At Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers, we go above and beyond for our clients, fighting for maximum compensation and helping the injured make a full recovery.

How Do I Pay For An Attorney?

One of the biggest reasons that accident victims are hesitant to hire an attorney is because of the costs and fees associated with taking legal action. We believe that everyone has the right to quality legal services, which is why our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This is an arrangement where a client does not pay any upfront fees or out-of-pocket expenses to hire a lawyer. Instead, your attorney will continue to work for free until the conclusion of your case. If the attorney loses the case, you pay nothing. If they are successful, they are paid a percentage of the recovery, which is the total amount of compensation awarded to the client.

Contingency fees are beneficial to both the client and the attorney. The client does not have to pay any legal costs upfront, and the attorney is incentivized to maximize your recovery in a timely manner. This system allows anyone to be able to afford an attorney regardless of their financial situation. If you still have questions regarding contingency agreements, we encourage you to speak to one of our Henderson personal injury lawyers for a free case evaluation. We will review your case, provide expert guidance, and answer any questions that you may have related to your case. This service is completely free and there are no risks involved, so call 888-782-9090 or fill out a contact form to consult with an attorney today.

Car Accidents

According to the Kentucky Transportation Center, Henderson County experiences over 1,500 car accidents every single year. Nearly all of these accidents resulted in some type of injury, property damage, or fatality. When these accidents are the result of negligent, reckless, or careless behavior by one of the drivers involved, the victims are entitled to compensation for their injuries and losses.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident in Henderson County, contact our Henderson car accident lawyers today to schedule your free case evaluation. We have over 45 years of experience representing car accident victims and have collected millions for our injured clients.

Proving Liability in a Car Accident

If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident due to the negligence of another, you have the right to compensation for your injuries and losses. However, these rights come with one condition: it is the burden of the injured party filling the claim to prove liability in the accident. This means that if another vehicle strikes you and causes injury, you must be able to prove that they were at-fault for the accident based on negligence. To prove liability in a car wreck case, you will need to demonstrate:

  1. Duty: The at-fault driver had a legal duty to act reasonably to avoid injury.
  2. Breach: The at-fault driver violated, or breached, the duty of care.
  3. Causation: This breach by the at-fault driver directly caused the victim’s injuries.
  4. Damages: The victim has incurred actual damages as a result of the accident.

Proving all four elements of a personal injury claim can be difficult on your own. If you decide to handle this process yourself, be sure to take any and all steps to preserve evidence and establish fault for the accident. This includes taking pictures, exchanging contact information, contacting the police, and speaking to witnesses. For minor accidents, these steps may lead to a fair settlement from the at-fault drivers insurance company. In major accidents that cause serious injury, we recommend speaking to one of our Henderson car accident lawyers immediately.

Not only will we gather evidence at the scene to protect our clients, but we have the resources and experience to maximize compensation for your injuries and losses. This includes consulting with accident reconstructionists and crash experts, hiring expert witnesses, and building a strong case to give you the best chance of securing a favorable outcome. Contact us today for a free case evaluation.

Semi-Truck Accidents

Semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles pose a unique threat to other vehicles on our roads and highways. These vehicles can weigh up to 20 times more than the average passenger vehicle, which is why most accidents involving eighteen wheelers result in severe injuries or fatalities. To make matters worse, many of these accidents could have been prevented if not for negligence on the part of the truck driver and/or their companies.

At Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers, we believe in holding the at-fault party accountable for the devastation they have caused. If you or a loved one has been injured in a commercial vehicle accident, our Henderson semi-truck accident lawyers are here to help. We have obtained multimillion-dollar settlements for semi-truck accident victims and their families and have 45 years of experience in trucking litigation. We will fight to get the compensation you deserve for your injuries and losses and will be with you every step of the way. Contact us today at 888-782-9090 or fill out the form at the bottom of the page for a free case evaluation.

Insurance Coverage for Semi-Trucks in Kentucky

All vehicles are required to carry certain insurance policies to protect themselves and others in the event of an accident. Depending on the coverage, most policies have a policy limit, which is the maximum amount of money that an insurer is obligated to pay to cover the damages in a car crash. For most drivers in Henderson County, the policy limit is $25,000 per person and $50,000 per incident.

However, since semi-truck accidents often cause far more damage than standard car accidents, the minimum insurance requirements for big rigs and other commercial vehicles are much higher. The minimum limits of coverage for commercial vehicles in Kentucky are:

  • $5,000,000 for any trucks carrying hazardous materials
  • $1,000,000 for any trucks carrying oil
  • $750,000 for any trucks carrying general freight
  • $300,000 for any trucks carrying household goods

Although a trucking company carries higher policy limits, this does not necessarily mean that you will get all of the compensation that you are entitled to. With that much money on the line, many trucking companies will do whatever it takes limit their financial responsibility when an accident occurs. It takes an experienced team with a proven track record of success to go toe-to-toe with the trucking company and their insurance company to get the compensation you deserve.

Our Henderson semi-truck accident lawyers have obtained multimillion-dollar settlements for our accident victims and have over 45 years of experience in trucking litigation. We have the skill and the resources to fight for your rights and provide personal representation to our injured clients. To learn more about your legal rights and rights following an accident with a semi-truck, call 888-782-9090 for a free case evaluation.

Motorcycle Accidents

When an accident involving a motorcycle occurs, the injuries tend to be more severe than other types of auto accidents. Without the benefit of a protective frame, the rider takes on far more of the impact than if they were in a car. These injuries cause victims’ significant pain, stress, and money. Some victims are left with permanent disabilities and others lose their lives due to another driver’s negligence. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, our Henderson motorcycle accident lawyers can help you get compensation for:

  • Medical bills

  • Wrongful death

Premises Liability

When a property owner’s negligence leads to a severe injury, the injured party has a right to collect compensation for their injuries and losses. These are referred to as premises liability cases, which are a type of personal injury case where an injury occurs due to unsafe conditions on someone else’s property. There are many situations that can be considered premises liability cases, including:

  • Slips & falls
  • Snow and ice accidents
  • Dog bites and animal attacks
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Negligent security leading to assault or injury
  • Poor maintenance

Like most other personal injury cases, premises liability cases are based on negligence. A successful case will demonstrate that a property owner failed to make a reasonable effort to maintain safe conditions for visitors. This is where our Henderson slip and fall lawyers come into play.

Our team will do everything in their power to build a strong case for our clients, including gathering evidence and consulting with experts to prove negligence on behalf of the property owner. The statute of limitations for these types of accidents is just one year from the date of the injury, so time is of the essence. Contact our Henderson premises liability lawyers today to speak with an experienced attorney today, free of charge.
