Albert’s Story: Maximum Compensation for Madisonville Crash Victim

Madisonville Car Accident VictimFlora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers recently traveled to Madisonville to meet with a man who was seriously injured in a car accident. Our client, Albert, was seriously injured when a negligent driver blew through a stop sign and violently struck his vehicle. Although he was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident, the force of the collision sent Albert smashing into the interior of the vehicle. This resulted in several impact injuries, including contusions, a torn ligament in his knee, and a torn meniscus.

Our attorneys were able to establish that the other driver was liable for all of Albert’s damages. This allowed our team to obtain a settlement from the at-fault drivers insurance company for nearly $50,000- the maximum amount available to our client. Maximizing compensation is always our goal at Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers. In this case and thousands of others, we were able to negotiate a settlement that covered all costs incurred by our client.

How is fault attributed to Morgantown car accidents? 

Kentucky follows a pure comparative law negligence system (KRS § 411.182). This means that if both you and the other driver are partially responsible for the accident, then the fault will be distributed between both of you in different percentages. When determining who was at fault, various factors are considered including recklessness and carelessness of the drivers.

This “pure comparative” system of laws allows you to recover damages even if you are found partially at fault for the accident. Essentially, the courts will reduce the plaintiff’s compensation amount by his or her percentage of fault. Our law firm gets to work immediately to establish fault against the negligent party. Although negligence comes in many forms, including distracted driving and unsafe lane changes, one of the most common forms of driver negligence is speeding. Hopkins County has one of the highest rates of speeding drivers in the state, and nearly 5% of all collisions in the area are caused by drivers traveling at an unsafe speed.

Our experienced Hopkins County car wreck attorneys have connections with investigators and accident reconstructionist to immediately begin gathering evidence to help your case. Do not wait too long to contact our attorneys, or valuable evidence may be lost.

What is PIP (personal injury protection) or “no fault benefits”?

Kentucky is one of twelve states that requires all insurance companies to offer Personal Injury Protection (PIP) with all automobile policies sold within the state. (KRS 304.39-030). These benefits are also referred to as “No-fault benefits.” PIP coverage ensures that no matter who is at fault in a motor vehicle accident, an injured driver can have his or her car insurance pay for a certain amount of lost wages, medical bills, and replacement services related to the accident. (KRS 304-39-060(4)). While Insurance companies must offer a minimum of $10,000 in PIP coverage, you can purchase more coverage up to $50,000.

PIP coverage follows the vehicle you are in. When you are in collision in your own vehicle, you will have a PIP claim opened with your own insurance (or if you were a passenger in someone else’s car, then with the vehicle owner’s insurance). If you have been in an accident, the lawyers at the Law Office of Flora Templeton Stuart will handle the PIP claim for no extra fee. We make sure you get the benefits you deserve, as soon as possible.

Semi Truck Accidents

Trucks of all sizes drive the roads and highways of Hopkins County on a daily basis. While any motor vehicle wreck has the potential to cause serious injury, Semi-trucks are especially dangerous due to their weight and size. Compared with collisions involving smaller passenger vehicles, semi-truck accidents tend to result in more catastrophic injuries and fatalities, as they can often weigh in excess of 60,000 pounds. That is why semi-trucks are regulated federally through the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers has spent decades representing clients who were seriously injured or killed in these tragic commercial accidents throughout the United States.  At Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers, we know these cases and understand the complex issues that are unique to any commercial vehicle crash. It is especially critical in these cases to contact an experienced semi-truck attorney as soon as possible, as the trucking companies may lose or destroy evidence, or attempt to get their semi-truck back on the road as soon as possible.

In 2018, Kentucky State Police recorded a total of 10,620 trucks that were involved in collisions in Kentucky, with 116 resulting in fatalities. Of those truck crashes:

  • 19% happened on county or city streets;
  • 30% happened on interstates, and;
  • 45% happened on U.S. and State-numbered routes.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a Hopkins County semi-truck crash, contact the experienced semi-truck tractor trailer attorneys at Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers as soon as possible. Our experienced Hopkins County Semitruck crash attorneys will make sure you get the treatment you need and the settlement you deserve.

Motorcycle Accidents

In 2018 there were a recorded 122,360 motorcycles registered in Kentucky, attributing to 7.47% of all wrecks statewide. Contrary to popular belief, most motorcycle accidents are not the fault of the biker in a majority of cases. The biker, however, is the one who suffers the brunt of the injuries due to the fault of automobile drivers.

What could be considered a minor accident to a person involved in a car wreck has the potential to seriously injure or kill a motorcycle rider. In addition to the serious nature of motorcycle collision injuries, the required insurance coverage on motorcycles in Kentucky is different than the required insurance coverage on cars—potentially leaving a motorcycle injury victim struggling to cover his or her medical expenses.

Our experienced Hopkins County motorcycle wreck attorneys have spent decades representing motorcycle accident victims. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident through no fault of your own, you are entitled to compensation for the medical expenses incurred treating your injury. You may also be able to collect lost wages for missed work or even future lost income if your ability to work has been affected by the injury, as well as future medical expenses, long-term care and rehabilitation, or the cost of adaptive equipment. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident our law firm is here for you.

Wrongful Death

Our law firm has decades of experience guiding loved ones through the difficult and devastating process of a wrongful death claim. These cases are complex, and require court approval of the appropriate representative to handle the estate of the deceased and prosecute the wrongful death claim on the behalf of the estate.

Our office will assist in getting the right representative appointed in the appropriate court, and will begin working immediately to hold the responsible parties liable for their negligence. Common types of wrongful death case can include; car accidents, semi-truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, work accidents, and slip and fall accidents.

With wrongful death cases, getting to the scene of the incident immediately is vital in establishing and preserving the claim.  At Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers, our team of investigators promptly get on the scene to take photographs, get witness statements, and attempt to preserve evidence. If your loved one has died as a result of another’s careless conduct, contact the experienced Hopkins County Wrongful Death Attorneys at Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers today.

Pedestrian accidents 

In 2018, The Kentucky State Police reported 1,024 collisions with vehicles and pedestrians, resulting in 79 fatalities. Pedestrian accidents are some of the most serious cases we handle—frequently resulting in catastrophic injuries such as spine and brain injuries, broken bones, or even death. Many Hopkins County Kentucky injury accidents happen due to drivers failing to see pedestrians on the road.  Contributing factors recorded for 2018 pedestrian collisions include:

  • Inattention
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Distraction
  • Alcohol involvement

If you or a loved one has been the victim of a pedestrian accident, call an experienced Hopkins County pedestrian injury lawyer to investigate and negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf so you can focus on what is most important – recovering from your injuries.

What is the statute of limitations for my personal injury claim?

Kentucky state law sets limits on how much time you have to settle your claim or file a lawsuit, depending on the type of case it is. Generally speaking, most non-automobile cases must be either settled or filed in the appropriate court within one year of the date of the incident. This can include general injury cases and wrongful death cases. If you were in an automobile accident where there was injury and damage to your vehicle, you generally have two years from the date of the collision to either settle your claim or file suit.

That statute of limitations can be extended in some circumstances depending on the last date PIP benefits were paid towards your related medical bills. Every case is different, so it is important you speak to an experienced Hopkins County personal injury attorney immediately to evaluate your case and proceed with the claim within the appropriate statute of limitations. Failure to file or settle your claim within the statute of limitations will forever bar your ability to recover from the at-fault party.
