As the third leading cause of death in the United States, accidents happen frequently and without warning. The monetary costs associated with these injuries are astronomical, but the financial impact can seem insignificant compared to mental and physical harm that these accidents can cause to victims.

  • Car Accidents

If you or a loved one has been injured due to the negligence of another, contact our Leitchfield personal injury lawyers as soon as possible. Attorney Flora Templeton Stuart will personally get to work immediately to build your case and secure a favorable outcome.

How Much Does A Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?

If you have been injured due to another party’s negligence, you likely have substantial medical bills and other losses. Paying these bills can daunting- especially when your injuries prevent you from going to work or earning an income. Hiring an attorney after an accident may seem like an added expense, but it could offer you the best chance to recover adequate compensation.

At Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Attorneys, we understand how overwhelming the whole experience can be. Paying for an attorney should be the least of your worries which is why we work on a contingency fee basis. This means that our clients pay nothing upfront and we get paid only if your case is successful. You never pay anything out of your own pocket.

If you are still unsure whether or not hiring a lawyer is the best option for you, we recommend contacting our Leitchfield personal injury attorneys for a free case evaluation. We will review the details of your case free of charge and provide guidance so that you can make best choice for you.

How Long Do I Have to File A Car Accident Claim?

Most people know that seeking legal advice after a car accident is crucial in order to be compensated for their injuries. However, not everyone knows that there is a time limit on when a person can bring a legal claim, referred to as a statute of limitations. Having a strong understanding of these statutes and knowing how they apply to your case is one of the best ways to protect yourself after a car accident.

In Kentucky, most car accident victims have only two years from either the date of the crash or the last no-fault medical payment to bring a claim for their injuries. If a claim is not submitted within this timeframe, victims are unable to pursue any legal remedy by the at-fault party for the incident. If you are approaching this deadline, contact our Leitchfield car accident lawyers as soon as possible. We will immediately get to work on your claim so that you can be compensated for your losses.

SEMI-TRUCK ACCIDENTS 

Car accidents are dangerous enough. But when one of the vehicles is much larger and can weigh over 80,000 pounds, the potential for disaster rises significantly. Trucking companies and drivers are regulated by strict laws to prevent the destruction that these accidents cause. Still, thousands of innocent drivers are seriously injured or killed by these big rigs every year. If you or a loved one has been injured in a semi-truck accident, you shouldn’t have to carry the responsibility of someone else’s negligence. Our skilled Leitchfield semi-truck accident lawyers can help you get the compensation you need for your medical bills, lost wages, pain & suffering, and more.

How Are Semi-Truck Accidents Different Than Other Personal Injuries?

Compared to other personal injuries, semi-truck accidents often cause more severe injuries and may even lead to fatalities. For this reason, the costs of compensating a truck accident victim are much higher leading to more extensive insurance policies on behalf of trucking companies. Although these policies allow for higher settlements, trucking companies won’t part with their money easily. The goal of insurance adjustors is to weaken your case and reduce the value of your claim as much as possible. Without an experienced Leitchfield semi-truck accident lawyer on your side, you may accept a settlement that is far less than the actual value of your case.

Also, many semi-truck accident and wrongful death claims have more than one party that is responsible for the accident. This may include the driver, trucking company, manufacturer, truck owner, cargo loader, and/or other parties that are all trying to avoid liability for the accident. With this many parties involved, recovering adequate compensation can be tricky. Fortunately, attorney Flora Templeton Stuart has handled semi-truck accident cases for over 43 years. Our firm is successful in over 90% of our cases and has recovered millions for our clients in the process. Contact us today to see how our Leitchfield semi-truck accident attorneys can help you.

MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS 

Motorcycles often result in severe- and sometimes fatal- injuries to riders and passengers. 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 43 years of experience, our Leitchfield 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. 

Can I Still Recover Damages If I Wasn’t Wearing A Helmet?

Although helmets are not always required by law, they can significantly reduce the severity of injury and save lives. Kentucky law states riders over the age of 21 who have held a valid motorcycle operator’s license for over a year are not required to wear a helmet. For everyone else, including passengers of all ages and experience, the law states that a helmet must be worn at all times. It is important to understand these laws as a rider, not only for your safety but how they relate to your compensation in the event of an accident.

Those who opt-out of this added safety measure are often left wondering if their decision prevents them from receiving compensation for their injuries. On one hand, you may still be able to recover damages even if you weren’t wearing a helmet. On the other hand, choosing not to wear a helmet can dramatically reduce the value of your case. Even if you are well within your rights to ride without a helmet, insurance companies will use this in an attempt to devalue or deny claims altogether. The best way to protect yourself in this situation is to contact our Leitchfield motorcycle accident lawyers immediately and discuss your case with our skilled accident attorneys.

Pedestrian Accidents

When considering traffic injuries, most people would think of car accidents or other motor vehicle accidents. One element of these injuries that is commonly overlooked is pedestrian accidents, which represents an increasing portion of the total traffic injuries and deaths that occur each year in the United States. A pedestrian accident – being hit by a car, semi-truck, or other motor vehicle – is almost always the result of the negligent or reckless behavior of drivers.

Crossing the street or down the sidewalk shouldn’t be dangerous, yet thousands of innocent people are injured or killed each year. This isn’t just a problem in urban areas either. Although more accidents occur within city limits, the vast majority of pedestrian fatalities occur in rural areas.

Drivers have a responsibility to obey traffic laws and keep our roadways safe for both other cars and pedestrians. If you have been injured due to the negligent or reckless acts of a vehicle operator, you may be eligible to obtain compensation for your injuries and losses. Contact our Leitchfield pedestrian accident lawyers immediately.

Wrongful Death

The unexpected and untimely loss of a loved one is a tragic experience. When the loss could have been and should have been prevented, the feelings of sorrow and loss can become even more devastating. We know that no amount of money can make up for such a loss, however we believe that finances should be the last thing on your mind during the grieving process. Wrongful death lawsuits not only provide financial assistance to the surviving family; they are a way to hold the negligent party(s) responsible for their actions and deliver justice for the deceased.

What Damages Are Available In A Wrongful Death Case?

The damages awarded in a wrongful death case compensate surviving family for the emotional toll and monetary losses stemming from the death of a loved one. These damages are generally divided into three main categories: economic damages, non-economic damages, and punitive damages.

Economic damages are the monetary losses resulting from the death of a loved one. Some economic damages include:

  • Medical and funeral expenses connected to the death
  • Loss of income or expected earnings
  • Loss of benefits
  • Loss of inheritance caused by the untimely death

Non-economic damages are less tangible than compensatory damages but are usually more valuable in terms of recovery. Non-economic damages may include:

  • Mental anguish/pain & suffering
  • Loss of your loved one’s services (housework, childcare, etc.)
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of consortium

Punitive damages are meant to punish the defendant when the death is caused by an intentional act or gross negligence. Unlike economic and non-economic damages, punitive damages do not provide compensation to the surviving family. Instead, we pursue these damages to punish bad conduct and deter others from engaging in similar behavior.
