What is my case worth?

There are a variety of factors than will impact the amount of compensation that you can recover in a personal injury claim. Personal injuries can have serious financial, physical, and emotional burdens. The value of your case essentially hinges on the impact that these burdens have on your life and any financial losses incurred as a direct result of the accident. This includes the nature of your injuries, the type of medical treatment you receive, recovery time, and the long-term effects of the personal injury.

A personal injury lawsuit generally seeks economic and noneconomic compensation. Medical bills, loss of income, and property damage are economic damages, while pain & suffering and loss of consortium are noneconomic damages. While the level of compensation for your claim largely depends on the nature of your injuries or losses, an experienced law firm can negotiate with insurance companies to maximize your recovery. When it comes to personal injury claims, hiring the right law firm can be the difference between getting the compensation you need to recover and being left with substantial medical bills and other expenses.

Car Accidents

Car accidents can happen to anyone and can leave a lasting impact on your future. Todd County alone averages around 230 accidents each year according to the Kentucky Transportation Center. Additionally, 35% of these accidents resulted in serious injury or death. Most of these accidents could have been avoided if not for the negligence of at least one of the drivers involved. When someone else’s negligence behind the wheel causes serious injury, you need an experienced team who can get you the compensation you deserve.

When our Elkton clients are injured in a car accident, our team immediately gets to work to gather evidence and begin building your case. We offer a free case evaluation for those who have been seriously injured in motor vehicle accidents. Attorney Flora Stuart will personally review your case and guide you through your legal options. We fight for maximum compensation- recovering millions for our injured clients in Todd County and helping them get their life back on track.

Common Causes of Car Accidents

Most car accidents involve driver error or another method of unsafe driving. Some of the leading causes of car accidents include:

Distracted Driving: One of the most common negligent driving behaviors cited in accident reports is distracted driving, which is defined as any activity that takes a driver’s attention away from the road including eating or grooming. Texting is the most common of distracted driving, with the average driver spending over 3.5 minutes out of every hour behind the wheel on their phone.

Speeding: Speed limits are in place so that drivers have enough time to react and avoid collisions. A driver who fails to obey posted speed limits and traffic laws endanger themselves and everyone around them.

Driving Under the Influence: Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is both dangerous and irresponsible. Intoxicated drivers are unable to safely operate their vehicle due to delayed response times and altered perceptions.

Tailgating: Following too closely to a leading vehicle significantly reduces the amount of time to avoid a collision. If the driver has to use their breaks for any reason, the tailgater will almost always rear-end the vehicle in front of them.

Dangerous Road Conditions: Both state and local governments are required to maintain safe road conditions at all times. If a roadway left in disrepair causes an accident, the entity tasked with maintaining that stretch of road can be named in a personal injury claim.

If you have been involved in a car accident and suspect that the other driver engaged in any of these behaviors, contact our Elkton car accident lawyers today.

Semi Truck Accidents

Semi-trucks can cause catastrophic injury when they strike a vehicle or motorcycle due to their weight and size. While the average weight of passenger vehicles is around 4,000 pounds, tractor-trailers can weigh up to 80,000 pounds when fully loaded. Although the industry is highly regulated to promote safety, thousands of innocent drivers are seriously injured or killed by these big rigs every year. Between 2012-2016, Todd County alone had 91 accidents involving semi-trucks according to the KTC. 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.

How Do Semi-Truck Accidents Differ From Other Types of Auto Accidents?

One of the major differences between semi-truck accidents and standard car accidents is the severity of injuries caused by each accident category. While car accidents kill thousands of people each year, the proportion of accidents involving semi-trucks that result in serious injury or death is much higher. This is largely due to the weight and size of these vehicles, as well as these vehicles being more difficult to maneuver and come to a complete stop.

Additionally, multiple parties may share liability in a semi-truck accident. Instead of holding only the other driver responsible, separate claims may have to be filed against the trucking company, the driver, the loading company, the maintenance company, or a number of other parties who are responsible for maintaining the safety of the tractor-trailer.

Consequently, trucking companies carry more extensive insurance policies to cover the damages and are often willing to pay substantial legal fees to protect their finances. This not only makes semi-truck accident cases complex, but they also require considerably more time and effort to build a successful case. Without an experienced Elkton semi-truck accident lawyer to guide you through this process, receiving adequate compensation for your injuries will be extremely difficult.

Motorcycle Accidents 

Motorcycle accidents often result in severe injuries to riders and passengers. Walking away from an accident is rare and some riders are left with permanent damage. Riders are aware of these risks and do what they can to protect themselves on the roads. Sadly, motorcycle operators can only do so much to ensure their own safety, especially when negligent drivers fail to do their part.

With over 45 years of experience, our Elkton motorcycle accident lawyers understand these dangers better than anyone. We have successfully represented hundreds of motorcycle accident victims and their families in their time of need. Contact us today for a free case evaluation.

Wrongful Death

Many of the accidents that lead to fatalities could have been prevented if not for the carelessness or reckless behavior of another. When a loved one loses their life due to the negligence of another, the negligent party should be held accountable for their actions. Surviving families are often left with medical bills and funeral costs on top of the emotional loss that comes with the death of a loved one.

At Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers, we believe that the responsible party should pay for these expenses so that the family can begin healing. Our Elkton wrongful death lawyers have fought for grieving families to seek justice and fair compensation for over 45 years. Contact our experienced team of wrongful death attorneys for a free case evaluation.
