Kentucky is home to some of the busiest interstates and state routes in the US. The amount of commercial trucking combined with local UPS, FED Ex, delivery vehicles, coal and lumber trucks unfortunately leads to a number of accidents throughout Kentucky. A Louisville truck accident case requires an experienced injury attorney with extensive and proven success in trial work.
Most commercial trucks are covered by multiple layers of insurance. There are many legal steps required to determine all of the potential sources for recovery when our client has been injured in a Kentucky truck accident. The truck driver may carry their own insurance, or it may be provided by the company who owns the truck itself. If the truck is leased, and the issues associated with the accident and injuries was a mechanical failure on the truck or tractor-trailer, the leasing company may share a portion of the responsibility for the accident.
Truck accident cases often involve serious injuries and substantial sums of money.
