The team at Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers recently represented an elderly woman and her son who were injured in a car accident in Logan County, Kentucky.
Our clients, Stacy and Ben, were driving on Lewisburg Road near Russellville when another driver lost control of his vehicle and slid into oncoming traffic. Stacy was unable to avoid the collision and smashed into the negligent driver, eventually coming to a stop in a nearby ditch.
Our firm immediately performed a thorough investigation of the accident and found the other driver to be liable for any damages sustained by our clients. After building a case and preparing for litigation, our Russellville personally injury lawyers successfully negotiated a six-figure settlement with the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
Although the pair were wearing safety belts at the time of the collision, the resulted in severe injuries, including a fractured tibia, a clavicular fracture, chest trauma, and bruising. Emergency medical services arrived at the scene and immediately transported them to Logan Memorial Hospital for treatment.
Ben and Stacy’s injuries required extensive medical treatment and would likely result in long-term complications. By the time they retained our firm’s services, they had already accrued well over $100,000 in medical bills alone.
Recovering from your injuries should always be the priority after a car accident, but it can be difficult to focus on your health as bills begin to pile up. Fortunately, personal injury lawsuits allow victims of negligence to recover financial compensation for their injuries and losses.
To maximize compensation on behalf of our clients, our firm immediately gathers all medical records and reserves PIP benefits to alleviate the financial strain these accidents can cause. We also handle all negotiations with the at-fault drivers insurance company and pursue maximum compensation on our clients’ behalf.
We believe that no one should have to pay for something that wasn’t their fault and holding the negligent party accountable is the best way to ensure that our clients aren’t left with any additional expenses.
In this case, we were able to recover a maximum settlement for our clients and secure full policy limits from the at-fault driver’s insurance. In total, Ben and Stacy were awarded nearly $200,000.
