Car Accidents 

When we get behind the wheel, none of us expect to be involved in a car accident. The accident itself can be a stressful experience, but the weeks following the accident can be even more difficult.

After the initial shock of the accident wears off, many victims are left with substantial medical bills, lost wages, physical therapy, and trauma.

When this happens, car accident victims have the right to seek compensation from the at-fault party.

At Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers, we believe in shouldering the burden for our clients and holding the negligent party accountable for their actions.

Contact our Burkesville car accident lawyers today to speak with one of our skilled attorneys.

How To Prove The Other Driver Is Liable

Car accidents are usually the result of negligence on behalf of at least one driver involved.

Determining liability in these accidents may seem straight-forward but proving liability in a car accident can be both challenging and frustrating.

A successful auto accident claim is able to prove that one of the drivers behaved negligently and that the negligence directly resulted in the accident and any injuries sustained in the crash.

To prove fault, each element of a negligence claim must be satisfied, including:

  • Duty: The driver that caused the accident had a duty to act reasonably to avoid injury to others on the road. All drivers have the duty of care to safely operate their vehicles, pay attention when driving, avoid collisions, and follow the rules of the road.
  • Breach: If a vehicle operator does not follow the duty of care and fails to act as a reasonable person would under similar circumstances, their duty has been breached.
  • Causation: The actions of the driver who was behaving negligently directly caused the accident.
  • Damages: The accident caused by the driver who was behaving negligently caused you some sort of damages, either in the form of bodily injury or monetary loss.

As Burkesville car accident lawyers, it is our job to create a strong case that is able to prove each element of a personal injury claim.

Our team will come to the scene to take pictures and speak to witnesses, perform accident reconstructions, consult with experts, and perform any other measure that can shed some light on the accident.

We have helped thousands of accident victims get their life back on track after an accident, recovering millions for our clients in the process.

If you still aren’t sure if you have a case or if you share responsibility for the accident, contact us today.

We offer a free case evaluation to determine the best course of action after an accident.

Semi-Truck Accidents

Driving in Kentucky means sharing the road with semi-trucks and other big rigs.

Accidents happen, but accidents involving 18-wheelers can quickly turn into a life-threatening ordeal.

If you have been injured in an accident with a semi-truck or another commercial vehicle, our Burkesville semi-truck accident lawyers at Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers are here to help.

We understand the stress and pain that comes with being a victim of a trucking accident, which is why we are dedicated to protecting the rights of our clients.

Contact us today for a free case evaluation.

Who can be held liable for the injuries I sustained?

Semi-truck accidents are extremely complex. Not only are the injuries in the accidents typically more severe but determining who exactly is at-fault and recovering damages can be a daunting task.

As opposed to a standard car accident, several parties can be held liable for the damages in a commercial truck accident, including:

  • Truck driver
  • Trucking company
  • Owner of the truck/trailer
  • Truck manufacturer
  • Leaser
  • Truck loader
  • Owner of the cargo
  • Maintenance company

Determining fault is only the first step, however. As opposed to typical car accidents, several parties can simultaneously be responsible for the accident in some capacity.

When this occurs, separate personal injury claims must be filed for each party involved, with each having their own insurance coverage and protective measures in place to limit their financial responsibility.

Without extensive knowledge of the trucking industry and experience with trucking litigation, receiving adequate compensation for your injuries is next to impossible.

This is a major challenge for accident victims, which is why our Burkesville semi-truck accident lawyers will handle this process on your behalf.

Motorcycle Accidents

While motorcycle accidents can occur in the blink of an eye, your injuries and the financial burdens stemming from the crash can persist for months or even years after the crash.

The vast majority of accidents involving motorcycles cause injuries to the rider that requires medical attention.

Many motorcycle accident victims accrue tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills, and many more are unable to return to work or provide for their families.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident in Cumberland County, contact our Burkesville motorcycle accident lawyers for a free case evaluation. The experienced team at Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers will help to recover fair compensation for your injuries and losses.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Head-On Collisions: Head-on collisions can be catastrophic for motorcycle riders.

