Negligence is when an individual fails to act like a reasonably prudent person and causes someone else harm such as in a car accident when the other person runs the red light and causes the collision.

To prove negligence, we establish four elements:

  • The other party owed you a duty of care;
  • The other party breached their duty of care;
  • You suffered an injury; and
  • The other party’s conduct was the direct and proximate cause of your injury.

When our team of attorneys are called by someone who is seriously injured in an accident which often includes car or semi-truck collision, we immediately work to establish liability, or fault of the other person to show that they violated the duty of care.

This can include hiring experts such as detectives who obtain recorded statements from witnesses and accident reconstructionists to establish the fault of the other party.  Having a law firm close by to document the evidence is crucial as time is of the essence following an accident.
