Louisville truck accidents result in serious injuries to other drivers and the occupants of smaller vehicles. Louisville is a busy commercial artery as many interstates and major roads connect freight hubs throughout the Midwest. According to accident and injury statistics provided by the Kentucky State Police, Jefferson County has one of the highest numbers of truck accidents with injuries in all of Kentucky.
Car accidents in Louisville can generate substantial forces which injure the body in an accident. When the accident involves a commercial truck the likelihood of serious injuries or a fatal accident significantly increases. The weight and size difference between semi-trucks, construction vehicles, coal trucks, logging and commercial trucks and a passenger car or SUV can result in heavy force trauma for the occupants of the smaller vehicles.
Louisville truck accidents result in serious injuries and often result in permanent injury or disabilities. Catastrophic injuries which leave a person permanently injured often require modifications to the injured person’s home and vehicles. The injuries sustained in a truck accident can even affect your ability to earn a living or the type of work you will be able to perform in the future.
If the accident results in a loss of life, the estate or family of the victim must bring a “wrongful death” lawsuit within a relatively short period of time. It is important to contact our experienced attorneys as soon as possible after any accident. HLH works to preserve witness statements while they are fresh, as well as critical evidence from the accident scene and the vehicles themselves.