More than half of all motorcycle accident fatalities occur between motorcycles and other vehicles, with most being head-on collisions.

Intersections are particularly dangerous for riders, with negligent drivers running red lights and stop signs.

Unsafe Lane Changes: Drivers who fail to check their mirrors and blinds spots before changing lanes cause thousands of accidents each year.

Due to a motorcycle’s compact size, drivers who ignore this responsibility can sideswipe riders or cause them to swerve, causing serious injury.

Left-Hand Turns: Many motorcycle accidents are caused by passenger vehicles making left-hand turns and either striking a motorcyclist or forcing them to swerve to avoid a collision.

Passing and overtaking is extremely dangerous for riders, especially when other drivers fail to notice the motorcycle or misjudge the speed of these vehicles.

Speeding: Speeding significantly reduces the amount of time that drivers have to react to changes or hazards on the road. Without adequate time to assess the road and other vehicles, drivers are unable to avoid collisions or spot a motorcyclist.

Additionally, speeding increases the force of impact, making accidents involving motorcycles even more deadly.

Road Conditions: Although riders should be aware of road hazards, such as debris, potholes, or wet pavement, they aren’t always at-fault for single-vehicle accidents.

The city, county, or state where the accident occurs is responsible for properly maintaining the roads and highways. If these entities fail to do so, victims may hold them accountable for the accident.

Pedestrian Accidents

When a vehicle strikes a pedestrian or cyclist, there is nothing to protect themselves from serious injury.

While urban areas have much higher rates of pedestrian accidents, serious injuries occur every day on country roads and rural areas. Drivers have a duty to share the road and watch for pedestrians.

Drivers who engage in negligent behavior, such as speeding, disobeying traffic signs, or failing to field should be held accountable for their actions.

Whether you or a loved one was struck in a crosswalk, intersection, sidewalk, or on the road, contact our Russell Spring pedestrian accident lawyers.

We have fought for the rights of our clients for over 45 years and can get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one is a painful experience. When the death was caused by negligent behavior or could have been prevented, it can be even more traumatic.

Although wrongful deaths can be extremely difficult, holding the negligent parties accountable can provide some sense of justice and closure for the surviving family.

This is most often in the form of financial compensation, providing the family with the support they need to ease their financial burdens during this difficult time.

We understand that no amount of money will bring back a loved one. However, we believe that pursuing justice against the negligent party can alleviate some of the stresses and hardships that come with losing a loved one.

To find out more about how we can help after a wrongful death, contact us today at (888) 782-9090 and speak with one of our Burkesville wrongful death lawyers.

During our initial consultation, we will evaluate your case for free and provide honest legal advice about your case.

Slip & Fall/Premises Liability 

When you go out to shop, work, or even visit with friends and family, the property owners have an obligation to maintain a safe environment for invited guests.

Unfortunately, some building owners or managers fail to address potential hazards and may endanger their visitors.

This negligent behavior increases the risk of injury and creates an unsafe premise for customers, patrons, guests, or any other person who had a right to be on the property.

A slip & fall accident is the most common type of premises liability claim. Wet, icy, or uneven flooring conditions are often cited in these cases.

However, other hazards including floor debris, cables running across a walkway, unsafe stairs, and even poor lighting may be considered types of negligent behavior on behalf of the property owner.

These conditions can cause serious injuries to guests, including bone fractures, spinal cord injuries, and severe bruising. Aside from slip and fall accidents, a premises liability claim may involve:

  • Dog bites/animal attacks
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Stairway, elevator, or escalator accidents or defects
  • Inadequate building security leading to injury/assault

No matter how you were injured, the negligent party responsible should be held accountable for their careless behavior.

We have over four decades of experience recovering damages for those injured due to someone else’s negligence and have recovered millions for our clients.

We work on a contingency fee basis, meaning that you pay nothing unless we win your case. Contact our Burkesville slip and fall lawyers for a free case evaluation.
