Car Accidents

Our law firm has represented hundreds of accident victims in Greenville, Central City, and all of Muhlenberg County, which encountered an 11.7% increase in vehicle crashes between 2012-2016. The majority of these accidents were caused by distracted driving, drunk driving, and other negligible actions by the at-fault party. Furthermore, a one-mile section of US 431 in Muhlenberg County had more fatal crashes than any other part of the state, making it the deadliest stretch of road in Kentucky. Fortunately, our team of car accident specialists will immediately travel to our clients at their homes or in the hospital to begin working on their case. We’re local and we care.

Most Common Car Accident Injuries

In some cases, those involved in a car accident may be able to walk away without a scratch. Other times, the injuries sustained may be life-threatening or cause permanent damage. Some of the most common injuries in a car accident include:

  • Soft Tissue Injuries: The impact of a car accident can cause the muscles, ligaments, and tendons in the body to stretch or tear resulting in a soft tissue injury. These injuries can cause pain, swelling, bruising, and a loss of function. Some of these injuries, such as whiplash, may have symptoms that are delayed for 24 hours or more after an accident, so it is important to receive medical treatment as soon as possible.
  • Head Injuries: Head injuries are the most commons types of injuries suffered in car accidents. A blow or jolt to the head can cause serious and sometimes permanent damage to your brain, resulting in physical and/or cognitive disabilities. Concussions, traumatic brain injuries, contusions, diffuse axonal injuries, and skull fractures are just a few of the head injuries that can occur after a car accident.
  • Chest and Abdominal Injuries: These injuries typically occur when a car accident victim’s torso strikes the steering wheel, dashboard, or other internal area of the vehicle. This blunt force trauma can seriously damage major organs and cause internal bleeding, which usually requires surgery. Collapsed lungs, broken ribs, ruptured diaphragms, and severe contusions are all common types of chest and abdominal injuries found in car crashes.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Car accidents can cause trauma to the spinal cord or the surrounding tissues, including ligaments, discs, and vertebrae. With enough force, the spinal cord can become fractured or dislocated causing severe damage. Many spinal cord injuries result in permanent damage and may even cause impaired motor function or paralysis.

Even if you don’t think you have been injured in a car accident, it is important to receive medical treatment immediately after an accident. Waiting to seek treatment for too long after an accident can impact the strength of your case. Fortunately, our team of car accident experts will immediately travel to our clients at their homes or in the hospital to gather evidence and begin working on your case. Call us today for a free case evaluation. We’re local and we care.

Semi-Truck Accidents

Semi-trucks can cause catastrophic injury when they strike a car or motorcycle due to their weight and size. Muhlenberg County averages around 60 accidents involving eighteen-wheelers each year, with many causing serious injury or death. Although truck drivers are aware of the dangers they pose to motorists, they are not immune to certain distractions or mishaps. Most of these accidents are caused by truck drivers committing unsafe lane-changes, U-turns, driver inattention, or another method of unsafe driving. If you or a loved one has been injured by a big truck, our Greenville semi-truck accident lawyers will arrive on the scene immediately after called to investigate accidents in Muhlenberg County.

Causes of Semi-Truck Accidents

Although truck drivers are aware of the dangers they pose to motorists, they are not immune to certain distractions or mishaps. Most of these accidents are caused by truck drivers committing unsafe lane-changes, U-turns, driver inattention, or another method of unsafe driving. If you or a loved one has been injured by a big truck, our Greenville semi-truck accident lawyers will arrive on the scene immediately after called to investigate accidents in Muhlenberg County.

  • Distracted Driving: Any activity that diverts attention away from the road is considered distracted driving. Given that truck drivers spend thousands of hours each year operating their big rigs, it is no surprise that some get distracted from time to time. They may be checking their GPS, eating behind the wheel, texting, changing the radio station, or doing something else to stay occupied. Unfortunately, even the tiniest distraction can spell disaster for other drivers on the road.
  • Driver Fatigue: Not only do semi-truck drivers spend thousands of hours on the road, but they may be required to drive for up to 11 hours on any given day with few breaks and little rest. As exhaustion sets in, truck drivers may experience delayed reaction times and a loss of concentration.
  • Speeding: When truck drivers are going too fast, their vehicles are more difficult to control and take longer to safely come to a complete stop, especially in poor weather conditions. Still, many truck drivers are under a strict deadline and may decide to drive faster to make up some time. This creates a dangerous situation for themselves and everyone around them. According to the FMSCA, about one-third of all fatal truck crashes involved speeding.
  • Driving Under the Influence: Although impaired driving is less common than other causes of semi-truck accidents, truck drivers have a higher rate of drug and alcohol abuse than you may think. Some truckers use stimulants, such as amphetamines or cocaine, to stay awake or focus while driving. Others may use alcohol other drugs to cope with the stress of their tough jobs. No matter the reason, drugs and alcohol impair reaction time and lead to serious injuries on our highways.
  • Poor training and Maintenance: There are many regulations and requirements that commercial drivers and trucking companies must follow. However, some truckers find themselves on the road without adequate training. Big rigs also require regular maintenance and care which creates added expenses for trucking companies. Unfortunately, cost-cutting measures can make these vehicles even more deadly.

Motorcycle Accidents

The dangers of riding motorcycles are all too familiar especially with negligent drivers of trucks and cars on the road. Riders can be ejected from their bikes and have very little protection in the event of an accident. Although motorcyclists are responsible for less than 1% of the miles traveled on our roads, they are at a much higher risk of facing serious injury or death after an accident. In Kentucky, motorcycle riders account for 17% of vehicle fatalities and face 47 times more danger than vehicle occupants according to the National Motorcycle Institute. Not only is it difficult for car and truck operators to spot motorcyclists on the road, but distracted drivers may never even see a motorcycle rider before it’s too late. If you or a loved one have been injured in a motorcycle accident, call our Greenville motorcycle accident lawyers for a free case evaluation. We represent riders and work for maximum recovery.

How Much Is My Motorcycle Accident Case Worth?

Every motorcycle accident case has a variety of factors that could change the value of your settlement. Our role as Greenville motorcycle accident attorneys is to work with our clients and the insurance companies to determine how much is enough to compensate a victim for their losses. When determining the value of a motorcycle accident case, three things must be considered: damages, liability, and the strength of your case.

  1. Proving liability is the first step in determining the value of your claim. If you cannot prove another party’s liability, you may be unable to obtain any financial recovery for your case. Even if you are able to establish liability, the at-fault party may have inadequate insurance coverage to cover all of the damages you incurred as a result of the accident.
  2. The damages you suffered as a result of the accident has a direct impact on the value of your claim. In most cases, the value of your claim increases along with the amount of damages suffered. Because motorcycle accidents often cause serious injuries and require more recovery time, the value of these cases are usually more substantial than other personal injury claims.
  3. The final element impacting the value of your claim is the strength of your case based on the four elements of a personal injury lawsuit: duty of care, breach of duty, causation, and damages. If the likelihood of a judge or jury ruling in favor of the plaintiff is higher, we are able to command a higher settlement from the insurance company.

Although each case is different, the Greenville motorcycle accident lawyers at Flora Templeton Stuart accident injury lawyers have a proven track record of securing favorable outcomes. We have a success rate of over 90% and have recovered millions for those injured in motorcycle accidents. Contact us today for a free case evaluation and find out how much your case could be worth.
